Default where can I listen to a pair?

Hi, I'm very interested in a pair of alpair 7 speakers (most likely in a pensil cabinet).

Where might I be able to listen to a pair of these drivers (in the Greater Toronto Area) ?

I tried the CHR-70 Gen 3 in a small bookshelf speaker from Tony (Musik007) in the TwinAudio sub-forum. The speaker cabinet is the Birch Ply Till70 with a slot port in the bottom of the baffle. I also have Gen 1 in Lotus cabinets, so I can't really compare apples to apples, but the striking difference is the Gen 3 have very clear life-like vocals. Yet I never perceived any deficiencies in the Gen 1, all I can say is very well done Mark!

Ian,

Importing wooden based products need special custom clearance? Did you experienced importing issues of wooden products?

ttan98,

I originally asked Tony for the maple cabinet similar to Osscar's above, but Tony said the maple would not make it into Australia, he suggested the birch ply instead. I checked Australian customs and he was correct, it seems plywood is considered treated or manufactured and it is allowed into the country.
