Yeah that was my thoughts.. I'm thinking it could be marketing at work there while supply is being focused on. I'd get imported products real soon before they get more expensive.. they needa hurry.

Smile Yes, tell us!

I'm seriously considering the ER18 RNX as midranges for a big 3-way active speaker project, hence I would be very interrested in hearing about someones listening experience on these units, e.g. as used in the SR71's.

So, what's the verdict?

I am surprised that no one else has commented. I really didn't want to write but it seems that many of you are hungry for it.

I've had them for a while now, it took me two nights to built. Very clean and neutral sounding. I compared it to a pair of Onix Rocket RS450s. I used to have a pair of Haydn Grands in the same room

First impression was NOICE.... I've grown to hate those online reviews with vague vocabularies, so I'll avoid that and try my best. SA71 made my RS450 sound muffled. As if a thin blanket was covering the RS450. SA71 creates a more 3-dimensional stage. SA71 sounds fuller and "image" better with a much deeper stage. (ie guitar sounds closer than the drummer...etc) I liked the Vifa tweeter better though. I sometimes find the SA71 too "bright" and hurts my ear sometimes. The Vifa XT25 is smoother. I am in the process of switching from a Denon to Marantz so fingers crossed. The SA71 has well defined bass. The RS450 has more decay and lingers. So far, I am loving this pair. Money well spent imo.

If you have specific questions, let me know and I'll do my best to help. I am no expert though, just love this hobby.

Hi!

Thanks for the reply!

Well, that sounds promising in deed, at least you do not have any subjective objections in disfavor of the 18RNX units!

But then I just came across these 4" titanuim units from Tangband and they do look rather interesting.... hmmm..

What would be the better midrange solution, two Tnagbands or one 18RNX....

I had the same issue with a pair of zaph l18+27tbfcg, there seemed to be something going on with the lower treble that hurt my ears when used with my denon 4800. I since switched to a pioneer elite 72txv and the issue went away completely. what denon model where you using?

I should probably clarify. The speaker is not too bright. In fact, very neutral sounding. It's just that certain parts of songs sound "more pitchy" than the Rockets.
