I've sent an e-mail but never got a response. Must be the Holidays.
Thanks and Merry Christmas,
Well, the process wasn’t all roses. I was originally quoted 3-4 weeks for the L, R +C. It was 8 weeks till I got the first shipment (L+R). To be fair on Eric, I did change the order after 2 weeks as I wanted the upgrade on the caps. The center is now 10 weeks and counting. I did order the grills but have not received them either as Eric had told me he made them in batches, well, ok no biggie.
Eric was easy to work with, well; I did my homework before hand so I knew what I wanted bar the cap upgrade. I ordered the stock black satin Pendragon set. (Btw they are rear ported and have the standard rear connects, no bi amp – I used banana plugs for my set up)
When the L+R arrived they were very well packaged. Each surface of the speaker being covered by a layer of +/- 2 inch polystyrene inside the box. Getting them unpacked was easy too as you just split the box in 2 pieces around the middle (it’s made that way). By feel they are about ~70 lbs each. (I need to weigh them). I would really suggest that you do a mock-up as these speakers are big. Really took some guys by surprise when they saw them. I didn’t care too much for the spikes that were supplied and would have liked to see a matching set of placement disks that go under the spikes included.
As for the finish, they are gorgeous. Really top notch.I can not emphasize this enough. I believe that Eric’s father was a carpenter and it looks like it rubbed off on him. If the reason for the shipping delay was to get them finished as nice as they are, then I really don’t mind the wait. As for price I will pm you if you wish but I believe the stock prices are on the web site. On communication , I'm pretty old school, I like to speak personally to people, so most of my comms were done by phone. Of course the confirmation etc was done via email. Always good to have something in writing now days.
I will follow up on my listening impressions.
