Here's a pic from Linfof's site in Japan of twin CHR-70 units.

Hi Mark,

Do you know if any of your European distributors are stocking the new CHR-70 yet?

Regards,
Ewan

Mark, any idea on the size of those? They look to be of similar size, tuning and nature to the CHR microTower.

Hi Ewan,

Blue Planet Acoustic (BPA) in Frankfurt has new CHR-70 stock (also Alpair 7 and Alpair 12).

Thorsten at BPA is handling enquires while Nick is away recovering from an operation (wishing him speedy recovery).

Also, talk to Wolfgang at Spectrum. I think he's stocking soon.

Cheers

Mark.

Hi Dave,
Nor sure. I'll ask Norio, see if he any details.

Mark.

Does anybody know if there's a plan for Markaudio speakers with a passive radiator?

Well, I just placed the order for the CHR-70s at CSS site. I look forward to giving them a listen. I plan on knocking up some sealed test boxes of about 1/3 ft^3 and comparing the sound using a 70s vintage SS rcvr, a SE tube amp and a PP tube amp. For voicing the top octave I will have to get her input though as I can hear nothing above 12.5k. Good thing there is not much music in that last octave.

Another question which is strictly a theoretical thing. I know that a lot of drivers are made with 4 ohm voice coils to get the most out of a solid state amplifier. Is it any harder (or easier) to make a good high performance driver with a 16 ohm voice coil?

Drivers have arrived. They look very nice. Probably won't get to them until after Christmas but I am chomping at the bit.

Ended up accidentally spreading my posts over two separate threads but just wanted to let you know that I got a set of CHR-70s and they look great. After Christmas I will get a chance to build a couple of test boxes and give them a go. Am anxious to get started but life so often interferes with the important stuff.
