    Default Reiver Acoustics Millburn MK ii

    I commissioned Colin to build these for me last year to use whilst I was renting a small flat near the site I was working at that didn't have room for my OB's. Shortly afterwards I moved on to another project so these had very little use and were put into storage- I would doubt the drivers are properly run in yet.

    The cabinets are made with 18mm Baltic Birch Ply, I chose Crown Cut American Walnut for the veneer which I think looks rather spiffy.

    The driver is a 10" coaxial unit from Monacor- the SP-310CX. The bass/mid cone is rated at 96db and the 1" tweeter at 105db, so these are very easy to drive and with high power handling. the crossovers use high quality components- Jantzen 1% tolerance Superes resistors, Jantzen Z-Caps together with Jantzen Iron core (with discs) and Air core inductors.These retailed on the Reiver website at £1250, I'm looking for £700, which I think is a very good price given these are virtually new.

    I would be keeping them if I had a use for them as they are great sounding speakers, but now I'm living with my partner I need to get rid of some gear. I'll be advertising some other items in the near future.

    Demo is no problem - I'm located in Leeds. I'll deliver within 50 miles free, further within reason for cost of fuel.

    Some pics-

    the crossovers use high quality components such as Mills resistors and ClarityCaps.
    Just to clarify a small misprint by Ali. The XO'ers indeed use high quality components but NOT Mills resistors and Clarity Caps which are good in there own right. I installed Jantzen 1% tolerance Superes resistors, Jantzen Z-Caps together with Jantzen Iron core (with discs) and Air core inductors.

    I believe these coaxial drivers are a match (and in some ways excel) for the performance of any the Tannoy dual concentric drivers. You only have to ask Stratmangler what he thinks of these speakers.

    I bet they image very well. I had Avantgarde Solos that were co-ax and the imagery was wonderful.
    Poor man's Tannoys? No; just a canny man's!

    So....have you located south? A lot of us are thinking Scotland looks good....Boris!

    LOL yes I am back in Leeds again Chris. Yes they do indeed image very well, as Colin said, he rates them as good or better than Tannoys.
