Just a "heads-up" for those interested:

Default FE206ES-R in Europe

Hi there,

I'll try to get some drivers from Fostex for the European market and hopefully hold the Madisound price (after tax & customs). The German distributor is informed and I keep you updated.

Regards
Thorsten

Thorsten,

Thanks for your effort, I'd already like to order a pair!

That's two of us. Incidentally, is it me or does this thing look reminiscent of the original 208Sigma with a magnet of truely epic proportions added? It certainly doesn't look like it shares a single component with the standard FE206E. I've been looking forward to this. I feel in need of a MONSTER BIB box or ML TQWT... Oh yes indeed.

Best
Scott

I thought EXACTLY the same thing when I posted this.. just wanted to see if anyone else picked up on it (..of course the diaphram material is quite different - along with the magnet.) I think however that the frame IS the same (along with the surround - though the spider is probably quite different).

It be nice if it was as "flat" (freq. response) as the 166 ESR, but I'm not holding my breath on this one.

Nice to know I'm not imagining things;-) I reckon you're right about the frame. The rest? I dare say we'll find out soon. Whilst I too am sure the response won't be as flat as the 166ES-R, it should still be worth waiting for. Fingers crossed!

Hmm. Odd response. Not bad, but I agree with the notion that there must be a reason for producing a driver with a response like this. Still a decent filter would sort that, or it could be tamed with other methods. I still want a pair. Sort of now-ish. ;-) If you don't indulge yourself in this life, no-one else will!

Hey -one thought: those brass rings Fostex produce (massively over-priced, but they work, and they look fantastic!) for the FE208ESigma: anyone reckon they'll fit this beast? Looks like it to me...

(Oh happy days... ;-)

Default Brass rings

Hi,

these rings are overpriced for sure! A local craftsman might assemble them for much less?! But they will fit to FE206ES-R. Both have the same dimensions.

Thorsten

It looks like a FE208 Super or FE208S - same thing with a few updates.
I am still awaiting a FE208SS remake.
