Trevor wanted a pair of Supercharged SongTowers in medium curly cherry.

We had a nice batch of cherry, so we did our thing. Here are the results...



And a close-up...



Happy listening Trevor!

Don wanted a home theater setup based around the SoundScape 8's. He looked at a lot of veneers and settled on African Bubinga.

Don also requested a number of custom changes to our basic designs. He wanted chamfered edges rather than our typical roundover. He wanted the drivers centered rather than our normal offset placement. He lowered the binding post position on the rear of the Veracity ST's. He opted for veneer plinths. And there were other changes as well.

Here are some photos of the resulting speakers...



For the center channel, Don chose the SoundScape 8C center and also had a small stand built to angle the speaker toward his listening position. Here's a photo...



For surrounds, he opted for Veracity ST's. Since they would be rather close to the rear wall, he chose to have them front-ported. Here's a photo...



All in all, these speakers should provide the foundation for a pretty slick home theater set-up.

Happy listening Don!

Those plinths are sweet. And songtowers for surrounds?! Quite the setup and like always the bubinga is one of my favs.
