Yup, I put the speakers together myself and it was a ton of work. It took me about 5 months to get it all together, life tended to get in the way. The only thing I didn’t do was build the crossover, my soldering skills were only beginner level at the start of the project and I didn’t want to risk ruining any of the components since COVID has put huge delays on replacement parts. I’m happy to say my soldering has gotten much better after wiring up everything. The Achromat was from my old Thorens table. I do prefer it over the stock mat, but I haven’t compared it to anything else.
