Default MAOP batch 1 cones and caps

Hi Guys,
We've completed the first batch of MAOP cones, including the edge to cone sub-assembly. The boffins in Taiwan managed to fiddle around with their formulas to come up with a colour I've named "graphite" (any other suggestions?).

We have 25 pairs of soft white cones and 24 pairs of graphite cones, complete with matching caps. This is batch No.1 (see pics).

So far so good. All cone/edge sub assemblies have a static mass variance of +/- 0.07g, excellent for a coated cone.

Wil keep you posted on the next steps.

Cheers
Mark.

They look very good! How many cones didn't survive assembly? Only 2 graphite ones?

2 cones so far are NG's (no good) through this sub-assembly process. We will likely encounter more as we move each driver through the assembly process. All will depend on the skill of Taniguchi san, Kitagawa san, Evan Yu and Myself as they will each be built individually.

Thx
Mark.

The cones, especially the graphite ones look lovely. Very, very enticing. Profile looks very shallow also.

Bravo! Hope they sound great too.
