Sonnie,

I have used ribbons all my life, either the DK30 or London made by Decca, both of which are now impossible to get hold of. Thank goodness there is still one source of high quality repacement ribbons. The Decca London cannot provide the power handling I need for the mid range so I opted to use the DK30 for 2.5KHz and above and the Celestion paper exponential cone down to 80Hz. Inspite of the DK30 being rated at 30 watts I drive them well above that, typically music powers 75+ watts, with a very carefull designed crossover to ensure virtually no energy at 500 Hz and below.

I prefer the sound of the ribbon, particularly its tranparency, lack of coloration and transient response. Unfortunaltely I have never heard the VMPs units but I am led to believe that they provide a very open and detailed sound, happy listening.

I also have a pair of Heil AMT HF units but I find them a little hard. They are however tremendous power handlers and can create truly unbelievable HF levels!

Must say conratulations on a really nice site. As soon as I get time, pressure of work, and I get to use the EQ wizard I will be happy to join in the fray!

Regards

Paul

Thanks on the site! We certainly hope you'll find some time to hang out with us.

The RM30's have three 20cm Neo ribbons, 280Hz (-3dB). They have a pretty wide response range up to about 7khz.
