my chr-70s arrived today

can the assembled company recommend speaker binding posts?

There are different schools of thought, ranging from low-mass (be they cheap or expensive) to larger things & all points in between. As you're talking about a modestly priced setup, I really wouldn't get overly concerned about it. Decent quality generic posts should do; if you feel a desperate urge to spend more, then Neutric, Cardas, or WBT come to mind.

and can you also recommend a suitable subwoofer to go with aforementioned drive unts?

Not until you give us some kind of clue about what you're doing with them. Sadly, we're not blessed with the gift of clairvoyance.

I have built a few cabinets in my day.

Will finally build a FR in the next couple of months....Scotts Maeshowe

I have heard really nice things about these binding posts, and will
use them on this build.

Electra Interconnect Cables

Good luck


I've seen those somewhere else before - they definitely look interesting - keep us updated on ease of installation, etc.

and I hope your experience with Maeshowe mirrors my own


cheers
 
The Mark Audio line is interesting. I was surprised by the lower sensitivity than your typical full range speaker. I am looking at the Scott Moose's Sibury design for my just begun tubelab simple se amp project but wonder if it will be able to drive these well? There is no doubt I will build a horn type speaker but I want to to pair nicely with my amp project.

i suppose mine wasn't the most informative post i've ever made.

you are correct that it is "moderately priced". with the state of my ears, spending a lot of money would be a waste.

that does not mean i won't try to achieve some sort of quality.

the question about binding posts was prompted by looking at what was available. a lot of them are plastic plates which require a relatively large cutout. i was concerned about the impact of that (the plastic looked like it would vibrate.

as for the design. i have a room which is 3x6 (metres) with a vaulted ceiling and wooden floors. so lots of hard surfaces. there is a big tv on the middle of one of the shorter walls and i wanted to build an HT setup.

my original thinking was to use the flugal-horn mk.3, but have taken a shine to the lotus mbvr. i have a reasonable set of woodworking tools (never enough clamps of course) and a fair amount of woodworking skill, so i reckon i can tackle most jobs.
