    My take on it iirc from looking at the specs a week or so back on B.D.'s site was that its a two way...I only saw clear mention of two drivers & that the single 8inch driver was also horn loaded through the base of the cabinet for bass duties & that upper frequencies were care of a compression driver through the horn at the top of the cabinet & that the horn could be adjusted for correct beaming at the listening position. I'm more than happy to be corrected on any of these points tho' as I'm really not sure

    It's a 2-way, crossed over at 2.5kHz. It doesn't say on the website what the topology of the horn is - it looks to me to be more of a quarter wave thing than a true back-loaded horn. How does it look from underneath? Is it pretty much empty inside, which would agree with this, or is there lots of woodwork inside, as you might get on a BLH?

    Cool.

    I also see that the US importer sells them for $17k. Since you've had to include VAT in your price, I say well done

    Hi Paolo, I had a look at D H speakers, some interesting designs, it'd be good to have a listen sometime, perhaps they may appear at Munich next year.
    When you're passing give me a shout, it'd be a pleasure to demo for you.
    Cheers,
    Jack

    France were the largest market for Tune Audio last year Stu, there are a few bits and bobs regarding Marvel on French hifi forums.
    Mainland Europe are much keener on horns than the UK at the moment, I believe due to too many badly implemented designs being demonstrated at shows and compromised designs being offered over here.
    I am confident I can swing this opinion and show people what a well thought out design can do.

    Just a quick note to say that I had a listen to these speakers at Jack's and very nice they are too, a lovely sound that is easy on the ear and the more you listen to them the better they sound. They look much better in the flesh and have a big sweet spot, so you can listen off axis.

    They sounded great on the end of the MingDa mono's/pre and would do justice to some mega expensive amps no doubt. Thanks to Jack for taking the time out.

    Thanks for coming round Bob, obviously I'm glad you enjoyed them, I doubt there is much you haven't heard out there so it goes a long way. Thanks for introducing me to some new music. Off to Amazon I go.

    looks like a fostex sigma 8" driver in a quarter-wave transmission cab, helped with a horned tweeter.

    http://www.fostexinternational.com/d...df/fe208ez.pdf

    depending on application, it may turn out it's pretty smart to have a floor coupled horn. can't imagine how it sounds but it may address a usual phase issues between direct radiating and horn wave in a not too big room.

    I had a listen to these earlier. Thought they were brilliant. Not as big as I though they would be, although I don't think I'd like to try and lift one.
    Lovely bass, mids n' highs. Drivers integrate really well. Could happily have sat there and listened for hours. I could go on and on about them. But I won't. They are dead good.
