Default Best-looking fullrange driver

Hi!

What fullrange driver do you think looks best?
I think the Fostex Sigma models look pretty cool. And ofcourse CSS EL70

But which driver sounds the best?
I've seen lots of drivers that look great but sound horrible.
After all .... it's all about sound.

You like the looks of your EL70. This one is even prettier.

That's a nice one, dave!
I'd like to know the differences between enabled and non-enabled, could you possibly tell me that in email?

Looks and sound: Feastrex D9nf. I am haunted by how beautiful they sounded (at Phil Townsend's) but they are forever out of reach of my budget, because the FE206E can be about 85% as good, sound-wise.

To quote someone else "this is a whole 'nuther driver".

I have a pair of treated & untreated in the same mMar-Kel boxes for anyone that wants to come by and compare.

It is possible to say what is happening (greater downward dynamic range), but you have to hear to Grok what it really means.
