Hi all,

Sometime back, I had visited Mr. Mickey Registrar, a niche speaker designer located at Pune who worked in KEF on the recommendation of Viren.

I'm surprised there is no mention of him in this forum anywhere.

I had seen a review of his speakers in AV Max also.

Has anyone listened to his speakers?

@suri & iaudio

Somehow I missed your posts.

Got his No. & spoke to him. He says he is now concentrating only on European markets.:rolleyes:

Says he'll make speakers on firm order but has increased the cost to 3L.:sad:

Captain, good to know you got through to him and bad news that his products are so out of reach.
Have you auditioned his speakers?

Hi Titus,

I had a listen to his full range multi driver speakers when I visited Pune way back in 1998. They sounded fabulous. He uses Vifa Scanspeak drivers. The size of the speakers is quite intidimating. He was quoting 70k for a pair then.

70k has gone up to 300k in a span of 12 years! Captain, you should have made your move back then! Or why dont you go Suri's route? DIY! I am sure you can do it if you put yourself to it.
Anyways one of our mumbai, pune members should try and listen to his latest creations.

Gee:eek: Didn't have 70k then. Don't have 3L now:mad:

In fact, his speakers were reviewed in AV Max some years back.

why dont you go Suri's route? DIY! I am sure you can do it if you put yourself to it.

Sure but I need to 1st develop the passion & get energy levels that Suri has. And to circumvent the deep pockets that he has, I should probably become a "Circuit" (aka Munnabhai's sidekick) of firstly Suri & then of Mickey to gain requisite expertise.:D

one of our mumbai, pune members should try and listen to his latest creations.

If anyone wants, I can send the contact details via PM. (It may be improper for me to post his number in the forum without his consent.)

Seriously, a group of wannabe DIYers amongst us can do a community speaker building effort under his guidance.

Of course, we must convince him first. My gut feeling is, he can be.:licklips:

Volunteers; raise your hands please.

Capt Rajesh,

Are you still interested in Mickeys speakers?

I own a pair, specially modded by him. Have upgraded to Magneplanars recently.

The speakers are in mint condition and sound brilliant!

Will sell for a reasonable price.

Also have a Proceed AMP 3 that drives them (they need power) for sale as well.

Saw this just now & realise how important is "you've been quoted" feature.

@dee dee I've moved on & have upgraded my speakers twice. After Acoustic Portrait MS101 I now have Upgraded to Cadence Aristas. I'm not looking else would've surely considered .

May be you should reveal the price & pics here; someone may find it interesting. BTW which is that amp? Never heard of it.
