Hi Clark,

Forgot to mention.. system's not mine.. how I wish I has all those good stuff.. The owner of the sytem did a fantastic job on his Vinyl set-up as well.... The Micro-Seiki TT , Breuer Tonearm and cartridge were very well set-up and integrated with the amplification....

Awesome! I like to build with vertical and horizontal bracing. Are the plans for these cabinets available?

I was wondering --- What is the difference between the D5nf and the NF5ex? Performance and price?

Both sound very similar.. not surprising as the cone structure is the same.. what the D5nf can do the NF5EX does a little better.. As you in the US..For Prices, please check with Mr Kenji aka Fulken

Question phase plugs

I checked the eBay store and I noticed the drivers are pictured with a phase plug that looks gold in color and one that looks almost black. I like the gold colored one. How do you get the one you want? Also, what happened to the Feastrex listing on the vendor threads here?

Afaik the black is the urushi coated brass vs the vanilla brass plug.

Has anyone else noticed the new alpha "shingle cone" 5 inch models?
The main site says that from here forward all models will be phased into this single cone style design.
Kinda surpirsed there wasn't an announcement here!

From what I've experience with MA drivers this is definitely an exciting development.

Edit: single cone. SINGLE! My god my Japanified English is bad =P

The latest phase plugs are the gold plated brass phase plugs.. The earlierversion phase plugs were the black colour acrylic type.

Default Thanks, and disappointed.

I like the gold colored ones and I like the "whizzer" cone ones. If they are all going to the single cones, I won't be buying any.
