Default Buying Jordans in the UK?

Is there an easy way of doing this?

I want a pair of JX92s, no way to make an order on the Jordan site and no reply to an email sent weeks ago.

Are they not interested in small orders?

Things have gone pear-shaped with Jordan units ever since T. J. sold up. The new owners have been moving manufacturing facilities to various places, as I understand it, with questionable success, and the drivers manufactured since then have met with a mixed reception in some quarters.

FWIW, may I point you toward the Mark Audio units? The Alpair10 should be a good alternative, and MA also appear to be taking the concepts used in the Jordan drivers to the next level. Plus, you should actually be able to get hold of a pair reasonably easily, which is more than can be said for the old Jordan drivers at present. Just a suggestion. http://markaudio.com/

I'll second the MArk Audio suggestion.

We do seem to be missing some distributers in the UK, the importing option is a pain. Are European distributers easier to deal with in regards to import duty, postal costs, import tax, delivery charge to pick up point tax, etc etc oh VAT forgot that.
misspelt charge!

Typical UK really.

Depends on who you buy from / what you're buying really mate. What I do know is that I will never give Wilmslow Audio any business at all.

Certainly an option (assuming they have any in stock).

Personally, I'd still be inclined toward the Mark Audio drivers -prices are very reasonable compared to a lot, & in applied technology, they're supposed to be a step beyond the Jordans, and, one presumes, the Bandors also.

I can assure you that you will get excellent service and a quick response from either Mark or Chris at Mark Audio. Since there is currently no stocking supplier in the UK a direct sale from Hong Kong would be the way to go.

Hi John and Marce,

There are 2 Markaudio dealers in Germany, 1 in Holland and another in Italy, all English speaking. They already supply other countries in Europe so they should be able to help.

We've been busy developing our website trying to make it easier for audio builders world-wide to get support. It's still work in progress so contact me if you having any difficulties.

You can check with us by using the contacts section on our site.

Details are on: www.markaudio.com

Thanks

Chris

Default Tang-Band

Another option (and quite viable indeed) is the Tang-Band 4" full range Titanium cone driver. The compare quite favorably to Ted Jordans earlier stuff, and they are cheaper and IN STOCK at Parts Express.
