Just too much stuff ... off topic dscussion
Given the balance of things i value in a speaker, personally i'd take 7.3 please (and add woofers if i felt need for more bass/dynamics). A10.2 over 12. And i'd take 2 pair of my EL70 over A12. With A10.2 it would be more of a struggle to choose. Not helping the sale of the MK12T here am i. Not to say that they aren't excellent, just that the others set a VERY high bar.

Must be a damn high bar then, I have just finished a pair of MK12T and they're great. Some helper FAST is needed but not on all music, hopefully Dave will be able to come up with the wooft to compliment these and if he does I for one will definately be building them.

The bar has been getting higher & higher over and only recently passed where the best were at the peak of the FR era (some will dispute that new ones are that good).

And what ranks where changes based on what attributes you value most -- speakers in general are way far away from perfect.

And your room. And your amp. And the rest of your kit.

Just the regular stock milliSize enclosures, nothing on clear-out. There is a pair of built & finished mFonken for sale at about what they sold for as flat-paks.

For reference, do you remember which speakers you sold to me last year? I'm bringing them to Burning Amp this year.

They're a bit bass -shy, but very good at testing the resolving power of my electronics otherwise.
