You have to show us your design or I will call my uncle that works at EE and your dream will be forfeit :D

It's really similar to this, except for black shells on the inside. "Starry Night" as it's called is no longer available as an option, so had to ask Jack to see if there was any extras lying around in the back. Turns out, there was! I know Jack is a good friend of mine, but they would treat any other customer the same way.

Customer service is what I love about Jack and his family’s business. They treat us all like fam. So easy to buy from them as I love Deans various tunings.

Yep. Their line-up is also super solid now, but I'm always interested in what's coming next.

They basically run by the mentality of "what isn't broken doesn't mean it can't be improved" and I love that.

anyone tried the new Spinfit W1 with EVO?
since when I'm using the CP100 I have rediscovered the EVO, really much better balance in the upper mids / lower treble, now I can use them with basically all my library, was wondering if the new W1 could be better?

What's your budget or desired sound?
My desired sound is a neutral-bright, airy, ethereal signature (like the Odin) with lower energy on the upper mids. It could also use a touch more sub-bass but not as aggressive as the LX.

I mean I’m no psychic but maybe hold out a bit.

More than a prototype then or you are a master of persuasion. In any case my curiosity is piqued.

Maybe checkout Monarch Mk2 or 64 Audio U12T? LX is divine, especially if driven properly with enough power (tightens up bass texture), but seems you have heard it?
