Thanks.
What is the sound of one hand clapping?

The last I heard from Madisound was that they might be in stock by the end of the month.

Will order stock to support Canadian customers.

Bill - the batch of which we speak is the order to Madisound - Mark can address the question as to current status of the domestic Asian market, as well as Euro zone resellers.

I"m looking forward to this driver. I like the sound of a paper driver and have the CHP-70 gen 2 which I really like and don't mind the warm (rolled off) highs and can only anticipate that this will be a nice step up, but can I ask why the blue color on your paper drivers? Maybe this was already asked and answered, but I think the CHP looks great in natural (quite different than the Fostex).

Default Impedance

I was just looking at the spec sheet and saw that the stated RE is 5,4 ohms.

On the impedance graph (which i assume is measured free air), the minimum impedance is about 8,5 ohms...

How can there be that big difference?

One is DCR, a pure resistance at 0Hz, and the other is the impedance (at a much higher frequency)
