There are those who would probably arrange it to get their hands on your system.

Nice. I can't help but think an 'regular' (ha!) FE128ESigma option might be a trifle more accessable than the limited edition ES-Rs, but I bet in the nearfield, on small / close miked acoustic material, these will make some enjoyable noises.

my personal system will be strictly NFS...

yes indeed, I wish too that fostex would come out with an inbetween model for the 126e-138es-r. somewhere around the 138EZ. what the 138ES-R says about fostex's future lineup is really anyone's guess.

that said, dave is filling that niche delightfully with the FE126eN at the moment.

It's very important to keep the corn under control, otherwise the organic distortion will become inconsolable.

I get a real chuckle reading babelfish translated Japanese amp projects, especially after consuming a couple of wobbly pops.

Not what you'd exactly call hand-down-the-back-of-the-sofa-pricing. That's enough to prompt this kind of reaction:

Yeah if only madisound will offer them. Anyone from madisound on here listening? Come on guys we need these in north america so ron clark and or dave can come up with a brilliant cabinet for them.
My only complaint other than cost (not like we thought they were gonna give 'em away), I'll probably have to forget about driving them with my new found 45 fetish. I'm guessing they'll be between 90 - 92db., hoping for 93 - 94db, I know wishful thinking but so were (are), these driver's. Good thing I hung onto my humbled, 166es-r's, even if I'm pushing it on a diet of 45's with 'em.
Just look what you guys did to me! I'm obsessively checking here, madisound, solen and eifl for news.
Scottmoose how'd you get that picture of me? Just you wait till my management hears about that!
Blumenco thanks for the heads up!

If there's a chance of getting some T/S parameters and a rough IB FR curve, I'm sure Dave or Ron could come up with something good for it anyway.
