No pictures exist. They really need the copper Alpair7. The upcoming Alpair 7 shortage has me holding the (well matched) pair originally set aside for these for a future client.

Chris will be getting a single for his dMar-Ken7 Centre which we can use for a photo shoot, I REALLY like the look, and if i had to live with just one set of speakers*, this would be the one.

*(Fortunately i don't, Fonken & uFonken would be runner's up, all of coutse with eN drivers)

Here is the (poor) teaser of the bamboo (the only set of uFonkenSE in existence -- still gotta do the drivers for these).

Click the image to open in full size.

jrn: uFonken have FF85 in them, FE127 would be in FonkenPrime (or variation) or in mFonken)

Chris,

Didn't Don (the Doorman) recently post a picture of his latest speaker? I think that it's one of those Mar'd speakers.

Best Regards,
Terry

As requested by the OP.

"Everybody" likes the "Hi-Tweek Black Box Nearfield Monitors."

They sound pretty nice, but unfortunately there's only one pair in existance.

Best Regards,
TerryO

Jeez dave,

Keeping up with the designs on your site is worse than memorizing the Periodic Tables!

They are nice though.

Best Regards,
Terry

Whilst it's on topic, I'll nominate the CHR-Ken's as my favourite speaker!

They really are astonishing - if the Alpair 7 Mar-Ken's are similar but better, I can easily believe they'd be the best small speakers money can buy.

I have in my posession, plans for a speaker that is believed by some, to be able to topple the CHR-Kens from their pedestal.

Reading your statement regarding the Alpair 7 Mar-Ken as the best small speaker money can buy, you may well be correct, as the "Hi-Tweek Black Box Nearfield Monitors" are not for sale.


Best Regards,
TerryO

TeaBag has some 1147s for sale... i could take them a level higher than TO's (mind you TO could bring his drivers to diyFEST and we could continue the tradition of diy event upgrades).

Fostex FE126eN in a small folded Voigt pipe, backed with stereo THs (XO 80Hz).

They play anything I like, up to pretty loud (when-parents-are-out guitar practice levels), but still have more than enough detail for some serious listening.
