I Just Called To Say I Love You
« on: January 13, 2021, 09:05:31 AM »
I spent a bunch of time after building my Jaegers positioning and re-positioning these things to get the image centered. I attribute this to my oddly shaped room more than anything. I’ve got painter’s tape on the floor to mark where my chair and each speaker goes.

The point here is that I really love these speakers. A ton of detail, even at very low volumes. Great bass without a subwoofer. They’re a nice match with the Kaiju and BeePre (and the Stereomour I have powering the tweeters).

More than anything I wanted to post a glowing review in case others were on the fence.

Nice quick review.  I don't own them but have listened to them many times at  BH headquarters and at BP's house.  They really are a great sounding speaker that was designed to work with BH gear. I hope that more people get the opportunity to hear them!

I’d rather pay you for walnut cabinets ;)

I am still working that angle. I found out yesterday that along with the new batch of birch cabinet panels that we should have by Friday or thereabouts I may be able to get some sample panels in the walnut. We have to piggy back on the walnut panel order of another client at the cabinet shop because the panels are custom made. So it's not clear if or when we might be able to do a run. But I may at least get a couple panels to look at soon.

I was mostly giving you a hard time, but that would be really great if it happened.

If the walnut panals don't work out. Learning to venier is fun, this is DIY. The  paper backed stuff is pretty easy to use...John
