Looks like a speaker!

How much money and time did you spend on it? What drivers? How many? Enclosure? Xover?

Hi ranjeetrain, #1 just about 12k - #2 always upgrading - #3 no drivers these are electrostatic speakers they use 9x46 inch panels this model as 8 panels - this model as 2 enclosures one with 6 panels and one with 2 - #4 these speakers have no xovers BUT they do have interfaces.

PS: The smaller model is my own modified 1+1s these are 14x94x3 inches 200 pounds they have only 2 - 9x46 inch panels stacked.

PS: More photos on my Flickr galery - - -

Re: What is the best speaker that you have ever heard ?????

This looks like a 'modified' [double stacked] Sound Labs;
Probably this is a 'custom' Electrostatic Speaker - Amps used ?
The Wolcott Audio "Presence" Monoblock Tube Amplifier ??
Some details would be appreciated;

Like it say's on the post, this is a DIY Acoustat Spectra 8800 electrostatic speaker with 8 double stacked 9x46 inch panels, the amplifier is a highly modified Plinius SA-250MK1V - the preamps are Promitheus signature double c core - the cd player is a highly modified Ayon CD-1 with Burson amps and 6H30 tubes - there are also 2 JL Audio F-112 subwoofers in a very large room.

This is one of my all time favourite speakers.
Did you like them ?
Nice pics on your link.
I also like the way in which you make them - good strong frame etc.
Are these speakers commercially available ?
Configuration ?
Cost ?
Thanks..

Have you used this Pre ?

I have been trying to source a piece forever, but the company is difficult to deal with.

Can you pen a few words about the sound ?
Shall be appreciated...

Thanks;

Analysis Audio Omicron Speaker | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Have you heard these ?
I went to Tassos's house to listen to them;
In Athens i.e. [Greece]
I would like to know what you think of the product / sound etc.
That will give me an idea of what your speaker sounds like...
I also heard them in Munich with Technical Brain Amplification [Japan]
