It may not be anywhere nearer to perfection, but it could look a lot more interesting... (I’m sorry, Devialets’ are just....*meh*...)  
Why are there so many wooden box speakers out there?
Seriously for a moment, now.... Wood and its’ variants as a enclosure is all well and good. With the advent of CNC/CAD-CAM/3D printing (no longer in infancy, noooo), ’boxes’ can be ’put up on the shelf’ ( to pun badly ) and other designs can be ...
