I was also thinking DIY build, however Lindisfarne and Tom6897 may be partially correct.
This looks like the tweeter,
and this looks like the woofer,
Thanks to all for your thoughts ... funny thing is Im not in the market for speakers
Im very happy with mine from the Jurassic period ... a pair of NHT 3.3s for 2 channel and 5 Von Schweirkert VR4.5s for the home theater
At 64 years Ive learn to trust my ears ... what I hear ... before I trust my eyes ... What I read
Some how I was following links and clicked on that video out of chance ... I was immediately struck by the POP in the drums and attributed it to the ribbon speakers
I didnt think all that extra equipment in the room .. the foam in the corners or shooting the video from a I Phone enhanced anything .. yet I was immediately drawn to it
I bought the album the other day from Amazon and noticed it said ... IMPORTED
Could it be that the IMPORTED albums are mastered that much better ...
DIY speakers ... wouldnt that be a hoot .. I didnt notice any tubes or vinyl in the video and I think the amps are DIY Nelson Pass clones .. so I gave the speakers the credit for my attraction
Quick follow up .. the CD just came in and I tossed it in the computer to compare it to the Youtube video from the net .. wasnt even close .. the CD sounded dull and lifeless compared to the Youtube video
Hard to make sense of .. the Youtube video sounds so much better than the CD in my computer and they are both playing through the same POS! Dell speakers
The issue with the Youtube video I think is when ever you shoot a video from a I Phone or small point and shoot camera .. the tiny mic placed in the big flat surface of the phone or camera acts like a small tweeter in a large baffle and suffers from diffraction off the big flat surface
This tends to make voices sound a bit hollow
Its getting late and I think I will go chase my wife around ... only problem is at 64 years old ... when I catch her I usually forget what I wanted her for
