Having a bad day here. Been sick with the flu since Christmas day. Had to run the snow blower for all the snow we've been getting in the NE and I did't see the WHITE bag of mail from the Saturday mail delivery in time. Saturday's mail went though my snowblower and it contained a vintage vinyl jazz album I've been waiting for. Almost makes a grown man cry.

Hi Chris,

So sorry to hear about the flu and the vinyl .....

The current stuff on the equipment rack is :
Top from the left - Greenvalve Audio Type 10 amplifier - heavily modified CGV Electronics 300B amp - CEC TL-2 CD transport
Middle from left - Camelot Uther outboard power supply - Camelot Uther DAC - Onix Cd player used as a transport
Bottom from left - Decware SC84C+ amp - spare tubes - Prototype pentode 6CA7 amp on loan from La Dolce Audio

I was able to finish up the "Round Mound" speakers today and they turned out nicely for a man with my limited woodworking skills. The important thing is that they sound good .....

The Heil drivers are mounted on small shelves that are attached to the back of the baffles with "L" brackets. It works pretty well, but I don't think they would survive too many road trips .....

Well ..... if it is, you would never know it from the great sound I am getting with these speakers. I'm not a big fan of "rules" and "numbers". I learned a long time ago that the most important thing in audio is "if it sounds good, it is good" .....

Everyone in this hobby has an opinion ..... and everyone hears differently. That is the reason there are a multitude of different approaches to speaker design, amplifier design, cable design, etc.

Enjoy the music,

Randy

Randy ole chum, belated welcome to our little sand box

my only addenda to above would be that "everyone in this hobby has many opinions, some even of their own devising " - but then you've long known my sense of humor(?) and adherence to orthodoxy

Hi Chris,

Long time no talk to .....

Good to hear that you are still among the living .....

Yep ..... I have never been one to "play by the rules" and have found that most amplifier and loudspeaker designers that tune things "by ear" rather than "by the numbers" usually end up with products more to my liking .....

Again, that is just MY opinion and the YMMV rule trumps everything else. I gave up arguing about audio years ago. I'm too busy listening to music to spend a lot of time in a non-productive pursuit.

I hope all is well with you and that you are still enjoying the audio hobby.

Best wishes,

Randy

For starters, its not a round baffle all the way. Top and bottom are different from the sides. I also suspect it's less important for bass frequencies.

At the end, the builder is happy with the results. Seems like that is overlooked too often.
