Default Alpair 12 test in MJ Magazine, Japan

Hi guys,
MJ audio Magazine have just published a in-depth test and comprehensive review of the Alpair 12. Author Ozawa Takahisa compared the Alpair 12 with 2 well known Japanese Full Rangers, Diatone's P-610DB and Daito's Voice DS-16F.

MJ Magazine and Takahisa kindly agreed to the release of an English translation by Yasushi Matsumoto who's a member of this forum. All credit to Matsumoto given the challenge of accurately translating the technical terms.

Here's the link to the introduction:

Japanese Alpair 12 Review Now Available | Markaudio

Here's the link to the English PDF download:

Cheers

Mark.

Congrats, I can hardly wait to hear them - once there are a few enclosure designs from which to chose

Can't wait to get my hands on a pair of these bad boys.

that was sarcasm, of course, I'm aware of several designs already, I just need to get back to my workbench to try my favorite one - if I remember how to slap a box together, the kitchen / home reno has taken the better part of 3 months, and isn't finished yet

it could well have been faster to just build a whole new house - but with natural gas into the building, "lightning" can be dangerous

No problem opening the article. Wish more MJ articles were translated into English... This looks like a very interesting driver, off-axis performance looked very good.

I'm sure it's Mac not liking a Windows thing. Would be cool to read as I'm really excited about this driver as well as the double secret one being worked on by Dave S!

Hi ejfud,
We're a all MAC office at Markaudio, downloads working fine. Are you sure your browser is the latest. Assuming you're using Safari 4.0.4? Check you browser preferences, see if you've got anything blocking the download.

If still not working, email - sales@markaudio.com - ask Chris to send you a copy. I think the PDF file is just under 2 megs.

Cheers

Mark.
