  1. Hi All I guess you guys have read the two reviews for the FoilFlex cables !! BUT I often wondered why Wojciech that did the HighFidelity.pl review wasn't completely blown asunder by what the FoilFlex cables did in his his system ?? I knew his Siltech Triple Crown speaker cables were quite high end but I didn't rrealise they were generally considered the best speaker cables in the world !!! and wait for it >>> cost US$68,000 per pair WHAT ? Thats Aud$107,000 . Check out what he says about the comparo here in the paragraph below . And Greensleeves is another story - this is probably the only (I have to check it out) album from this label recorded on a reel-to-reel tape recorder (if I understand correctly - there is the PCM logo on OBI); and it was released on vinyl. There is a lot of interesting things to talk about concerning this release, but dynamic contrasts particularly draw attention - they are incredible. And the FoilFlex cables conveyed it very accurately - almost as well as the Siltech Triple Crown cables, they were compared to. Silver cables from the Netherlands sound darker, have a more velvety background, but these differences were quite small. Hmmmmmm interesting huh ? the Siltech Triple Crowns cost 56 times that of the FoilFlex. Cheers and keep lisnin Mike Lenehan
  2. HI Trevor Bills Magnesiums look identical to an ML2 . This initial prototype design was really a proof of concept speaker . It took a mountain of R&D on the Xovers to make that very difficult Magnesium driver work properly. The new design actually uses the latest version of the magnesium driver in Bills speakers . We are also going to use the Seas Exotic T35 which is certainly the best High frequency driver I have heard. I will be starting on the first prototype this week so we are looking at a few weeks before I'll have any pics. Cheers Mike lenehan
  3. OK let me first explain that this new speaker will be designed as a final effort or product so it will be built specifically for sound quality ! or absolute accuracy to the source its being fed by . It is likely to be considered too unattractive or strange to be considered by some audiophiles and certainly by 99% of better halves. My brother Russell's initial comment was ! too weird Lad , you wont sell them !! Ok be that as it may I'm building these speakers for myself in any case. So we are looking at a 2 way standmount with integrated 3Hz isolation stand , they will weigh about 80kgs each .Drivers will be the Seas W19 graphene Magnesium woofer and T35 Exotic tweeter. (both drivers will be significantly modified) The front baffle will be made of foam and the bass enclosure will be a rather strange affair . . This will definately be a speaker that will not be accepted by the better half !!! Theres no way those things are going in my lounge room !! I cant say absolutely but this speaker will probably be the speaker I will retire with in my own system . I'm interested to know what you guys think of this concept ? Cheers Mike Lenehan
  4. OK Galactic done ! I'll take a case of Limeburners Single malt as a deposit on the new speakers No Dry
  5. Hi all been a long time since I have posted ! mainly because of a new loudspeaker or should I say a new concept . Some of you may know I've been designing a new loudspeaker for Bill Hobba called the Magnesium limited . This speaker uses the 5.5inch Seas Magnesium bass driver and the Morel 1 inch neodynium tweeter. After what was a long long time with Xover design we ended up with a loudspeaker that exceeded the performance of the drivers I currently use in my ML1 ML2 and ML5 loudspeakers At 65 years old I was seriously considering retiring at the end of the year ! was it boredom ? anyway back to why I'm fired up now ! These new Magnesiums are simply incredible and finally exceed what the Peerless Nomex drivers are capable of , let me explain why I virtually retired with the Peerless Nomex's . These drivers use Carbon fibre impregnated synthetic paper cones . OK so what ? We all know that lightweight paper cones produce exception midrange sound but are not that great in the bass . The main reason for this is that the paper produces superb vocal and mid sound because of papers low moving mass and it's ability to dampen mid harmonic resonances at the top of it's passband. So with the Peerless nomex drivers we have a situation where the nomex behaves very much like paper in the mids but also has a carbon filament which makes the drivers sound like more rigid bextrene or composite diaphragm drivers which equates to excellent bass. (is anyone bored to death yet ? ) OK I've tried all the expensive super drivers and ! well ! sorry but no go , the rather inexpensive Peerless Nomex 830883 bass driver at $120 simply beats them . UNTIL now ! I will be using the new Seas W19NX-001 Graphene Magnesium woofer and Seas T35 Exotic 35mm tweeter in a new design . Theres a lot more to this story so I will continue tomorrow ( I need another Chivas Regal and dry ) Cheers Mike Lenehan

  10. Hi Gruffnutz. It would cost nothing to find out 😎 just buy a new Evolve Curious and compare it to your standard Curious ! When it sounds the same you can confirm your suspicion and send it back for zero cost 🧐 Problem is it doesn’t sound the same it’s quite ahead and I can guarantee it 😁 cheers Mike Lenehan
  11. Hi everyone yes we will be at the show in October and have a plethora of new product Firstly we will be sharing the room with the lads from Heschl and using their new 350 integrated amp with DAC ! An awesome device and right upto the performance of our loudspeakers and cables. Heres a a quick list of the new products we will be showing up with . 1. The latest version of the venerable ML2Reference Loudspeakers 2. New 3hz Isolation stands for ML2 and ML1's ! These stands improve the performance of any loudspeaker, improving bass and 3D sound staging to an amazing degree. 3. Our Latest Range of FoilFlex Cables .These new cables are currently being sold at pre release prices until we get packaging and the website upto speed . A team of testers did a review in Sydney recently and the FoilFlex speaker cable outperformed a cable at 13 times its price . 4. Our range of Curious USB cables. Plus a surprise . 5. A new range of Power Cables from EGM Audio at what can only be described as amazingly competitive prices . We worked with Joel from EGM doing a heap of BETA testing for them in the early days and the results are exceptional . I'll put some prices up next week when Joel has them available. Cheers. Mike Lenehan
  12. Thanks vivianbl and 075Congo although cables seem expensive for what you are physically getting there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that SOUND per dollar ! Cables are an inexpensive upgrade. Cheers. Mike Lenehan
  13. Hi Deafenears None of the cables are shielded ! We found shielding ruined the sound of the cables . Shielded sounds misty I believe compared to a correctly designed unshielded . XLR’s are Nuetrik Cheers Mike Lenehan
