I have been to a NAD3020 shoot-out. Other amps was Dali Gravity and my own DIY CAD audio class D amplifier (CAD D400A with linear supply).

Preamp was Dali Detail and CD was Denon 3560. Speakers was Dali Grand Diva. NAD was only used as power amplifier.

Anyone who builds their own stuff, should have a NAD 3020 as a reference. This amp did not fail to any of the above amps. It just sounds right. Not the most refined amp, but overall still a killer amp.

Thanks for the compliments guys. I can't wait to finish the second one and get them together!

All that's left to do is the corner radii, application of the boiled linseed oil, and mounting of the driver.

Here's a quick test I did of them together. It was recorded with an iPhone. I know, faux pas. It's all I have for video capture besides a GoPro.

Fostex FE163En-S 6-inch drivers in in a pair of rear-loaded horn cabinets designed by Scott Lindgren of Woden Design.
Constructed of 3/4 inch baltic birch plywood finished in fine walnut veneer. 43.5"H x 9.5"W x 20"D...over 100 lbs each.
Need more time for the drivers to break in, but they are already sounding sweet indeed.

Hi Storm!

I'm sorry I haven't said something before now but those Woden Valiants you put together are beautiful. What are those 3" or 4" drivers you're using? Also if you don't mind my asking what are their (H, W, D) overall dimensions?

I'm listening to: Tales of Mystery & Imagination by Alan Parsons.

The drivers are 4" Fe126En's with the EnABL process done to them. I don't want to step on any toes since I agreed with Scott Lindgren not to disclose of the specifics of these. If you could defer to him about the overall dimensions, I'm sure he'd tell you.

Generally speaking, they're very large, and very heavy. The wood is west African sapele with a unique interlocking grain. It's very dense and needs to be used up quickly before it starts to warp. For these two Valiants, the sapele alone was roughly $700-800.
