The texture of the oakwood cabinets are fine.

Need to run-in the Alpair 12 drivers for 200 hours at least. You can feel the difference on the sound as spending longer time on listening.

I selected and soldered Furutech FS-303 copper cable between Alpair 12 drivers and binding posts. The quality of FS-303 is very good and easy to use.

I wanted to post a picture of my new speakers. Cabinets were supplied by Tony. Its 18mm MDF with piano finish. The cabinets look amazing especially with the gold drivers. I am really enjoying the Alpair 12 sound, it is very detailed and the tone just sounds that much more natural. I am still yet to build a tube amplifier to get the best out of the full range drivers.

I would like to add a few comments about Tony’s service. Throughout the process he was very responsive with the questions and was of great help while I tried to decide what I wanted to order. There were quite a few delays but this was due to factors out of Tony’s control. One tip I have to anyone interested in ordering cabinets is to first get in touch with your local customs about what wood items are allowed in to your country. I was almost ordered oakwood cabinets but had to change it to MDF.

Hi Suresh,

The cabinet in piano black finish really matches Alpair 12 gold cone. It's beautiful and sexy.

Thank you very much for your comments on my service. It's my pleasure to make customers satisfied with my products and service.

Amplifier is very important for full range speakers like Mark Audio's full ranger. To build or to buy good amplifier for your speakers.

Cheers!

Tony.
