The main speakers in the rig on the left I built. Here is a thread on them: http://www.whatsbestforum.com/showthread.php?341-Custom-DIY-horns

The little yellow speakers were just for the meet. They are normally in a back room. They are Mark and Daniel Maximus Mini. They are phenominal little speakers. You may have noticed I'm a big speaker kind of guy. These are the only book shelf speakers that have ever impressed me.

Speakers are DIY: JBL 2235H, JBL 077, Altec 802-8G on 511B horns. Cabinets are baltic birch and MDF veneered with sapele pommele

Beautiful speakers...i worked to design my equipment rack with a custom cabinet maker who is a serious audiophile...he used the exact same veneer on my equipment rack...stunning. Enjoy!

Here is a later picture with the Tascam in place. I still need to get a pic with the Music Fidelity M1DAC filling that empty shelf.

Thank you for sharing. Can I get a breakdown of the speakers, the drivers and construction in detail?

Thanks! I do enjoy the hobby on many different levels but the bottom line is just sitting and listening to the music.
..the fit and finish is right up there sir! If they sound half as good as they look, you're set! Congrats!
