Yep should be screws? Do your 7's look just like the ones on the Markaudio website?

Hi Dave and Gazza,

I found them in the box. My pencil 7 is slowly progressing.

Thanks,
Routhun

Hi Mark,

The CHP is directly related to CHR70 & EL70 (which is based on the ealier CHP). Not available here, i haven't actually heard them the CHP, but the other 2 & the A7 i have. The A7 should be more refined, , the CHP more robust.

Hi HPH,
I'm killing time in Melbourne airport waiting for the flight back to HK. So......
Differences:
CHP-70 - goes to 20kHz (Classic paper sound)
Alp-7 - goes to 30kHz. (detail, clarity and range)

Alp7 cone is more micro-resoncence sensitive than CHP. You'll hear more detail from the Alp7. However, its more demanding on source and amplification. Don't short change the Alp7 on the up-stream side of the system.

Merry Christmas,

Mark.

Hi Jul,
Yup. but I need 48 hours in a day. Gradually upgrading data availability. Hoping to launch a new Markaudio website by this late Jan.

Take a look at the Alpair 12's Japanese test review. Includes waterfall and distortion data stacked up against 2 respected Japan drivers. You'll get a good indication of the Alpair family performance.

Cheers

Mark.

Hi Mr.Dave & Mr.Mark,
Thanks you very much for your valuable infos. Since I have not a chance to listened them in pensil, FH-MK3,... can you please advice which one sound best (my system: Cayin A-88T,Oppo BDP-83SE, Rega P7, Graham Slee Gold V, Aurum Cantus Volla) as well as which cabinet I should build (I love horn speaker most).
Thanks
