    You happen to be living in the plasma tweeter capital of Australia. I am aware of at least 3 systems with Lansche plasma tweeters in it, and one with Acapella (i.e. mine) - all in Melbourne. There are zero plasma tweeter systems outside Melbourne, as far as I am aware. I think that mine must be the only DSP controlled plasma tweeter system in the world.
    Hi Keith, my apology for the late reply. Thanks for your invite. It's a bit difficult this time of year, but I'll get in touch when I have a free afternoon. Yes once i've put the equivalent of 250hrs on my S5 Mk2's & Vitus SCD-025Mk2 (with a little help from my PAD Luminist burn in cd), I'll invite you over for a listening session with some nice finger food & drinks .

  2. Thanks Keith_W thanked for this post

    Not having heard all the available tweeters I have the Salon2's and still I'm amazed at what my old v2 VA Beethoven's could do.

    No substitute for size, but the Big Heil is essentially equivalent to an 8 inch midrange/tweeter with an accelerometer!
    "The mid range-tweeter unit Oskar A.V.T. (A.M.T) 650 - 23000 Hz (a revolutionary breakthrough in solving the fundamental problems of diaphragm mass, inertia and self resonance)."












    I am also quite taken with the Rowen LMT tech which is similar but without the velocity transformation...
