Thanks for all your kind words!
mpaulsen, I don't know how they sound, but knowing Jim, I bet these open-baffles sound pretty close to the HT3. The HT3 is probably still Jim's best speaker to date. I told him he should 'hurry-up' and finish the design of his "ULTIMATE" speaker then I'll be the first to place the order.
Unfortunately I don't think I'll have the time to properly set it up and compare against my HT3, because I'll be busy packing in the coming weeks. But in two months time, I'll have a 25ft x 18ft x 10ft dedicated listening room, and I'll be able to do a proper shoot out.
