no that is not a typo...

there seems to have been talk of a debut in the spring. drool.

terry has a pair of 208es he was going to put into a huge double walla walla wall of sound or something last time I talked to him. killer.

the es-r, with alnico magnet, ugggg. this hobby gets mighty expensive.

google it. use the translator to find out more. here is a photo.

the page of spi plaza seems to have a decent report of the show where it was introduced.

Blumenco, now why did you have to go and do this? I`m just getting my FE206ESR`s to sound the way I like `em to and you show up with these. But hey, I`m in the mortgage business and can help anyone who wants these with an equity loan or cash out refinance. If I get some additional business, maybe I can afford a pair or qualify for a loan myself.

lol !

The same goes for me !

I was just too proud of my 206esr ... and now those _____ make this beauty ! Too unfair !

I wish I'm no more student and have a few more thousand dollars to buy the new 400Alnico woofer that is too beautiful, a pair of these and a pair of T900

... dreaming ...

Modern classics!

Does anyone know if Fostex will be updating their current line of drivers soon... for us mortals? Last i recall, they came out with some really neat stuff before updating.

hummmm..., kinda hoping for something along the lines of fe103es-r or fe108es-r, fe108es III. a 4" or 4.5" special edition driver. Listening to the fe206es-r in the Dallas now. my fe166es-r still in the boxes. no time to build the enclosure

it certainly does not appear to be a cheap model;)

"As for FE208ES-R the super powerful outside magnetic type magnetic circuit which uses the large-sized alnico magnet of 3.1kg is loaded. In addition hybrid “new ES cone” of the new combination which has the rigidity which is superior and, the zinc die-cast frame and adoption etc of the radial paper making HP diaphragm become feature."

I wonder if Madisound will carry it.

Maybe someone from Madisound is passing through and can give us some info. IIRC the someone's name is Brian.

Wow, looks fantastic. As stated above, this could get pricey.
