Nice pics Stefan, and as Mark mentioned in his talk, the profile is shallow indeed.

Also no spider!

To answer a few questions. Yes the front suspension acts to do all of the balancing and centring of the coil in the gap which has been made possible in part by moving the centre of gravity so far forward.

Yes the Alpair 5.2 (which happens to be my favourite driver by a country mile) was the first of these drivers to be sans spider. Mark has been chomping at the bit to bring the goodies to larger drivers.

Size wise, the A11MS is the same physical size as the Pluvia11, in fact the first time Scott and I got to listen to either of these drivers was at the North West Audio Show we put them in the Pensil 11 I had at the show after the first day closed. We only meant to have a quick listen but put tune after tune on until about midnight. At one point Scott said 'They might just be the best full range driver I have ever heard' The way they loaded the room just seemed so right.

Re the CHN-70, I'd prefer to keep comments about other drivers out of this thread which is to discus these new drivers, however I will say that last year I sold twice as many CHN-70 as any other drivers, people typically buy a pair and then come back and buy more and more pairs. They are as cheap as chips so I think we can only expect so much.

Stefan

Stefan,

Thanks for sharing some early listening impressions on the A11MS.

If you don't mind me probing a bit further, what genres did you guys listen to? Good to hear you got that "one more track" feeling while at it.

Lots of different stuff, we actually had a go at trying to break them so it ranged from heavier stuff like Krafwerk and Bob Marley through to Eva Cassidy. We were a bit punch drunk from a VERY long day though so I can't really remember all of it but I did actually put some of the stuff in a Tidal play list so here you go.

I don't know about already, but nominal sensitivty on the 7MS is rated as 86.324dB 1m/2.83v, the 11MS at 88.068dB 1m/2.83v.
