You guys are starting to make me wish I would have bought the Phil 2 when it first came out (I heard the prototype at Dennis'). :-(

I just couldn't get past the looks though.

The looks were, uh, special. But so was the price. I'm toying with the idea of bringing them back, but with the new OEM RAAL tweeter. That, together with the SB Acoustics woofer instead of the Scanspeak, with save a big chunk of change over the 3's, with no change in sonic quality above 31 Hz. But I would never be able to match the original $2,000 price because the cabinets would still have to be custom made. It would probably be more like $2600 - $2700.

Of course I completely understood the design goal was pure performance, not high WAF (or in my case, my own AF...lol). They were an absolute steal at $2k!

Fast forward to the present, I'm quite happy with my Soundfield Audio Monitor 1 (another 1 man/ small company offering huge audio bargains).

Perhaps one day I'll be a proud Phil owner, but due to job instability and changing priorities, all audio purchases have been put on hold. Where's that damn winning lottery ticket when you need it......lol.

Keep up the great work, Dennis.

PS - I have a friend that's interested in hearing Phils, so hopefully we can arrange a visit to Wehawken Studios in January. (I hope I remembered that name correctly )
