my kora mandala speakers are a fairly rare thing, i have had them around 3 years,longer than anything else hi-fi wise, main reason is that i could never get back the grand i have in them, i got them from mick(marr) part ex some transmisson line speakers ( the ones graham had at scalford 3 years ago ) and some cash, so paid about £700 for them, then rebuilt the crossovers costing £200, then got the top drivers reconed for £90

hers a reply from kora i got when i emailed them for more info

Subject: Re: kora mandala speakers

Dear Robin COLDWELL.

KORA Mandala caracteristics were :

2 way speakers double bass reflex.

4 Ohms, 93 dB.

Frequency of cut : 2 kHz - 6 dB / Octave.

2 X Boomer speakers : HT210G0 Audax.

1 X Tweeter speaker : TW 34 Audax.

The retail price in France was near 2500.00 Euros for a pair if I remember well.

Best regards.

Cyril Canod,

Hi End Audio Technology,

KORA Products,

8 bis, rue Claude Perrault,

31500 Toulouse,

France.

so quite a interesting buy, and the wifr likes them, although some wammers find the treble a bit hard, but as my high frequency hearing is shot, they sound ok to me

Mine must be too having lived with Naim Nait 3 and Credos for 14 years. ;-)

Looking forward to hearing them (plus other peoples kit) and, even better, meeting some other Wammers. :^

Hi Steve (great name by the way)

Get to the M62 and look left, that's me waving over in Goole.

Yes I'm a Goolie, and yes we normally go around in pairs. :)

Cheers

Steve

P.S. No problem with the passport, but just a bit worried about the sheep dip should I ever return from Lancashire

Hi Robin

I would like to come to the ball too as I live nearby in Pudsey. Might bring a few goodies like an Audio Note M2 pre that's been beefed up with silver wiring etc.

Cheers

Hi Robin

Thanks I enjoyed meeting yourself and others at Steve's last summer, it was a good do. Let me know if there is any change in the situation, my friend is going to borrow the AN M2 pre but I have bought Tom's SJS Arcadia Model 2 pre and have a Border Patrol CU2 as well so variety is indeed the spice of life.

Cheers
