That's great, CV, but will you have enough money left over for the new speakers?

SBrown,

This is very exciting news! The pictures we should have by Tuesday are in Rosewood Natural Satin. We decided to go with Rosewood for the show. It is just such a striking finish. There will be a number of parts on the show samples which are mocked up. The grilles for sure, as the tools for those will take Jeff and Geza well over a month to make. Also some of the chassis parts for the DSP box we will have to mock up out of some sheet aluminium along with the outriggers. Debbie has already hand populated the DSP boards, no small feat, and the crossover boards. This model requires dual DSP boards, one for the front drivers and one for the rear. And of course there is not any proper pack or carton yet.

It looks like you could end up with Serial # 1R and 1L.

Ian, just use a WHOLE bunch of bubble wrap... smile


How about outriggers for the M60's/M80's?

Ken, what's the fun in being able to simply pull your speaker out of the box and use it right away.... There is not much work involved... Or anticipation... having to unwrap 5 or 6 layers of bubble wrap... Now, that's anticipation!!!.....


On a side note, one of my amps was shipped in bubble wrap.. It was a 50lb amp, wrapped in about 4 layers of bubble wrap... came to me perfectly safe...

Agreed, it is all very exciting! smile
Sorry to disappoint those with an eye on the show pair, but those will be heading over to casa Welker after the show for final evaluation. However, as Ian rightly points out, the first pairs are technically pre-production versions. The final units will have all of the "correct" parts and the DSP chassis finish will be to a higher standard. Oh, and Ian, those crossover boards were assembled by my own two hands! Crossovers I have no problems with, the surface mount parts on the DSP boards are another story. wink

This is looking like a thread from the now defunct AV123 site, just an observation. wink

Their threads spanned several hundred pages of rabid nonsense about a product that was literally conceived on a napkin. It would end with customers ponying up for said product before even an actual prototype was engineered, let alone sourcing for the parts, manufacturing of cabinets ect on a mass scale. I don't quite see the connection here.
