I'll ask. The on-line translators aren't perfect. Norio is busy at this time so I'll see if others in Japan have time to make a translation.

Linfof is putting this system on demonstration for anyone wishing to visit his studio, so feedback will do the rounds in the Japan forums.

I've felt sufficiently confident from the positive reception they received at the Tube show to go ahead and make the cones. Now its about sorting out the back end of the power-train. So far, the "thumbs up" is going to the Japan rectangle wired coil used on the current Alp10 Gen. 2, and a hybrid spider from Matsubara san.

Cheers
Mark.

The latest evaluation project is from Linfof, see this pic and link (use Google or similar to translate the page):

ALPAIR10 MAOP??? - Linfof?? - Yahoo!???

Thanks
Mark.
Those are beautiful The detailing on the boxes is a little japanese and very lovely. I love the background being the same as the boxes!

It's terrifyingly good =)

I have quickly translated that blog entry for you.
Suffice it to say, I want a pair!

My disclaimer is that my friends have often said that I suck at translation.
Artistic liberties aside this the essential gist:

----------------

The Alpair10 MAOP White Ash enclosures are finished.
The boxes are a little on the small side but the sound is good...
I'll let the people who've actually heard them assess the quality of sound so please be patient.
These are still a pre-sale prototype and can only be heard here.

(picture)

I've now heard back from a customer with their assesment so I'll copy it here.

With one listen you can clearly see this as a completely new sound can't you!
The sound comes so cleanly and the not a hint of coloration from the enclosure.
The sound was so expansive, wonderfully filling the room (long sentence edit: he felt they imaged exceptionally and disappeared in the room) that you wouldn't think it was a single (!) fullrange driver.
I was amazed at how far fullrange (drivers) have come.
It seemed as though the troublesome and time consuming nature of making these drivers means they will be a limited time offering but, surely there are a lot of people that would like to see this become a standard (catalog) model.

----------------

Mark,
what would you say is the major diffference in presentation between the MAOP and current 10.2 drivers? I know you spoke of more design. I assume this means it hasnt been finalized.

You are so cracked out on MA drivers.

That said I am selling all the ones I am not using and STILL eyeballing the new 70.3s at madisound...
