It appears as though they just haven't finished updating the site yet. From what they have so far..


"Audio Nirvana 'Classic 8 Cast Frame'
($228/pr plus shipping)"


"In addition to our regular models, we are now introducing a revolutionary new speaker......the Audio Nirvana 'Classic Series'.

A full-range speaker that uses no whizzer cone or phase plug and yet still reaches 20,000 hz.

A special proprietary design makes this possible."


"New technology has also allowed us to design--for the first time in history--a true full-range speaker WITHOUT a whizzer cone or phase plug. Similar in appearance to the legendary Western Electric and Altec 755A, our speaker exceeds the 12,500 hz limits of this great speaker. Our 'Classic 8', with ferrite magnet, is available now and we intend to expand the model line as soon as possible. No, it's not as good as our Super 8 Alnico or Super 8 Neodymium, but it's better than any other 8 inch full-range on the market."


"The 'Classic' series does not require a whizzer cone or phase plug."


"The Audio Nirvana 'Classic 8 Cast Frame' ($228/pr) has a frequency response from 42 hz to almost 20,000 hz. You can expect at least 98 db efficiency in any of our cabinets. It handles 30 watts continuous RMS (normal listening level will be about 1/10 watt). Impedance is 8 ohms. Voice coil is 1.4 inches (35.5mm). Magnet weight is 3.2 lbs. Total weight is 9 lbs. The cone is made of paper. The surround is accordion style and made of treated cloth. The dust cap is a specially coated fabric material. The frame is cast aluminum."

Yeah it doesn't work yet. Someone must be working on the site as we speak.

It didn't work when I posted it. I just put it there for when it does or might work in the near future.
I probably shouldn't have done that. Apologies for the confusion.
