WOW...nice work Ty...I really need to veneer my Fonken Floorstanders. I like the grill implementation...I have already lost one EL-70 from a flying wii controller during a heated round of wii sports...

Ty: very nice grain matching and finishing work - pretty decent sounding little driver too isn't she?

mrZ - those are actually ("Fonken") floorstanding tower for FE127E

Thanks!

If someone told me you could get this kind of sound from a three inch driver, I wouldn't believe them. To be honest, I still spend a lot of time staring at them in disbelief. It really is a pity Fostex discontinued this driver. They really don't have anything close as a replacement, do they? No FF85KN, is there?

We'll see. From the pictures, they've gone backwards, The dustcap doesn't look like it is on the end of the voice coil, and the surround from the Sigmas is MIA.

OTOH, the concerns that some of us had re the revised FE126E were unfounded after all, so who knows 'til we can actually try them out

Indeed. But in the case of the FE126En it was only suspect numbers people worried over.

Ty,

At least their is an upside. If you decide you need to replace them, the new cersion is better (hard to imagine eh?)

as I opined last year while we were awaiting the new WK series - "the proof is in the listening" - the new FF85WK are improved by no small measure
