I’ve used AMTs (Air Motion Transformer), Planars, and Ribbons. They are the fastest, they are the best.. very simple.. I’m more of a planar/ribbon guy because a GOOD AMT can make or break the bank. Either and or. One of my favorite combos is a soft dome for HF and planar/ribbon for UHF.
What I have been doing for the last 20-25 years planars/ribbons down to 300 hz from there down, round drivers.. I real sonic masterpiece is the Strathearn ribbon... Just wonderful..
He never mentioned those when I talked to him on my ulfers, definitely intresting. Amts are similar to ribbons, but are folded accordion style and squeeze the air to produce sound. Also has much greater surface area, allowing smaller movements . Each type has its own advantages of course.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_Motion_Transformer
His motivation for proposing them was in response to me asking about the Be tweeter option.
I told him I was interested in that option because I like the idea of having that little extra touch of air and clarity in the top end, as long as it’s not fatiguing or brash.
He then said they could even do a ribbon if I wanted it. We talked about the sonic characteristics of them. How they are fast and clear. I think he also mentioned that the ribbons mass works with his array design. Definitely seemed very excited and enthusiastic about it and assured me he wouldn’t let anything leave his shop that wouldn’t blow my mind. I was sold.
definitely gonna be at least a 2 month wait for sure. I’m guessing longer. He said they got slammed with orders recently.
