The Duelund-Westminster Project is live on Positive Feedback Online in Issue 70!
As I mentioned in an earlier post, the article is huge with over 40 pages of text and 137 photographs. Editor Dave decided to break it up into two parts to make it a little more manageable to read on the website, and you can read Part 1 here and Part 2 here.
Here’s a few little snippets to whet your appetite:
“My first impressions during the early project phases were “Oh my God—what a difference!” and that is even more true of the completed project. In one word — breathtaking!”
“Song after song, album after album, my initial positive impressions of the Duelund CAST crossovers were continually reinforced, and over time I became even more impressed with their musical prowess and their remarkable ability to provide beyond state of the art sonics, musicality, and an emotional connection that just left me speechless.”
“For those of you who were not yet familiar with Duelund Coherent Audio, whether you are an enthusiast or a loudspeaker manufacturer, I hope that this article has given you a good introduction to the Duelund CAST capacitors, inductors, and resistors, as well as given you a sense of the rather dramatic performance improvement they can offer to audio reproduction.
In their quest for attaining audio perfection, Frederik Carøe and Magnus F. Pedersen, the principals of Duelund Coherent Audio, have accomplished something amazing and inspiring with their handcrafted Duelund CAST components, and I think that their friend and mentor, Steen Duelund, would be excited and proud to behold what they have accomplished. I certainly am in awe of what they have done with the Duelund CAST components!”
“It is truly hard to find the words to fully express what these Duelund components are capable of, in their sonic and musical prowess, and in the emotional power they unleash in the music. I suspect to fully understand what I’m talking about you’re going to want to feel the power of Duelund CAST components for yourself, for they are alive with the glory of music!
Whether you have a pair of Tannoy Westminster Royal SEs that you want to take to the next level, or perhaps Canterbury SEs, or another loudspeaker altogether, yes, yes, the Duelund CAST components are most highly recommended!
The Cast of the Duelund-WRSE Project
I would like to offer my sincerest thanks to everyone involved in making the Duelund-WRSE Project a reality, for without their contributions of materials, guidance, and encouragement, this remarkable project would not have been possible.
Frederik Carøe (Duelund Coherent Audio, Denmark): I would like to offer an immense “Thank you!” to Frederik Carøe for his immense support in providing the remarkable collection of Duelund Coherent Audio CAST capacitors, inductors, and resistors for The Project. Steen Duelund and The Doctor are smiling.
Mark Coles (Sablon Audio, England, UK): I would like to offer my sincerest thanks to Mark Coles for introducing me to Frederik, his many good ideas for rewiring the Westminsters, and contributing his amazing Panatela cables to The Project.
Dr. Paul Mills (Tannoy, Scotland, UK): I would like to thank Paul Mills for his patience in answering my many questions about the WRSE crossovers, about how best to proceed with various aspects of The Project, and for providing a pair of Tannoy autotransformers for use in The Project.
David Biancosino (Dave Biancosino, Answers in Art, Washington State, USA): Many thanks to my friend Dave for rolling up his sleeves and going into his woodshop to create the tone wood isolation bases from scratch used for the Duelund CAST external crossovers – totally awesome!
Pete Riggle (Pete Riggle Audio Engineering, Washington State, USA): Many thanks to Pete Riggle for helping me do the layout for a breadboard crossover to get the balling rolling, and to Stephaen Harrell for bringing over some fine victuals from the El Fat Cat Grill to support the effort! You guys are awesome!
Jeff Day (Positive Feedback Online, Washington State, USA): I guess I should add in yours truly, for contributing my pair of Tannoy Westminster Royal SE loudspeakers, for funding miscellaneous materials, and managing The Project to a successful conclusion!”

I hope you enjoy the Duelund-Westminster Project article, it really was a labor of love on the part of all those involved.
Oh, by the way, the Duelund-Westminster Project is not over yet … I’ll have some exciting developments to share with you in the future that I hinted at in the article!
