Mark is currently in hospital being treated for cancer, so he may not be able to reply very quickly. The MAOP units have been mostly sold in Japan; only a handful are outside that nation at the moment, so there are few user reports. If you search the Japanese audio forums, you may find some additional information.

One pair of those arrive casa chrisb this Wednesday - now I just have to muster the courage to man-handle them into an existing pair of stand mount boxes, and fire them up over the weekend. They will of course be stone cold stock, no break-in hours, etc, and my direct reference will be well tempered 7.2s with the full magic polka dot treatment in an entirely different enclosure, so the first couple of hundred hours will be an interesting ride.

You could accidentally install them in my bamboo Mar-ken's for the break-in period.

Tuning in the boxes Chris have is closer to optimum. 1st boxes he asked after were my bamboo boxes.

These drivers look absoulutly beautiful, like fresh frost on a smooth surface.

I believe that something like 12-25 pair of these exist to date... and almost all of those in Japan.

I have a pair arranged as soon as Mark returns. Thoroughly looking forward to them, although I am interested to hear of comparisons to eNabled versions.

Scott has the MOAP 10 (1 of 2 outside Japan or the factory). We (ie Chris) has the 7.
