These are great speakers. I still own a pair that I no longer use, since I recently acquired a pair of Monitor Audio Silver 100s. I personally met Dave Fokos and bought the speakers and probably the speaker stands directly from him. Just happened that his manufacturing facility located in Billerica MA, a town north of Boston MA, was next door where I used to live and work in the early 90s. Ilke the article in your posting, he was basically a one-man shop, he used to outsource the cabinets to a local cabinet maker and then he'll assemble, test, process and ship the orders. If I recall, the speakers at the listening room were hooked to a Mark Levison No. 23. Like the marketing materials, he lent me a pair for a month for a try out and let me choose the cabinet finish, mine are light oak. He was ahead of his time since the internet didn't exist back then as it is now. Below is a pic of my set, notice the tweeter is different from your set.
