Default Audio Nirvana Full Range Speaker -Super 8 model

I am thinking of building a full range speaker, after doing some investigation on the net I came across this full range driver, Audio Nirvana sold by Commonsense audio.

Mr Dicks from Commonsense claimed that this model Super 8 out performed the Fostex FE206E and it is also cheaper. I wonder anyone has any experience with this speaker?

If so please explain your experience..

Commonsense would dictate that you should always question the objectivity of someone that's trying to sell you something.



Sorry, couldn't resist.

Default the audio nirvanas seem to be

similar to the Fostex at a lower price. Do a search on DIY and find out what others have said..

Nanook,

I did a search before and I did not find the areas of interest and my second search yielded some success, still those having some experience in this brand is some what limited.

Thanks for yr direction..

Default have a look here...

Without much searching I stumbled across this review :
www.tnt-audio.com/casse/t-speakers_e.html

nice write up on tnt about the Audio Nirvana 8, (not the Super). Has comments from Commonsense Audio:
Quote:
You may want to try the Super 8's eventually. They're even closer to Lowthers. And we're working on something new that I hope will work out and be even better.
Read the whole "review" and make your own judgement (if your biases are similar to Geoff Husband's)

That should learn you to eat the yellow snow!!

And it doesn't taste very good (or i'd expect, i've always heeded Frank's warning)

Default Dave and co. regarding yellow snow.

Mr. Zappa was indeed prophetic, and I'll take everyone else's word for it regarding the taste of yellow snow..

Dave can you email me please?

I hope the link to GH's "review" of the Audio Nirvana 8" is an idication of the quality. The last line of the manufacturer's response is pretty interesting..

TNT Review
========

Partnering AN 8" with T-amp is HI-FI on the cheap, it does not give a good impression of the DRiver eventhough it may sound OK.

Whether it sound better than Fostex FE206E is debatable unless a AB comparison is made...

Overall impression is the build quality of the unit is highly questionable(from the photo fromTNT), it needs to be bettter. But for the price no one will argue. If the quality improves comparable to Fostex, I think it will be very competitive even if the price maybe higher than what it is now. The Sound aspect is another issue...
