Default Very nice (speakers and the cabinet)

nkolisnyk: very nice. The cabinet looks familiar. I think there was a similar one in a TAB book on hi-fi projects. (at least 30 years ago). That one incorporated a false back with huge ventilation holes, but it was suggested fans could be added as need be.

Are the half-Changs made of BB ? if not, what material? They look equally as good as the Sachikos. Nice wedding gift.

A very nice set of speakers with some grand equipment. Here are my recently constructed Pensil speakers (oak veneered MDF) being compared with my 3 year old Jardan transmission line speakers (oak with internals of MDF)

I have lived with the Jordan TL speakers for over 3 years. I considered them to be better than my 30year old BBC small monitor speakers. I decided to make the Pensils for my son with CHP-70 drivers. I completed them 9 days ago.

Compariing speakers is very subjective.

In comparison they initially sounded thinner - lacking the midrange of the TL. However as I have used them I have concluded that they are clearer than the TL which, although being fuller in the midrange, could be said to be muddy. I actually prefer them to the TLs.

I had intended to make another speaker using the Jordan drivers but found that they are not available. I understand that Lowther will be making them at some time. I then thought about making the Frugal Horn with the CHP-70 but thought that the Pensil would be easier and would take up less floor space.

If my son takes the Pensils I will probably make the Frugal Horn woth a CHP-70.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

Yep she's a beagle who doesn't seem to mind when I interrupt her sleep with music.

I made the cabinet of specific dimensions to meet my needs. The 300B amp is too wide for most cabinets (20"), and the 300disc CD transport is much too deep. Having room for LP's is a bonus!

PS: the Half Changs are BB. I was lucky enough to happen on a fresh shipment of birch to the local wood store. I picked out the most interesting pieces. My friend was going to paint them gloss black, but I was able to subtly persuade him to preserve the grain.

Default "Howard Castle" microTowers: My First DIY Project

I finally took a break from listening to them on the weekend and finished this project. Added the 1/4" plywood baffles to the front and top drivers and then stained them and put on two coats of satin. The look might not be everyone's cup of tea (my wife is still not sure about them, but my daughters think they are awesome), however I am sure everyone would agree that they sound simply incredible.

Thanks again to all who contributed to my success with this first project.

Default Odougbo's Micro Towers FX120(s)

Adding a couple of pics of a Micro Tower project; using an extra speaker(s) in the rear for additional bass, which there is plenty.
Many of the ideas were from the forum, (the 24 hot line).
Thanks folks, they sound great.
Speakers used 4 ~ FX 120(s)
