Yeah I have been reading, but there really haven't been any updates that have any substance.
Well except for 11's attempt at this. I think it's just a frustrating topic in general. Rollercoaster style.

I've been getting regular updates from eleven by PM since he has my caps. He's had them ~1 mo and has been making substantial progress. I'll let him speak for himself, but I'm encouraged at where things are with his solution.

I just did a huge double take on that - it can't have been a month!  It hasn't been two weeks yet - I received them feb 11 :P

Time waiting on actives is like dog years.  One week is seven.  But if that's true, we've been waiting on this since, 2005?  So it's been 35 years.

I am getting Gefell and AKG prototypes today from the machinist.  I have stuffed boards performing well in test. Things are moving quickly.  When I am satisfied with the initial performance, I will send the prototypes out for others to test.

Also, the relationship with the machinist means I will likely be producing mounting bars.  They will not be mere copies of the stuff currently on the market. I think you'll be surprised.  But the immediate focus is the actives.
sounds good
are you "teamed up" with jon or are the boards and stuff your own?
what are we talking power wise? 48v or less

Just trying to not oversell things for you while still showing folks there's hope! FYI I just became the owner of paulbaptist's complete AKG set, so I'll have omni caps to test too.  >:D

Edit to add that also means I will be able to do a comp between full bodies vs actives with the cards > R44.

Also, the CK61 caps that eleven is testing with will go to the YS if nobody on this thread wants them. PM me if you're interested.

Naiant has one to. He's just real busy with the tinybox. Patience. Summer is still 3 1/2 months away.

Yesterday it snowed 7 inches where I live.  Though I had snow occasionally at my last house during the official months of summer, so snowfall and summertime are not mutually exclusive.

Brian,

I just sent you a PM 5 minutes ago regarding the possibility of mounting bars for the gefell actives before reading this thread. :coolguy:  Keep up the good work and bring fantasy into the realm of reality!

Team Gefell thanks you!

Off topic of ck6x, but received my ck1x "active cable" today.  Ted/Jon hybrid.  Naiant PFA on one end and Ted fit the lemos on the other.

The lemos don't quite fit as snuggly as I'd like in the audix micro clips after adding a layer of felt but will most likely work for now.

More excited showing off pics here:  http://s1172.photobucket.com/albums/r578/achalsey/AKG%20ck1x%20custom%20active/

Looks nice! Can't wait to hear some samples!

Curious though, what kind of preamp is that?

Yup!  Just picked it up in the YS.   ;D  Had some pictures of the faceplate but they were a little redundant.
