How long to wait? As per article, he makes like 6 pairs a month.

also, did you buy direct manufacturers?

 

thanks if you can share

Every night, when I listen to my Hulgich Dukes, I am repeatedly surprised how sub-$20k can sound this good. 

 

When I auditioned some 6-figure TOTL speakers from Focal, MBL, Raidho, sure I liked the sound but they were in the realm of unaffordable for me. But now the Duke is making me want to spend the same amount of money on a larger room.

 

I've been quoted north of $200k for a 6x10 home theatre as an extension to the rear of my house. If I have spare change left over I might buy a new DAC, pre or power amp, but the Hulgichs are here to stay.

I have had my Hulgich Ella Mk2 for nearly 2 years and I am still amazed and wowed by them.  

 

Since owning them I definitely listen to music most nights, way more than I used to.  The Hulgich speakers are a bargain.

I had this whole thing about serial killers also being audiophiles not being happy with available speakers .....

 

but decided not to piss off a whole state.

Yes! Mine are are getting made now. Custom builds. (3 weeks away) and the quality of drivers he uses are the ones used in overseas speakers with 5 figure pricetags. 

Hi, Was interested in the Ascension speakers. But never could find a place to hear them. How would you describe the sound or a comparable brand?

Hi Michael.. Haven't heard them.. Mine arrive in about a week.. Have literally taken a punt on their reputation.. One person owns them after ridding a $5,000 pair of ATCscm19... Another preferred them to some very expensive B&W and his next upgrade after owning them was $10,000 pair of German speakers.. Asensions by all accounts have deep tuneful bass (transmission line) clear detailed mids and a smooth detailed treble ( no dreaded 'icepick in the ear'.. Relaxed easy listen, great accurate( not bloated) bass.. I will post some info i get them.. They have a big reputation. Mine are a 1 off Custom build large. Stand Mount. Look like a Spendor 1/2 (google that).. They're going to be in white.. 

Cheers.

Oh... I'm more curious about them now. Looking forward to your thoughts. I'm quite interested in their bookshelf speakers.

Here in Queensland we have Lenehan Audio on the Gold Coast for speakers, and within 10m of Mikes workshop there's Gieseler Audio for your DAC needs  ;)
