Speaking of which - an update. Fabric arrived. Ahead of schedule, as the gal I spoke with said it would be a couple of weeks to get the janus blue in to get it frome one dye lot.
I switched from my planned expo order to janus since they were out of blue in expo and didn't anticipate getting any more. As you can see the blue is a lighter shade than my old expo sample, and it doesn't have the texture that the expo has, but it will do:
I got the black in janus also:
Also arriving today was my banana plugs. I had bought some a while back but they and my hdmi cables disapeared in the flotsam and jetsom of my house. Oh well something to sell when they reappear. I went with these locking ones from speakerrepair.com (link)
The locking feature is kind of unnecessary, as the plugs rested pretty securely, but what the hell. Was recomended in a few threads around here. Kind of satisfying to install them.
In the last few days I have been trying to make it through CRT setup guides. I did manage to cobble together some ghetto speaker stands. They will be behind a fabric wall so aesthetics are immaterial. One part scrap mdf, some pvc pipes, sand and glue. It will do. I may spray paint them over the weekend.
