Default Aurum Cantus G2Si Ribbon Tweeter group buy

Hi there

Anyone interested in a group buy of Aurum Cantus G2Si tweeters? These are really stunning tweeters and I have located a company that is willing to sell them at $60 US each ($120 US per pair plus shipping from South Africa). The catch is that we are to buy at least 50 pairs at one time.

Just an update on the proposed group buy of Aurum Cantus G2Si tweeters. I negotiated a minimum order of thirty pairs with the company.

This is a very good tweeter. See the TJL project of Troels Graveson.

I could be interested in a pair or two if:

I knew how much they usually cost in the U.S.

I knew shipping charges to the U.S.

I knew of a link to an excellent 2 way project using these.

Sorry about the bad link! Here it is again. You might have to cut and paste it into your browser.

Also see Troels' comments about the tweeter and the TJL project here:

The tweeters retail for $89.95 in the USA at www.e-speakers.com and for more than 120 Euros each in Europe.

Shipping from South Africa is not expensive. I will get a definite quote on airmail shipping to the USA and report back.

Regards

Well, the efficiency of that system pretty much SUCKS doesn't it? What a waste, a 96db tweeter padded down to 80db.

Does anyone know of any tried and true systems of about 90db?

Hi there

Air mail shipping to Europe and USA is $50 per pair. Total price for one pair of G2Si tweeters - $120 + $50 = $170. That is less than the price for one tweeter without shipping in Europe!

So you say the price shipped to the U.S. from Africa is $170.

The price in the U.S. is $180 pair plus, say, $10 shipping.

So the savings is $20 per pair assuming that you could talk the dealer into free shipping.

Hardly much to get excited over, is it?

I think that this is a really good deal for the guys in Europe and not in the USA. The saving is about 50% for people living in Europe. Now that is a substantial saving!
