Hi Guys,

Two colours available, Natural and Black. Will be posting more info, data and detail in the coming days.

Cheers

Mark.

Ooh! I really like the look of the black ones! I know others will ask that know more than I but since I'm the first one to respond, what are the specs like in relation to the Gen 1?

I think of these, the CHP70.3 (i'm going to insist on calling it a Gen 3, as the EL70 was the 1st Gen 2), as evolved from a cross between the CHP70 and the EL70. And now with both cone colours.

CHP70.3 BW is going to be very interesting too.

Mark, you're a very bad boy teasing us like that - "when?"

Personally I prefer the natural / buff coloured cone.

+2 on the Gen.3 nomenclature, to reflect the overall design level rather than the numeric generation of the drive unit itself.

Hi Chaps,
See yur point but being fair to Bob (CSS), I did do things differently on the EL-70 so the driver labels on the new CHP will say "Gen 2".

Hi Chris,
Ummmmmmmmph......can't blame me tooo much for a little bit of carrot dangling.

Just luvvvvvv to tweeeeek drivers sooooo much.

Cheers

Mark.

What does the motor look like? (not visually, design-wise)
