Is it possible to secure the assistance of an agent who would receive a pallet shipment to North America and split it to the various destinations?

Anybody near a port on the East Coast?

The WH4 has my interest.

I think they chose to go for the WH4, and the Iwata 250 won't happen at this point. The price of the WH4 is 200EUR(~265$) each.

Hello,

The classical "shoot out" of the European Triode Festival was this year 2010 devoted to horns and waveguides.

16 horns were brought by participants to ETF2010 for the contest.

Aside of the official shoot-out I could measure all the 16 horns in the same excellent conditions (a very large room with a very late first reflection).

You may find the link to the report I wrote at the bottom of ETF2010 "shoot out" page on the Triodefestival.com website:

European Triode Festival - ETF 2010 Shootout

A direct link to the report is:

Pictures taken before and during the shoot out can be seen at:

Best regards from Paris

Very interesting Jean-Michel. I doubt there has ever been such a collection of measured data over such a variety of flares and drivers before, especially not using the same test set up to give clear comparisons.

Congrats to all involved.

Definitely interesting. Were the shootouts purely subjective or a combination of measured results + subjective components?

Thanks for the pointer, I'll go check it again. I saw all the measurements but didn't see mention of subjective listening in the measurement pdf. And if it was based on measurements, I'm not sure how the klangfilm horns won.

No subjective stuff in the pdf, and reading the last couple of pages, the Klangfilms didn't do well at all.

Except they were proclaimed the "winner" in the shootout.

I didn't read the shootout page until now. Not much interested in other people's subjective opinions on stuff unless I'm actually there. More interested in what the pdf showed as tastes vary a lot. I mean how else can you account for people liking things like tiny wideband drivers used on their own?
