WOW!!! I don't know about winning the race, those are flat out gorgeous Man! When were these built? I don't believe I have ever seen them.

 

As far as my pair, you may remember that Marion(Rigma)and I built our pair from the same plans. We were assured ahead of time by CBH himself that ours were as close as one would ever get to factory at that time. Once we heard that, the build was on.

 

I had to double check, but I started my Jub-Likes near the end of November, 2016 and finished them Feb. 5th, 2017.

You were a ton of help getting me started, and if I am not mistaken at the finish by passing on the HF-200s that went on the backs of my 402s.

 

But during a major panic attack which turned me temporarily insane, I sold them in the spring of 2018. 😟

I had admired your build thread for a while and your price was so good that I was trying to plan a long, long drive, but @ClaudeJ1 was faster at buying them before I could respond.

And when you turn them up they just get louder, the tone does not change, images do not get bigger and they do not get harsh. I'm pretty happy with them and my wife actually likes the way that they look in out living room (they are a special edition finished in grey Tiger's Eye veneer and Black conolly leather, only 1000 pairs were made).

I guess your are not sensitive to Intermodulation Distortion, like many people.

I had them for about 9 months but I needed the room for HT in my living room to allow for a 77" Oled TV  (or projection screen) instead of just a 55' which is all that would fit between them on my narrow wall. Plus I needed to add big tapped horn subs for HT.

 

They were the most gorgeous speakers I ever owned, thanks to Tom's excellent build. The guy I sold the to lives in the Toronto area also, and he got my TAD drivers and Danley DTS-10 Subs to go with them. He uses them out of corners with a Tube Amp on the TADs, which sounds wonderful. He says it took him a year to dial them in but he's very happy. Since you (meaning me) can't have everything in life, I had to let them go to make room, but they are, by far the best SOUNDING Klipsch Jub-like speaker I ever owned, and with Roy's 32 Hz. boost on a Xilica, I never had a need for a sub on 2-channel music. I told the guy if he ever wanted to sell them, I should have the first right of refusal, which I would then pass on the Tom, the original builder if I turned them down. Tom deserves all the praise he gets here about the build, for sure!

When I sold the K Horns I had all of the parts to build a pair of highly modified K Horns. The reason that I sold them was because I did not want to make that many changes to such rare speakers (I was told by HDBR Builder that maybe 6 pairs were made in Tigerwood). I still have everything. As a matter of fact I am doing some wood work this weekend and will probbaly attach some mahogony to my bass bins to have them complete.

Before I could finish the project I saw an old pair of B&W DM3000's for sale in the newspaper so I went and heard them. I was blown away by them, especially the midrange. I bought them. Less than one week later I drove to Los Angeles with a hangover to pick up a pair of B&W N801's. Earlier this year I sold the N801's and bought a pair of B&W Signature 800's. The N801's and S800's are just amazing. They image like crazy, true 3D deep imaging without a big gap (horseshoe shape) in the middle. They have a coherance that was like a pair of single driver speakers that I had for a short time. Tons of detail. I actually heard noise in my system that I did not hear with 103 db efficient K Horns and changed a bunch of equipment to get rid of it. And when you turn them up they just get louder, the tone does not change, images do not get bigger and they do not get harsh. I'm pretty happy with them and my wife actually likes the way that they look in out living room (they are a special edition finished in grey Tiger's Eye veneer and Black conolly leather, only 1000 pairs were made).

All these years and I just thought you liked Tiger Woods..... No BS
