Looks like a desktop version of JBL Everest speakers.

Hi all.
The last part of the video is when I realized that it was a desktop speaker.
Look like the foot print is not that small.
However, I have to admit that they are nice looking.

These next speakers are made in Taiwan. They sound amazing. My wife would go absolutely ballistic if I told her I wanted a pair.

Hi all.
The link didn't work for me either.
I use Yahoo.
I'm really curious to see that video.

Thanks Nick.
Your link worked.

Made in Taiwan according to mresseguie.
With my experience with 20 years of importation from Taiwan and China.
(Taïwan = Kuang Lin Industries and Farseeing Main land China)
I know that Made in Taiwan products are much better than Made in China.
Of course there are exceptions....
Nice looking, anyone heard them ?

Thank you, Nick!

I just now opened Nick’s link on my cell using Safari. It’s possible you’re having difficulty opening my link because it’s in Mandarin Chinese. Their website used to be able to toggle between Mandarin and English. However, the English page always lacked a lot of details which were present in Mandarin. It makes sense since their target audience is Chinese.

The link is to LALS-Audio.com. They specialize in high efficiency two-way speakers with wood waveguides and either 12” or 15” paper woofers. I’ve got a Taiwanese buddy who owns the Neo-Classical 12” model. Holy shit, but they’re fantastic. The first time I met him, I ended up staying for eight hours of nearly uninterrupted audio - including the (I think) 25th anniversary Blue-ray disc of Les Miserables. I was mesmerized. Zero listening fatigue if you can believe it.

As good as his speakers are, he regularly encourages me to hurry up and move back to Taiwan because he’s dying to hear my Daedalus Apollos.  :drool:

I'm into certain JBLs, or at least their drivers. I have one pair that is 99db (well my only JBL pair out of the speakers I have).

I got a real kick out of the minis. I've heard the real thing before, was a meh for me. Who knows maybe it was the electronics, I'm not sure.
