You can understand then what an aggressive price the 2 sets of bamboo enclosures are now

that's retail niche product pricing for ya - when you buy over $250,000 a year from each of half a dozen or so competing wholesale material suppliers, the prices are lower than that - but it still takes several dozens of hours to fabricate and finish some of the more elaborate boxes

Ok, I've been listening to my mMar-Ken6p's for a day or so. The semi-enclosed cabinet style of my desktop helps augment the bass from these little guys, so they have a nice balanced output. I think these speakers are going to be "hard to beat" for my computer audio needs.

Thanks Dave and Chrisb.

"Alpair 7.3 will not work all that well in these (1 of the reason for the aggressive prices)."

Do you have a new dMar-Ken7 design available for the Alpair 7.3?

Kees,

Yes. The resvision comprises a change in the height of the slot vents. The update went out to subscribers a couple weeks ago. The next update will include a trapezoidal box (which we will build).

Here is a picture of the 1st set of the 1st regular dMar-Ken7.3 i have seen in the wild (buzzforb's)
