My re-built circa '90 T-7's have arrived. With less then a day of playing time on them, I'm very impressed. First off, they are immensely musical and involving. Second, they are very fast, and have incredible detail and imaging. Really, they just seem to do everything right. Even with the weird shape and outdated aesthetics, they definitely rock.
I have to say that I felt like I was gambling with these. Stuart Chapman has been quietly making speakers in Washington State for the last 40 years. He has little to no marketing and doesn't have much info on the net. The people that seemed to have owned his speakers, love them. As of today, I'm very happy with my gamble. The price of the re-built T-7 seems incredibly fair considering the performance I'm hearing. Hopefully other people with chime in on Stuarts products, so that his business will increase.
A special mention to Charles of All Hart Fidelity. He is the only authorized dealer for used Chapman speakers. I highly recommend his service if you're interested in a pair.
