They're supposed to be both very good and very expensive.

Very cool looking...

Inverted??? Stators are fixed, audio is fed to the film.

These sales pitches always read like a wine label to me.

Lots of BS...

I'm looking for a dealer nearby to go check 'em out. Although, I imagine I'll continue to DIY my esl.

I have a pair of 0.3 hybrids. See review:

http://www.avrev.com/equip/final/index.html

I probably have less than 10 hours on them. I have had them in storage for a few years.

Hi,

Danielm You´re so damn right
Even more BS in the review. Why don´t those reviewers not just simply concentrate on what they might be able to do.... just listen and report? Instead they who generally have not the slightest technical knowledge try to explain technical details and effects.
In some cases this should be the funny kind of literature You normally read on the loo and lough about, but some reviewers read such that You get instant pain

jauu

I have heard them two yers ago and they were great. Very transparent and large sweet spot. One of their employees who demoed them wanted my CD that I asked him to play.

Regards

Charles

You may find that the Mylar is separatly coated on both sides, + one side and - the other side.
And the HT is applied to both front and rear stators. Maybe, just a guess

Cheers George

They have a patent to the inverted technology. Interesting read, how they solve the various problems. Don't know how they sound.
