    The only thing Kenji and I agreed upon is a Walnut zebra high gloss cabinet finish. He did a pair of 4307's for me that kick ass. I am sure the L 100 will come back just the same

    Hey, worked for JBL Pro for 25 years outfitting recording studios. For what it's worth my favorite all time speaker is the Altec Lansing Model 19

    Nice! Do you find that they have too much midrange? Hard to tell listening to a compressed YouTube signal.

    Nice! Of course I would have to hear them in person but I like what he's been doing to these vintage JBL C38 Barons.

    OK, haven't heard that speaker, will have to check it out. I thought Kenji had modified a pair but will have to search. He did do a nice job on these Altec's (based on the YouTube video):

    I'm a bit overwhelmed by the polished rings around the D130 woofers and the gold 075s. I'm sure they are beautifully done but, as the lifelong owner of a pair of 030s in C35 cabinets, I question how good they'll sound in the smaller box given the bass output of which the D130 is capable even in a larger box. I understand this is Japan and most housing is spatially challenged, and that this is more about the bling than the sound. Looks more like something you'd see from a Russian Ebay auction than what we're used to seeing from Kenji, but then Russia may be the market he's appealing to with this stuff. :dunno:

    I looked on that site and can't see exactly what they do. Just cosmetic alterations and random driver changes? Where is the test data?

    Sure, the L100 list for $325 each in 1970, which is somewhere in the rough vicinity of $2k today.
    The new L100 is about $2k each..

    Ah! I didn't catch the "each"!

    Not complaining about price, just got confused.

    I like the Big Mac's on the shelf behind the speakers. Plenty of juice for just about anything :)
