I'll start with the latest.

Bernie (doesn't post here) came by today with his Mar-Ken12 to get my help detailing them and wiring in the drivers. This is the 1st set i've heard (Chris has had our (unfinished) build at his house, but with stock drivers (they are now veneered awaiting time in the spray booth). Bernie's build is of solid Douglas Fir with some dark exotic or semi-exotic vent spacers (the fir used to be his floor). The aged "orangish" colour of the fir goes really well with the copper drivers.

Even with few hours on them, i get the impression that these do some things (imaging) much better than the Classic GR Mar-Ken12 that i've listened to extensively.

This is the 1st of the trapezoidal miniOnken (irregular octagons if you count the champhers) -- the configuration will spread thriout the line. The tapered shape was the solution to fitting the wide bezel A12 into the small volume it wanted (same as A10.2, FE127e, and EL70 (A10.2 will also go nto a larger version))

This, along with FonkenPrime and the uFonken, is my personal favorite

Chris gets all the credit for the boxes. Here is a picture that shows the grain matching.

pre veneer. For anyone interested, this is a fine driver in a superior enclosure.

Here's mine. It's a flat-pak from Dave. I'm currently in the process of staining it a color of sangria red.

Default My CHR-Kens

I built them out of curiosity, and ended up surprised and impressed. Nice bass extension, great bass articulation, mids are very clear. The speakers also disappear very nicely. Drivers are Planet10 CHR-70.2eN. Finally got them stained and finished about a week back...
