Lightbulb Are These Bookshelf Speakers Good?

Would These Kit Bookshelf speakers be worth the money,
or are they expensive for what they are.
LINK
1. You have to click on the DIY SPEAKER KITS on the side menu.
2. Then Click on the BOOKSHELF KITS icon.
3. Then they are the M4 Mini Monitor Kit/PC Multimedia Speakers.

I Would Use the Speakers With a 12AX7WA Valve Pre-Amp and A 50Watt Per channel LM3886 Chip Power Amplifier.
Just For Casual Listening to Music.

Depends on what you listen to, how loud you listen etc. Looks like a decent enough little monitor to me.

doesn't look like a bad deal. Couldn't tell what the drivers were though. Check out the br-1 at parts express online for comparison sake. Its kind of an entry level speaker kit but with fairly good quality.

I've used my lm3876 amp for all kinds of wierd things and doesn't seem to get upset. You'll probably be fine. At least you'll know how to fix it if it dies.

You might also want to be aware that the supposed recommendation by diyAudio is under investigation by us moderators, as it doesn't seem to appear anywhere in our database of posts...

This is the review they used to have on the M4 on their old site and is in the review section on the new site. Will give you some insight into them.
http://www.dansdata.com/m4kit.htm

The diyaudio review but the link doesn't work.
http://www.diyaudio.com/reviews/theloudspeakerkit.php

Those that have built the M4 are very happy with it but have a look at the one in the Wiki as it will cost about the same to build but you have to cut your own MDF. It's on the same level as the M5 which is a cut above the M4.

It's no longer a commercial design but a learning tool for the DIYer.

thats an awesome project there. Very useful resource.

Valve, I would definately consider Rabbitz suggestion. Even if the two speakers were identical in quality I would build this one for educational merits.
