Those look incredible.  Are you going to be at RMAF this year?  I'd love to hear them.

Not sure what shows we might do yet, but RMAF is always a good one!

how about providing a spade to banana adapter for those with expensive cables with spades as a lot of the manufacturers charge an arm and a leg to re-terminate.
this is the same problem i have with the gr research tube connectors just in this case you have to re-terminate if you have any other connector.

Using adapters would defeat the purpose of a low mass connection. Our speakers cables are under $300... sell your expensive ones and buy ours 😉

Thought they were called the A3? The aluminum binding post plate says "R3". Or am I just confused?

a3 was the original prototype design, r3 is the refined production model.

Hello.

Nice looking speaker. Do you by any chance have tech specs or test data you can provide?  Thanks

Forget what I just asked as I see some data on the other pages as I was a bit lazy and didn't see the others pages.  Good luck with your sales.

Looks like a really cool speaker. Other than stats (which I use), smallish monitors are my favourite type of speaker. If I only had another room ....

Great looking design, but I can't help wondering why you've got that nice roundover on the back, but none on the front or at the edge of the waveguide as it transitions into the baffle.  Seems like that sharp edge will cause some serious diffraction effects.

There is very little reflection from the tweeter as it is controlled by the waveguide. A waveguige is a mild horn which controls directivity (in our case) to 130 degrees. Even with a standard mounted dome tweeter, the reflections are primarily off of the baffle surface, not the edge unless it protrudes (like a typical grille frame).
