  1. Thanks, they are already wax oiled with Polyx (great stuff to use) the vaneers are American Oak with solid American oak trims...
  2. Just using a passive Schitt Saga, no need for any more gain as the Dac has switchable gain up to 3v, and the Speakers are HPD15" re-coned and re- foamed by me a few months ago, new crossovers from Mark Pitcher are Jantzens and are great.. Will be selling Mcintosh MC275 (like brand new with only a few hours listening on the tubes in the near future... Cheers
  3. Hi thanks for your comments... Did take some pics but not many, they took about 4 months to complete and got progressively heavy as time went on...
  4. Hi everyone Just finished a bucket list project building the Tannoy Westminster Royal SE replicas, so here as a few pics as requested for your perusal... Best regards....
  5. Sure thing, my drivers are HPD385's with Mark Pitcher Jantzen crossovers and sound great but works equally as well with the Golds too... Good luck with the Ardens...👍
  6. Hi HifiMan The dimensions are 1060mm Tall x 610mm Wide x 425 Deep.. Sorry no recordings of them in action, all I can tell you is they sound great.. I have lived happily with them for the last 6 years and I am only selling because I have ticked another bucket list essential and built myself a pair of Westminster Royal SE's. I'm sure you have heard of Earle from Weston Acoustics, he had a pair built fro a guy in Sydney and I listened to them before commissioning a cabinet friend to build mine.. Any further info please just ask... Cheers

  10. Hi Thanks for your reply, will share the pics when I have fitted the oak mouldings in a couple of weeks... I also changed my crossovers too from the original Tannoys and it made a huge difference, they were made by Mark Pitcher in the Uk, I can highly recommend his work. He is highly recommended by the Tannoy dealers I have spoken with... With the right set up and tweeks the Tannoys sound great.. Cheers Chris
  11. Hi The drivers I have in them are HPD 385 15" re-coned and re- foamed with new crossovers from Mark Pitcher who is recommended by Tannoy and there dealer network for his years of work on crossover design.. I am listening to the Westies at the moment and are in the process of fitting the American oak trims that will finish them off completelyand will post pics online then.. I am just about to post some items for sale in the classifieds if you would be interested in moving to 15" Tannoys. I have Tannoy GRF horn loaded cabinets in Vannered plywood top and sides with the matt black fronts which I have listened to for the last 5 years and they sound great, also a Weston Acoustics 30 watt Triode push pull amp from Earle and a Rega dac with Audiophilleo 1.. Let me know if you would be interested? Cheers Chris
  12. Thanks for your info... I haven’t played with vinyl for quite a few years now, do you find the difference between high quality digital compared to your vinyl colllection?
  13. Sounds like you have put together a solid system.. just have to finish the solid oak trim on the Westminster’s and they are finished.. listening to them In the meantime, will let you know when they are complete if you would like to demo.. Earl’s amps are great, I just purchased a Mac MC 275 version 6 to replace a triode push pull I had from Earl.. Needing a good preamp if you have any suggestions.. Running Roon through a Qutest dac.. Re the x overs I replaced mine with Jantzen from a Guy in the Uk who supplies the Tannoy dealers throughout the uk, he is well known by Tannoy the Factory and I found him great to deal with if you need his details let me know.. He advertises on EBay...
  14. Hi Antran what pre and power are you using?
