Here are some pics of a pair of sealed HT1's that shipped yesterday.

Mark Lebovits wanted a light-colored pair of speakers to use for a rear channel application in his home theater which will also have HT3's, and HTC center channel and a 15" subwoofer (others all done in bubinga).

Another great pair, Jim.  What wood is the baffle?  Spalted maple?  The way you created a 'framed' look from the front is a nice technique that I don't think I've seen in your other monitors.

Edit: Obviously I was smoking crack when I wrote the framing comment since Jim does this regularly.

Next Jim is going to tell us he set out to the Keweenaw Peninsula with snowshoes and Japanese Ryoba saw to harvest the finest quilted, spalted, birds-eye Maple used to produce the baffles for his March Veracity of the month.  

Nice work Jim
