Default RAAL 140-15D Group Buy

I am interested in buying a pair of these tweeters. The retail is a little hard to swallow, but the price drops to $169 euro each if you buy 10 or more...this means if five people want two tweeters we would have a group buy. There are further price breaks at 20 and 50, but they are not as significant.

I am putting the feelers out to see what kind of interest there is.

Thanks,

C

How is this group buy going? I've done some research on this driver, and am very interested. That price is great too!

Default Well,

you two are the first 2 interested. I kind of gave up after no one replied, but the price is really good. I don't think being in Germany is a problem. I will most likely see Alex of RAAL at Burning Amp this coming weekend and will discuss my idea with him.

Thadman - I don't know what AIM is.

Thanks!

Maybe here in Europe we have more chance to get better prices?

I emailed to RAAL today.

What midrange are you guys planning on using with this ribbon? The Accuton C173N-T6-90 looks very interesting. High sensitivity, high output, high resolution, super low distortion of all types (even at 105dB+, measured over on HTguide.com). The best midrange I'm aware of...the only downside is the price. $460/each!!! Would you guys be interested in doing a group buy on this driver also?

Default Yeah,

I would love to buy a pair or two of those. The Visaton Ti-100 is nice as well, and far cheaper. It isn't as efficient, but also has extremely low distortion from 100-1.6k.

I don't know about a group buy on the Accuton/Theil units. In the US, Madisound is the only game in town besides Zalytron, and I think Zalytron buys them from Madisound. Maybe one of the guys in Europe can check with them direct?

As far as getting better prices in Europe, my price sheet is in Euro's.

I have one guy who joins us and two are interested. But I told them it`s 169$ because I read "$169", now I read "$169 euro".
One guy asked for the additional shipping costs.
I intend to use the RAAL with FAL Flat C, which also has 95dB and is only 3" wide. If I don`t get it for a reasonable price here in Germany I build a three-way with Veravox 7X and Ciare HW321.

Default el 'Ol

I forgot about the shipping. It has been a while since I shipped anything from the US to Germany. I can look into it.

Thanks,
