The woodwork is top notch, and very nice color and finish - makes for a refined and elegant µFonkenSET.

Dave is only a common distribution point. Bernie machined the flat-pak, Chris dis the assembly, finish, and feedback (the guides to easy assembly are going to change, the biscuits did not work that well).

All i did were the drivers and attach the logo-badge.

One thing that the hastily snapped picture does not show, is that the baffles (on this pair at least) are mirrored. Another quick pic...

Liam,

These have not made the site yet. This is only the 3rd pair in existance (a 2nd beta flat-pak is being packaged to ship to Scott in the UL and a set might be under construction in Luxembourg)

A planset (skimpy at this point) is available for purchase, and we are working to put these cedar flat-paks into production -- the 1st 2 are spoken for already.

Bernie will entertain building unique art piece builds -- at the premium one should expect for a bespoke piece of art.

We will also be doing a comparison of all 3 pairs soon to see what sonic differences can be detected, and then we should build a plywood set and see how they do.

Really nice. Thanks for the update.

One of these days, I'll have time to get back to the workshop myself.
