    It all depends on what you're looking for in a speaker.
    I have spent some time listening to the Salon2, M2, and E2, all in the same room but at different times.

    My favorite of the three was the E2, though I thought the bass was a bit better in the M2.

    I bought an awful lot over the years. I spent circa 500k dollars on various pieces of kit.

    Once I got my hands on some K2 S9800's (the final Timbers masterpiece), I stopped looking.

    I've powered them with Devialet monoblocks and I stopped considering audio to be a hobby.

    Simply listening to music replaced it and still, some 9 years on, the 9800's continue to amaze me.

    I will not have listened to something in years. I will hit play and be simply blown away, regardless of genre.

    That happens whether I'm listening at 95db or at 60db. The level is totally irrelevant when it comes to the joy the 9800's bring to one's music collection and passion.

    Greg left a present that should be appreciated for decades to come.

    Wolf,

    What a monster! Never heard of Diatone driver. Probably all custom made for a special application. Maybe for earthquake simulations since Japan at risk.

    Looks old though based on black & white pic and the wheels. Must have been Mitsubishi Heavy Industries division that made this. Imagine having to replace the surround on that thing, could take a long time. Any specs on the beast like how low can it go?

    Don't know if someone would have been brave enough to keep that huge sub, specially in Japan where space is at a premium. Might have finished its days in a museum, i doubt, more likely in a scrap yard or landfill which is sad...

    Yup, it is real. Found it accidentally searching for some response and impedance curves for older Fane Acoustics Crescendo Series woofers (have the specs and TS but missing the curves which i finally found). In the search results there was a link to subaudio.org (from France it seems). Clicked on that and went around then saw Diatone speakers, worth scrolling down (more than half way) to look at the various monster sub versions! Not difficult to understand the specs below each subwoof www.subaudio.org/diatone.html


    The one Wolf showed here is a PW-1600 driver, Fs 8 hz!, power 3,000 Watts, driver diameter 160 cm (63")! Pure madness in a country where every centimeter of space is counted.

    Enough cone area to make a 2245 or 2269 look like a children's toy. Could be DA woofer to play the 8 hz test tone on my test CD... Dementia at its best, lol

    OK thanks for the info. I guess we'll have confirmation in the near future from one way or the other...
