    If you like it fine, but effective results can be achieved at a fraction of the cost.

    You can make superteeters that are as good, or better, for a fraction of the cost of the Tannoy design.

    Hi
    Very interesting. Can you share how to make them or provide a link to an article? I do have the Taskets but not sure of the effect although I have listened carefully - would love experiment further.

    Many thanks

    Yep, they are ones I’m using. As you say I read they are easily damaged. I have tried them with and without and I’m not sure that I can hear a difference, hence why I would like to experiment with others. Can the bapturs be tested with a multi meter? I guess there should be a resistance reading of some description?

    Regards

    Thanks for your comments.
    Once again there are different opinions
    I guess if I want to know it I have to buy it and check it out.
