Default Manger MSW Bending Wave Driver

Just a single Manger MSW.

Not very often you see this driver in the classifieds. I'll cut all my usual BS and just get down to it.

Info here:
http://www.manger-audio.co.uk/manger...transducer.htm

Specs:
http://www.manger-audio.co.uk/PDFs/MSW_data_sheet.pdf

White paper on how and why the Manger is unique:
http://www.manger-audio.co.uk/PDFs/a...al_reality.pdf

The driver has been used very briefly but its completely as new with original box and mountings/fittings. I bought it new direct from Manger UK 3 weeks ago at a cost of 515. Its got the usual 3 year Manger warranty too

I've decide to knock DIY speakers on the head over Winter and start anew come spring time next year. So plans will probably change once again and the easiest option is to sell now and then buy when I'm ready again.

I understand that even second hand these drivers are still very expensive so I wouldn't mind a trade for some DIY bits such as amp bits, sub drivers and what have you.

If your interested in just the driver with a straight transaction then I'm wanting 400.

BTW I also have detailed plans for the Manger Zerobox 103, 107 and 109. These include XO schematics, cutting lists and stuffing guides. These can be provided with the driver.

Have you ever had a chance to listen to Mangers in good setup?
Someone said it is theatre for blinds and I feel it the same, when I close my eyes.

Take good 35cm wide enclosure with 30cm depth and enough stuffing, take your favourite woofer with +-90dB sensitivity or active subwoofer, use +-100mikroF condensator before MSW and listen to great sound.

Relevant amplifier may be colourful 300B for small room but with something like Electrocompaniet or Audia Flight A50 the dynamic attack will be real. Dont use Manger with unmusical amps, it will sound very crude!

Mangers are not for huge SPL and excellent directivity but at moderate levels you will be surprised what detail even heavy metal recordings have.

With somethink like Holoprofile the directivity is not a problem. You can DIY.

This 1MSW offer is great for DIY center cannel.

Hey Jin

It looks to be around $2050 CAD for the driver I'm offering here plus a new one from Manger making a pair. This also includes shipping from the UK.

Being more specific about trades I'm looking for:

Any quality amplification but particularly interested in UcD stuff.

Any interesting driver(s) from the likes of Audio Technology, Scanspeak sliced papers, Accuton etc.

Top notch sub/woofer driver(s) from the likes of Adire, TC Sounds, Beyma LX60, TAD etc.

Good thinking.

Even if they weren't to my liking I could smoke 'em. Could turn into a very expensive habbit though.

No one got any swaps?

This really is a unique sounding driver, certainly not without fault but for coherence, detail and sheer transparency its one of the best I've heard.
