Since these are gen 1 CHP-70, the top end is not rolled off like the Gen 2 CHP (BTW, which I have not listened to yet). Being paper cones they are as not as bright as the CHR-70; the HF is non-fatiguing but sounds adequate to me - close to that of the EL-70; the EL-70 to my ears is more extended both on top and bottom.

Thanks Scott. Good sounding design (besides the uncommon look ), they have a nice character. Plays well with Alp 7.3 too.

Will post some better pics shortly.

Like these? They sound okay, but aren't hi-fi. The ones in the video sound great with solo cello and solo violin. Great conversation piece for the diy uninitiated.

Just recently finished my 3rd or so pair of speakers, best so far both aesthetically and sonically. These are Pass BOFU TLs (or TQWTs?). It's a straightforward build with a helper tweeter using a 4.7uF "crossover." Faceplate is from leftover 5/4 x 6 "philippine mahogany" from a deck project, glued together, cut to size and "inlaid" with zebrawood and some maple scraps I had lying around. They warped and the glue didn't want to hold, but I got it to work in the end. I'd do it with a solid piece next time, but I like the 5/4 thickness.

Can't seem to upload any more photos, so here's a link for now:

Left side is on a plywood base, right isn't. Shows some of the associated gear; TTs and CDP, Yaqin MS-12B phono stage, Marsh 200A amp (currently not using), Bottlehead Quickie preamp (currently not in use) and 3 DIY amps (a SE Mosfet amp, a SE pentode amp and a PP tube amp). Let's just say my wife is very understanding and supportive.

From the ideal listener position. Vandersteen 1Cs sit next to the BOFUs. I am very impressed by these BOFUs - Thanks Nelson! They have plenty of low end for me, are reasonably fast and detailed, yet forgiving and not fatiguing (in my VERY limited experience, fast/detailed usually means fatiguing and not forgiving on bad source material). I'm liking them more than the Vandys right now.
