    If the Bordeaux might be the' 'best' speakers, could they be the "Latours" or the "Moutons"; but then what would you call the Anthologies?

    Certainly more interesting than naming speakers after numbers and letters (AR3, B652s, Elac B6 etc......)

    What would you call the Tritrix? Great value, not as refined as the Anthologies but accessible to all budgets? "The Cotes"?

    Big box Cheap speakers could be the "Ordinaires"!

    Hi Geoff,

    Actually, the Anthology's were named after a red blend wine that is a favorite of ours from Conn Creek vineyard in Napa. It's a spectacular wine if you enjoy fine wines.

    HA! Being the "best" is always subjective and will vary depending on each individuals listening tastes. Curt and I feel this is the "best sounding" design we've collaborated on so far. Just like fine wine, some will love it, others may not.

      We don't drink much Napa Valley here as it's quite expensive, but brought back a Clos du Val Merlot which we bought at the vineyard, kept for a few years and it was great.

      Perhaps in Australia we could call the Bordeaux the "Warras" or "The Margarets" after our two top growing areas for Cabernet and Merlot: Coonawarra and Margaret River?

      Not "Grange" as it's Barossa Valley Shiraz (Syrah) based and it's way overpriced, which certainly does not apply to your designs!

      Not sure what I could call the Slapshots or Tritrix, though. Both are great value for the quality,

      Happy listening

      Geoff.

          I'm the hold up. I still need to finish the top cabinet module drawing and get it turned into a CAD drawing. The bass bin CAD drawing is done. I have the BOM, crossover etc. so we're not far away from being ready to publish. The design will be listed on Curt's website and everything will be available for down load. PM me with your email address and I'll send you what I have so far if you want to get started.

          Thanks for your interest! We appreciate it!
