that plywood kind of blends in pretty good with the walnut veneer, don't you think ? :(
"Harvey “Gizmo” Rosenberg was my uncle and a legend in the audio industry. He died suddenly at age 59 on July 16, 2001 after suffering a massive heart attack while on a business trip in Illinois."
.....he probably finally realized what he had done to those Tannoy's.
Goes to show, there is such a thing as being TOO smart and/or eccentric.
Usually right, but sometimes not entirely factually correct.

What a jerk. I hate seeing beatiful vintage gear ruined for the rest of us by hacks.

I've had the Meta-gizmo site bookmarked for a few years. Rosenberg was an interesting character to say the least. I'm in the "once you buy it...it's yours to do whatever you want" camp.

I ALWAYS use an ass-gasket. Never hover because of splash down and back splatter. I also float landing pad made from TP for a soft landing to avoid the above. One can never be too cautious when dealing with the general public. - RonP
Sounds like a great project for someone. Hmmm!
In the beginning, all knowledge was new!

I'd like to burn those with a flamethrower.
Of all the speakers on my "must hear before I die" list, these are at the top. Atleast the original panels will be included.
Make it Funky! :)
