I think you might need one more post before you can include images.

I'd like to see images though! I love the SE84 amps!

LR,  I wouldn't want to make you wait for a bit of audio bling. Here's a pair of beauties... SE84ZSM.  The photo from audiogon is no longer available but this is like my pair except mine have an extra set of RCAs where the black plugs are in front...and a walnut base.  They have been modded with Bees Wax Caps, CKC mod, CCE mod and upgraded resistors.  I listen to these more than my Torii MK IV.  Mark.

PS...below the Monos I posted a pic of the SE84ZS...That Fitmartin owns

Could not get the image to load, but the amp is exactly as pictured with walnut base and volume control.

Clark Blumenstein built me an amazing furniture quality pair of bamboo cabinets for the Alpair 10P,s, the best full range driver I have EVER heard and I have owned and built a few in the past 40 years.

Cheers!

I've been using Alpair 10.2's in Mar-Ken cabs for several years now. They're good enough for my ears, that I've kinda lost the "what speakers will I build next" itch.
I'm sure you're enjoying yours, they are great drivers when mated to the appropriate cabs.

I get to hear most of the MarkAudio offerings at our annual G to G, hosted by Dave D, (P-10)
(Many of the Alpair enclosures have been designed by him or Scott L. (Scottmoose)
August every year on Southern Vancouver Island. a fair number of folks show up from Seattle & area.
The absolute finest MA drivers I've heard thus far, are the Alpair MAOP 7. in the Frugel-Horn cabinets.
They're not available here, unless things have changed, I think we heard the only pair in Canada at the time.
If you ever get a chance to hear 'em---- !
Best
Don
