Dean, do you remember when I built that set of over-the-top DBB Cornscales?  Yopu did the crossovers for them.  They were really pretty.  That guy sent me wire to use.   Wire was claimed  to treated with with some kind of deep sea shark oil.  Looked like decent copper wire to me, I used it.  I didn't get any of shark oil on me though.

It was treated. The sales dude went diving and then rubbed the cables on his greasy forehead and sold them.

It is a special treatment that reduces oxidation.

When Form takes over Function. No price listed and I did not dig for one. I am in awe at how tasteless pursuit of a new look can become. I think there were things like this on the Queen Mary in LA.horn_brown-gallery.thumb.jpg.33de874b14181d99f562c822a4b20f97.jpg

 Looks like phase aligned horns to me. I heard the Sadurni Horns about 5 years ago, and they brought tears to my eyes. It was the best $40,000 speaker setup I ever heard. Looks can be deceving when the laws of physics are followed, first and foremost.

Can't be worse than the offering from Edgar, at a fraction of the price. 2.1 system with Seismic sub. Currently $6500 on Audio Mart.

"Smilin Steve".

 

He had more money into power cables than he had for the work you and me were doing for him. It was a crazy amount, I'm remembering $5K per power cable. Not Kidding. I think he ended up with a pair of Pipedreams. He also sent Craig a lot of money -- a ridiculous amount for custom wound transformers for some 120wpc VRDs. The last time I talked to Craig, the transformers were still sitting over there. Steve basically vanished off the face of the planet, we have no idea what happened to him.

Utter shame for spending entire retirement on power cables and other essential bits and bobs?  No....

Align the drivers, then create more sources out front via diffraction...

Hence the Danley Synergy horns have been avoiding this since 2002.
