Yes I ordered from Cory, ordered a week ago Saturday, he was out of the 4080's so had to wait for that.  Did not ship yesterday, waiting on new confirmation now.

One of the things that I've noticed over time: once Jubs are dialed in for a particular owner's room placement, I generally don't hear from the owners again (i.e., the line generally goes dead). Apparently these people aren't having to spend time on their loudspeakers. I still help others with their DSP crossover dial-ins from time to time, but these are new owners just getting set up.

 

I've pretty much settled on acquiring better music over the past year and a half, since I discovered DSP zero phase growth crossover filters and flat phase performance. I'm spending virtually all my free time acquiring new music and demastering the new-to-me CDs as they arrive.  I've apparently reached a point in demastering them where I don't have to spend much time on the new albums to demaster them.  I'm often amazed by what is released from the recordings once demastering is done, however.  It's a really cool thing to be capable of doing effortlessly--it doesn't take any real effort nowadays.  It's a nice state to be in--finally not having to diddle with the setup, rather just using it to produce better sounding music and then listening to it, casually or critically, whatever the spirit moves me to do...

I wish I could say yes, but I don't.  The plans on this forum seem to have a very serious issue.  The bass bins that they produce apparently have an issue creating proper amounts of SPL below ~70 Hz, which says to me that there's something wrong in the last fold of the horn, probably at the back split:

Layout plans are here:

I would go back to the original plan view in the PWK/Delgado JAES article on the Jubilee bass bin and check all the dimensions provided there much more carefully.

Most of these are direct shipped from the factory. I don't think there is any issue about a "shortage"

I wonder if there is a difference between the older 3 way  Cinema Series and the Home series -------

Well, of course the choice of drivers is different. I assume the recommended DSP would correspondingly differ. The heart of the Jubilee is the bass bin, I doubt the construction differs between and home and cinema.

I am not sure what you are suggesting 

 

--------------

Okay, I see you guys are talking about the yet to be released "consumer version". It was hinted at by Roy Delgado in a youtube interview . As far as I know, there have been no details provided. It should be exciting, but I hope any "extras" don't make it unaffordable.

Correct me if I am wrong , the Cinema version was a 3 way speaker with a passive crossover while the Home version was only 2 way and an Active crossover was recommended
