My plan was to make the Frugle Horns the "legs" of a computer desk, with just the top few inches protruding through the desktop and a third leg under the wrap around arm rest portion for stability. That would give the illusion of two small speakers sitting on the desktop. Not sure what the bounce reflection off the desktop would do, nothing good I'd imagine.

But this would be pretty simple to reverse, just a couple of cleats screwed onto the FH to keep the desk from sliding down.

Anyway, just something I've been mulling over.

BTW, I got flat packs from Dave, and I have to give them very high marks for workmanship, completeness, shipping, you name it. Really nice.

Yet, driven by my Sabre DAC and Beta 22, this turned out to be a killer configuration. I was blown away, now it is in my head, can't get it out, GAAAH.

Grrr, can't seem to stop cooking up all kinds of devious plans to get myself a pair. How I can convert a floor stander to serve as a desktop speakers.

The guitar I've heard from speakers (I'm a headphone guy) were Fostex 127's in the datasheet box reflex enclosure nearfield.

Regal,
Thanks for the response. I am still mesmerized by the sound of an Alpair 7 in FH3, Enabled by Dave of course. Although I have a pair of Fostex FF85K in a Micro Fonken singing as I write this.

I am an occasional headphone user too, got a HD-650 sitting here, ready to be driven by the Beta 22 for late night work.

Hi Dave,

Is the Australian flat-packer still in business?

Cheers

Stuey

I should have asked who it currently is; member Thornspawn seems to not be posting here lately and the link to his business 'soundwithstyle' isn't working any more.

Has there been a replacement? Sorry to hassle you.

Stu

News to me. I've not heard from him since he last ordered some drivers.

The web site isn't there, but Ben still owns the domain.

OK, thanks.

Edit: found him selling a completed pair on eBay, so I've sent him a message. It doesn't look promising though.

No worries, I don't have a problem knocking up the bits myself.

I still have some left, I no longer have access to the CNC I was using so I'm currently building my own, I'm also working on a much better website with online store that will be up and running when my CNC is.

As it happens, I have some serious personal legal issues going on at the moment that are going to prevent me doing anything as they are taking most of my time to resolve, so if you don't mind keeping us posted I'll definitely be interested in a month or so.
