    Master Cabinet builder available here.

    Ever want to make a dream come true? This gentleman could help that.
    Highly recommended by me in every way. My Paragon turned out better than a factory unit for sure. Absolutely beautiful workmanship.
    This man creates heirlooms and dreams come true for us speaker lovers. My Paragon is truly a work of art imo.

    For sure Rusty
    When the cabinet arrived I was blown away by the quality. He truly puts his heart into each cabinet. It was so well built I couldn't be happier. Taken care of it will last many lifetimes. Thats if we have audio in the future....lol.....who knows.
    He even bakes the horns in his oven to achieve the perfect wrinkle effect. The horn were perfect beyond expectations. I'd be surprised if they were any better or even this good from JBL in the day.
    The cabinet looks incredible in my living room. I couldn't resist the mahogany one.

    Something tells me he's building them with more care than the factory did originally. Is yours French Polish or Oil finished?

    Well I'm not sure which one those names would be. Mine seems to be finished with a lacquer type coating I think. It's shiny and hard to the touch. Not super deep but defiantly not just veneer on it own.

    looks beautiful! Are you comfortable sharing the cost? I assume it is more expensive than the vintage Paragons you can find online?

    In 2017 I pad 9200 Euro's. That included the horns and shipping. The shipping was 1400 Euro alone. So the box and horns were 7800Euro
    They were shipped Air freight too. You can see the way he ships them in his site pics. Even that was impressive the way he had them securely crated up. No damage at all. He knows what he's doing.

    I wish he was local. Shipping a big heavy cabinet has gotten way too expensive and you always "take a chance."

    Yes I was concerned as well. Such a big and important item to me. But his crates were perfect. He packs them extremely well. I see he still has his site up. This guy is a master cabinet maker for sure. This speaker has a special sentiment attached to it. It was built as a tribute to my late Son. It's crazy how such a odd design can sound so good. We use it for TV sound a fair bit....lol And music of course. It is time aligned to the room with the McIntosh room correction unit MEM220https://www.mcintoshlabs.com/products/room-correction/MEN220
