    My vote is for a speaker made to sound bad on purpose My vote goes to the Auratone C5. Oh and yes, the prices on originals are rising.

    Having owned both Time Window 1 and 3 they were like Flies here in MI as they were made in Ann Arbor MI
    That being said Steve Eberbach was a smart cookie for his time and was good at 1rst order time phased crossovers

    I traded my 3 for not so Carver Amazings and still feel that a$$ rogering I took..

    Hi Folks ,

    this seems like the appropriate thread to introduce myself .... I've been collecting vintage speakers and parts for about 12 years . It's the old pro studio monitors that interest me . I built the JBL 4345 , refurbished the 4435 , L300 ( rescued from Mute Record's basement ) 4333, 4343 , and a few consumer models 4311, 4312, L150 ..... I've been really lucky to find the parts for the very rare TAD 2404 .. I've just received the networks and TD 4003 this morning . The cabinets are probably a bit better than the originals in materials and craftsmanship ( thats what I do - artist / designer ) with a formal apprenticeship in Joinery and a fine art degree ... I've taught myself enough E.E. to build my own amps and pre-amps ... I had to buy a DAC though ... cant do everything I guess . I try and build what ever I can .
