I agree cost is probably the largest factor. But gofar99 makes another excellent point as well, there just isn't as much incentive for it these days. However, there will always be enthusiasts who will keep it alive.

I know that carpet is the best for acoustics but we've got hardwood. I know that rugs are supposed to help with this but I'm curious if material and placement matter. I assume size matters, basically cover up as much space as possible?

Ok, they are finally finished!!! Laughing

It took me good 3 months, but it was priceless experience & education on building speaker cabinets, they are now connected in my system for initial brake-in.
I'll won't go into the details about the sound at this time as I want them to brake-in fully, it would be too early to judge them now on their sound signature...

Still I can't ignore the fact that they are already producing extremely nice sound with full scale dynamics and life-size performers in your room...

I'm so happy with finally having big sounding monitors which are not flattering signal in any way, no thumping bloated bass or scorching highs to impress you in the showroom - non of this.

Instead, they portray life size images of performers without any fuss about or any lack of headroom with crystal clear, high definition sound coming from the H290C horn + B&C250 driver... really impressive smooth performance!

I will come later during the brake-in period and give my full review of this fine sounding speaker system, bloody good work Wayne!

Thanks to everybody in showing interest in my build, I will try to make better pictures during day light as this ones are rubbish!

Ohh, that's a tough question. Everyone gets inspired by different things. I find "Fight Song" by Rachel Platten to be a super catchy, uplifting song that makes me want to dance around. But if pop music isn't your thing, that might not work for you.

I guess I'm not the only one who has something to look forward to. It's just so hard to have to wait all that time for something that you want to see or hear so badly...


It's cruel making us wait pretty much an entire year between season 7 and 8. It's even more cruel that it's going to be over after this season.

Is anyone here a turntablist or have some experience DJing with turntables or a DJ Mixer? I've been playing around with basic stuff on my computer but I'm thinking about trying it out in other mediums. Any suggestions for getting started/good equipment/random tips?
