Here's the link.

BTW, it's not Van der Laan, but another René (can't remember his name now).

I think (correct me if I'm wrong) you're referring to Rene Schrouwen aka Webbie.

have a look at this AES preprint -- the sensitivity of the preceding models as well as the 8526 is presented.

Yes, I do know this paper but I never understood how sensitivity is measured (peak? average? with horn / waveguide at 3kHz?); besides, it is not always clear whether the sensitivity is referenced to the impedance; for instance, take the SA8526, it's a 5 ohms speaker but the sensitivity is given for 2,83V (which is 1W at 8 ohms or almost 2W at 5 ohms) therefore one should deduce almost 3dB from the value given. This is all "paper work", hence my question about practical experience.

For me/my sound taste, they're still among the *very very* best tweeters I've heard but I prefer to check the sensitivity announced.

Hello,

I'm René Schrauwen (aka Webbie) the owner of sa-vintage.com.

If anyone has questions about SA equipment I will glad to help.

(If Chris is still looking for a set SA 8526's, I have one set for sale. I have also diagramphs for all ribbon drivers, used and new)

Hi René
I will contact you offline for repair kits for sa 8526 -- I have a feeling that could come in handy -- just in case..


Regards
Andreas

Hello Elac310,

I you like is have also a set or two of rare SA 8535 diagrams (folies) with a lower impedance.
They measure around the 5.2 Ohm DC.
These folies comes from the lab of Stage Accompany.

So you can swap your 13-Om folies with the 5-Ohm version.
You don't have to buy SA 8526's then.

Great news. I am also happy, that there is a download aera for SA product documentations.
Where now are the formerly developer(s) of the famous SA ribbon drivers?
And which currently model from which brand could be an appropriate successor of the SA8535?

One of the former developers of the SA ribbon drivers, Philip de Haan, works at Alcons as developer.
Ben Kok works now as an accoustic engineer, he designs studio rooms and halls where the accoustics are important.

I presume that the Alcons ribbons are good alternatives for the SA 8535.
Unfortunally the Alcons ribbons are not sold seperatly.

On the other hand, SA isn't death yet, some people of SA are starting to build the SA 8535 (and folies) and woofers again.
Also complete enclosures.

After New Year I post the details.
