New Ribbon Speaker Technology - Approach the perfect speaker?
 
Take a look at this site:

http://www.transmissionaudio.com/pages/738782/index.htm

Everything what is announced there looks nothing but impressive to me.

Ultralow distortion, extremely high max. SPL, perfect impulse response.......:bigeyes: :bigeyes: :bigeyes:

It seems almost too good to be true...


Read Yourself....

Where do I place my order?

So in order to hear one of these most of us will have to DIY. I think there is enough information divulged in the photo to take a stab at making one.

If anyone figures this out and puts together a group order, ill be the first one in line...

You might want to wait a little until it`s out what these ribbons will cost - when the price is according the claimed specs - it likely will be highest end.:eek:

I`m anything but an expert in DIY ribbon speakers but I fear this can hardly be DIYed.

At the site they stated it took a decade to fine tune this technology.
Not that I believe manufactorers claims blindly but all this really looks like there is a little more involved than just a lot of magnets and aluminium-foil (or copper).

For example, how they manage to drive the ribbons without a transformer?

How it`s possible to make the suspension of something so fragile like a ribbon diaphragm floating?

Also X-max of up to 25 mm (1 inch):att'n: peak-to-peak or distortion of 0,03% :att'n: at 133 dB SPL :att'n: 10 meter on axis :att'n: (for their upcoming PA System) doesn`t look like this could be DIY area (unfortunately :bawling: ).

If this sounds anything like Apogee speakers, I'll be the first to purchase a pair. The pricing of these speakers will probably prevented me from buying them in my life time.

Well the inventor created it through DIY didn't he? :smash:

Here's the patent application.

I have issues with some of the claims. a quick example is: The high conductivity of the ribbon element means that it's not uniformly driven.

He apints with a rather broad brush when it comes to comparing the other technologies.

I'll believe it when I see it.

I'd like to see some data. Marketing babble gets old quick.
