Let talk about something more serious, do someone knows another manufacturer besides Tannoy who makes serious supertweeters? i.e. 20-100 kHz ?

Accuton's D20 diamond tweeter supposedly has output to 100kHz... Some ribbons may be able to go that high.

The russians did an experiment that showed a man can percieve 200kHz with the transducer pressed right onto his head...

This thingie is at least nicely manufactured !

Fun aside: TAD sells a ribbon that is said to go up to 100 kHz.

So now, we have Accuton, TAD, Tannoy, Sony and Pioneer.

Some others?

Looking at the site, the speaker system shown is quite conventional with what looks like a TAD (knockoff?) 15" woofer and a standard horn, all done nicely in wood...

The "Microwave" reference most likely comes from the real but lose relationship between audio frequency horns and microwave horns having very similar physical dimensions and therefore similar in construction.

The "Quantum" reference comes from either a mis-understanding of the word in English, or mis application or else as is suspected by many here the deliberate intent to decieve.

What if anything the products do is another issue entirely.

What I find funny is just how many guys will read this, laugh at it, and then without thinking, argue to the death about how much better their speaker wire is than somebody elses.

Actually, what's funny is that someone out there might have paid money for any of these products. The upgrade chip. Man. That guy must have some super-secret government nanotechnology stuff going on in there. I mean, if it can do all that, including "sensing" when the cds are inserted via osmosis to turn itself on..

As much as these sites amuse me, they also make my brain hurt!

What a bunch of sceptics. Don't you know that you have to listen before you start knocking?
