    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.

    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.

    Eccentric? Yes. But, hardly a "jerk" or hack". Do some reading. Here's a good start, in Gizmo's own words, noting the tube crossover theory:

    Of all the speakers on my "must hear before I die" list, these are at the top. Atleast the original panels will be included.
