Don't like the volume knob,but I'm looking for a good one,as well for opinions and suggestions.
I will be happy to discuss whatever about headphones and stuff

finially finished the fireplace-fi. 41Hz Amp4 driving uFonken FF85K speakers. ancient dvd player and DAC1 for source and pre. god i hate the blue LED on the DAC1. since my finishing skills are minimal, i was going for an aged, patina finish on the speakers. BB sanded with 80grit, wood conditioner, dark walnut gel-stain, and tung-oil.

the final piece of my DIY speaker system.. the speakers

leftspeaker.jpg


this is my first go at woodwork, so its been a learning curve and a half.

The veneer went on well, and has been finished with danish oil and wax.

How do they sound? fast and dynamic, absolutly stunning with female vocals. The imaging is great, much much better than old KEF's.

edit - and the port is only stick out because i am messing with port lengths.

genuinely first ever attempt at woodwork. Veneer hides a multitude of sins.....



Ain't that the truth! It's all good as long as you can putty/sand/mask it so that it's flat enough for veneer to sit on top of (at least that's what experience has taught me)

Great build and very nice veneering.

it wasnt that hard to be honest, i bought an enormous 8' x 4' sheet of cherry paper backed. cut to half inch over sized. I made some homemade softener out of water and glycerin, this allowed me to wrap the whole speaker (except the tops) as the corners are 3/4" radius roundover.

I used the dry pva method, paint back of veneer with pva, paint the cabinet with pva, let it dry them just iron it on. It was tricky, but a forgiving method as you can iron it again if there are any bubbles etcs.
