>Price prices go into effect June 1.

Oh--and Jim--I think you should change the dcr in the second tweeter shunt inductor to .4 ohms.  That will be $15,000.

Jim,

This is off topic. I'm curious if you do any custom cabinet work? I've salivated over your speaker's cabinets for quite some time. Could you or would you build custom cabs for other speakers with the proper schematics? I would try it myself but couldn't possibly make cabinets as beautiful as what I've seen you make.
By the way I'm a customer that's not concerned with paying more to be satisfied. :lol:

Thanks

I do quite often build cabinets for speakers other than ours.  The only caveat is that delivery may take time.  If you have plans (cabinet drawings I can work from), time and an adequate budget (I'm reasonalbe, not cheap), perhaps it would be possible.

:lol: Thanks Jim ..that's what I wanted to know. Reasonable is good with me. When I get everything together, I will send you the plans so you can give me an estimate on the cost. Not looking for something free just sensible. :wink:

Thanks again

I think that Wilson is one of those companies (like, perhaps, Jeff Rowland), that produce the equivalent of sonic jewelry.  Now, I happen to like both Wilson and Jeff Rowland, but I do think both are overpriced for what one gets.  I don't begrudge or belittle anyone for buying them, however (including me, as I own a JR amp).  

The DIY thread about Wilsons was interesting to me, though, from the standpoint of choosing speakers based on frequency response curves in an anechoic chamber.  I'm not sure how valid of an argument that is.  While the scientist in me loves data, I'm not sure that one should choose speakers based on only one data point (what about efficiency; transient response; etc.).  The artist in me (sadly, an atrophied part of myself) also believes in listening/touching/looking.   There has to be some happy medium, and the DIY thread tended toward the more scientific analysis using a single data point.  I'm not sure that's valid.

"Paying more just to brag about the high price never made sense to me."

Tell that to the millions of Harley Davidson owners out there!

Well, I see the MOTOR COMPANY has lulled another lemming to the crowd!  THANK GOD there is nothing like them, or we'd all be stuck with 1930's bike technology.  If audio kept that pace, you'd have your ear in the horn of an Edison cylinder player!  I've been on 5 Harleys, and frankly it made me ashamed to be an American.

Well, I guess we shall agree to disagree!   That's the great thing about being an American, there are so many choices that we all can be happy!
Now go forth and have a GREAT DAY!

Sorry, but I thought the original analogy was relevant to the discussion.

I was ok with the analogy...I just didn't want it going down the road of US vs. Japaneese products or turn into a heated debate.
