Choke. Wish I was in such a position. IAs you're feeling rich, how about these AlNiCo Supravox units? http://www.supravox.fr/anglais/haut_...s/215_2000.htm

If you're not feeling quite high-end flush, Fostex are a good bet.

The SUpravox looks really nice! 99db are very sensitive!

Indeed. If I had £2,000 to blow on a pair of drivers, those would be what I'd spend it on. Anything with 8lbs of AlNiCo bolted to the back gets my attention.

At slightly less rarified levels, of the Fostex drivers, the FE168ESigma, FE208ESigma (wide-band, rather than FR), or Dave's modified units would be my port of call.

I did. We have been having what passes for a blizzard here and my office is barely heated, so i've been getting a bit behind on my email. Upstairs where i use my iBook/internet appliance it is cosy & warm.
