Default May delivery to Madisound

Hello Fellas,

Just letting everyone know that we are now 60% of the way to completing the latest production run for Madisound. Brian, Adam and the Madisound sales team have requested a complete set of all the latest models to be shipped this month. This will include the:

Alpair 10M(A) Gen.3 (metal cone with new super light coil and arrestor)
Alpair 10P(A) Gen.1 (paper cone with super-iight power-train and arrestor)
All other models are also included in the inventory.

We hope to have the Madisound consignment on the ocean by the third week of this month.

Please note the 10P's will be limited supply. Those wanting this extended range driver (Provisional data: Fo=46Hz, range to 25-kHz, SPL=89.6). Note the 10P maintains the long stroke power-train design. Xmax with be limited to 7-mm (1 way in gap) be its Arrestor. Guys interested in this driver should consider earlier ordering.

Thanks
Mark.

Hi Guys,
Apologies its a long wait, but its worth it. All the Madisound consignment (and I do mean ALL) are being personally assembled by Jeff Taniguchi san, Kitagawa San and Evan Yu. This includes the entry level CHR and CHP drivers, they are also being looked after by these guys. No drivers are being mass assembled by "kiddies".

Thx
Mark.

Default Shipping this week

Hi Guys,
Letting you know that we are shipping the latest batch of drivers from our workshops later today. They will arrive at Madisound's shipping agent's Hong Kong warehouse by this Thursday/Friday. They'll be loading onto a ship next week. Expected arrival at Madisound is late June.

Apologies for the long time its taken to build this batch. With me being out of action due to my recent health challenge (getting much better), we've been down on hands to assemble drivers.

Kita san, Evan Yu and Jeff san have put allot of extra time in to personally complete this batch. My big thanks to them for making this effort during my absence.

Cheers
Mark.

Hi Simon,
Not sure to be honest. Sadly the EU financial situation has influenced Lautsprecher (main EU dealer) to hold mostly CHR70 stock. For any EU end-users who would like the latest Alpair drivers that aren't available from Lautsprecher, please contact me direct: support@markaudio.com

Thanks
Mark.

Not necessarily a bad thing. You haven't seen what I've just designed for the 10P.
