I’d like to present my project of Jenzen
Accutons. I bought the speaker kit quite some time ago when mk II was
not released yet and finished it in autumn 2013, so that is the reason
why mk I is presented. I made cabinets “on knees” without help of
serious tools and it was challenging and slow (not a good idea and I do
not recommend to anybody do it in this way). Painting is ICLA hardened
polyurethan coating done by my skilled friend.
Mid-tweeter cabinets are mounted on small
spikes (also home made) embedded in bass cabinets . Crossover is part of
socket but not mounted upside down. Socket itself is easily detachable
and fixed on bass cabinet with four pegs.
And sound... Difficult to describe especially
when I cannot compare with other high-end speakers. I can compare only
with my old DYI and to be honest I’m not going to plug them in any
more. I’m sure that I would need certainly better room and amp to let
them show up full potential. So another room is going to be prepared
only for listening and new amp will come hopefully some day.
What is also interesting, how this high-end
audio equipment can change one’s point of view on different recordings.
Some recordings are so boring that will be hardly listened again, some
are excellent even though the music doesn’t have to be the right cup of
Thank you for your design and I wish you lot
of success. Best regards, Jara (Czech Republic)
