With many years of further refinement since his Audio Artistry days Linkwitz has taken this to Orion 4. It could be interesting to compare his David and this modern digitally room corrected Goliath!
I imagine Orion will fare very well against the Lyngdorf, at least under 105db or so.

Danny's speakers look really good.

They will have tonal balance issues due to baffle design . using electronics for offset and correction A la Lyndorf will still result in an unnatural sound..

If my speakers sound as good is they look I'll be satisfied
I've made them from birch, as finish I used varnish with white pigments in it, so that the birch is even more white, matches very good with the white cones, gives a nice WAF factor

That's it It's okay if you haven't heard a lot of high-end speakers, I still want your opinion.


For me, I really really liked the Winds I heard at Totem's booth at CEDIA. They also had them going with a pair of their Tribe subwoofers. Really great sound.
Well for me this is realy easy in over 40 years plus i have yet to hear BETTER than this pair of DIY Acoustat Spectra 8800 they are huge and also sound huge 800 pounds of pure bliss.

PS: The smaller ones are my Acoustat 1+1 the baby of the tall ones only two panels compared to 8 for the 8800s.
