Any takers on this?

I'd propose a listening face-off between: any model from these manufacturers:

Harbeth
Devore Fidelity
Zu Audio
Magico


Hosted here in Beautiful Santa Fe, NM Spring 2023!

Harbeth 40:
Little innovation, MDF box, baffle, and back, no included stands, mid-end drivers, twin plastic port tubes (China) $50.00 Chinese crossover which is too steep (an opinion)
$30,000 msrp? (pictures)

vs.

TubeMaster Copenhagen:
Machined of solid heirloom timbers cabinet and both baffles... built for lifetime (no off-gas like MDF)
Matched modified drivers, large caps and coils (European)
Innovative internal resonator/damper/bypass-port
$24,250

We'll host the challenge!

Let's see what's best.

Zu have just released their new flagship, the Definitions 6. Per side: two full range drivers 35Hz-11kHz/three supertweeters 11kHz-35kHz/one sub woofer 35Hz and below, 101dB/1m efficient, no crossover.
Good luck w the comparison.
