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.
