Excellent work!!   It's also very cool to be able to relate an acquaintance, with a moniker !

Nice to hear from you Scott! There is another Carolina GTG this Saturday at Richidoos if you can make it!

Thanks for the compliments.

Best,
Anand.

Dude, you might want to watch your back.  No doubt all the other gods in the pantheon are jealous as Hades of you.

In case you didn't realize it, that Moksha GedLee is STUNNING! That is simply beautiful craftsmanship. And, the fact you invested all that in the GedLee speaks musical volumes about your commitment to the GedLee sound.

Thank you for sharing the experience. I hope to hear it one day.

Now, back to my transistor radio.

Thank you all for the kind words of praise.

Of note, Moksha is Sanskrit for emancipation from the cycle of birth/death/rebirth or reaching “enlightenment.”

Best,
Anand.

Sorry for the late arrival, but I missed this thread first time around. Thread deserves a bump anyway!!

Wow, great work, Anand!

And it's great to know there are craftsmen like that in our area.  :thumb:

I thought I had commented on these first go around but see I am wrong. Thanks for reviving Rich.
Anand: Those are gorgeous. Are the rings such that you can change easily? If so you can do a ring of the month
thing and look at them as new each time. Very cool.

Don,

Thanks. Yes, you can change the rings on the fly. They pop in/out. In fact, I have the black ring back at the shop to add a couple blue highlights or flames. We’ll see how it turns out.

Thanks again for the words of praise...mighty encouraging  :thumb:



Best,
Anand.

An update to this thread. I rebuilt my (4) Gedlee Harper speakers that I use for surround duty as well. They are similar in design to the NA12 but have a smaller 8 inch diameter oblate spheroidal waveguide along with an 8 inch midwoofer from B&C in a sealed enclosure. The back panel is a MDF/baltic birch composite along with a Cardas CPBP binding post/plate setup. A highly efficient monitor in its own right at 93 dB with an impedance nadir of about 5.5 ohms. Easily driven by nearly any amplifier. In fact, on Tom Christiansen's intro thread, I posted pictures of my Parallel 486 which is a 4 channel, 120w/4 ohm amplifier design for these speakers. In actual use they only ever reach a max of 5-10 watts as the listening positions are 8 feet (2.4 meters) away. The use of Isoacoustics stands helps in tilting the speakers down towards the main listening area as well.









Best,
Anand.

That’s very nice work on the Gedlees, and the Parallel 486 as well. Handsome indeed. Always wanted to try a
 four Gedlee surround set-up.

Most excellent, sir!  Not that'd I'd expect any less!  :thumb:

You need a stylish rack on the wall to display the alternate trim rings! :)
