Planet10 GR dCHR-Ken70's with CHR-70.3 drivers. The sound is fantastic. It took some time to get them broken in. Luckily there was lots of time to listen to them while I finished them! Thank you Dave and Mark, great drivers and a very solid and easy to build enclosure.

I'm sure they sound just as good as they look. Excellent!

Don't know since I don't have a SACD player, but the more recent ones might be an better choice, though personally, if you have a good TT system, an original 1959 LP in good condition like I'm fortunate to have has a certain little extra 'tone'/'fullness' around the instruments like one might notice sitting up close in a nightclub.

My vinyl version is a bit scratchy, but I still get the nice full tone. Drums are quite explosive too. Also own "Impressions of Eurasia", slightly worse condition unfortunately, but the track "Calcutta Blues" is not too bad and has a very good tone on the percussions IMO.

Nice builds with the Mark Audio drivers guys! I should get on the boat and try'em sometimes.

I picked up an unopened vinyl copy of Time Out at the flea market last year. $2.00 LOL.

Lucky you! I'm thinking I paid around double that circa 1960, so with inflation factored in you got it for pennies on the dollar.

Yeah, definitely a good reference back in the day and still not too shabby. Ditto some of Art Blakey's better recordings.

bAD kLOPFER,

Merry Christmas!

This is a hybrid between transmission-line and a "karlsson-speaker". Author of this speakers - Alexander Rogozhin

Hi zman01,

they sound very good. It is quite impressive what this driver is capable. As all full range loudspeakers there are some problems with big orchestras but if you stay with a smaller amount of instruments (in fact everything other than a symphony orchestra) you'll be quite happy. My mother heard "Tides of Time" from Epica, some tracks from "Tron Legacy" OST and "Stars" from Sara K. a "little" louder than normal and was impressed.
The left box is ca. 1 m away from the corner, the right box roundabout 2 m.
The box is tuned to F3=31,5 Hz.
The guy who did the plans for this speaker did some measuring. I attached one of the sheets (TQWT in red).
