Hi Troels,

Thank you so much for all your support. I have now finished my beech wood CNO 2.5s and am very happy with the fantastic sound quality. We have been listening to them for two weeks now and the acoustics are really amazing.

I used beech plywood to make sure that the wood wouldn't start to deform after a few years with changing moisture. The beech surface is quite thick and the feet were cut from a solid beech wood block. So from the outside one cannot tell it is plywood.

The protective covers are held by neodymium magnets. Four magnets were placed under the wood surface of the speakers from the inside so that they are not visible. Four tiny ones are glued to the wood structure of the covers. And for the covers I asked my local coffee roaster for an old coffee bean bag.

The wood I got cut from my local carpenters because I didn't have the right tools / or experience.

The electronics are not as tidy as in your builds but I can live with it because they are not visible. And I stuffed a lot of filling fabric in the base of the case that the electronics cannot move, even if I decide to move and the speakers get carried around.

Again, thank you very much and greetings from Germany!!
