For some time I’ve been dreaming of building a DIY version of what I imagine to be one of the best speakers ever made – The TDL Reference Standard ‘M’. While I’ve never heard the TDL RSTL myself, there are some who say they’ve owned 1000 speakers and of them all, the RSTL is the best. At this point I don’t have a lot of hope of finding a used pair and I’ve long enjoyed building speakers, so the answer was simple – build my own.
I have no illusions that my DIY version will approach the quality of the real thing as designed by John Wright. All I’m hoping for is to have a great time, learn a lot and have a speaker that sounds pretty darn good in its own right.
