Yes, Jeff is very accommodating ..
The SHO-10 appears to be a prime example of what can be done with inexpensive, off the shelf parts. With the performance described by GTG attendees and at a $350 each price point, it seems to represent a great value. It may be unfair to compare it to the Triple-8's with a coaxial/CD driver that alone costs close to as much as an entire finished SHO-10. Add in the hand built xovers, bass drivers and a very heavy inert cabinet and you have a BOM that is over twice the sell price of the SHO-10. Again, I think that CHT is doing something interesting with their products and perhaps providing a wonderful illustration of the law of diminishing returns in the subjective audio world.
For my part, I have always believed in quality components and have been willing to pay more for perceived quality and value. I would not want to have to validate those perceptions in a true DBT environment as the results might expose my bias and a poor vetting process
