It's a shame to leave that hanging in the air. I haven't dealt with them for some time, but their product ranges and services look as broad and as active as ever.

It is broad, but i keep seeing comments about stuff they sell that is not very well executed. Some of their boxes/XOs for example.

Im mostly interested in the FRs. They have Fostex (they are advertising F200A, long discontinued and highly reviered as one of the best Fostex ever). I’d buy Jordan direct (have a pair, too much money doe performance not up to similar size Mark Audios), some of teh Fountek are decent cheap small drivers (haven’t tried any but the FE88ex) — maybe nt=ot, price is each. The FF85wk and Alpair 5.2/3 are decidely better. The Peerlless look to be from the same germ as the VIFA TC9 so i would be excedingly careful about them.

I didn’t go so far as to check if the prices have VAT on them or not.

Then from looking at the prices i do know, the old maxim of price in UK = Price in US, but UK in GBP and in the US $USD.

The Mark Audios Stefan sells are very competitive with US prices.
