Fantastic Feastrex Speaker Experience

Yamanashi is one of beautiful prefecture in Japan.

Not far from Mount Fuji and has many great fruit farms that so interesting.

Feastrex company located near the mountain in Nirasaki city.

The owner, Akiyama-san also do business with forest and rare mushrooms too.

He is smart guy and has so many special knowledge especially electronics & music too.

Feastrex word came from "Feast" that mean Celebration and "Rex" that mean King.

So "Feastrex" mean Celebration of the King!

Main specialty of Feastrex is field coil electromagnet speaker and only single driver

fullrange speaker in bass reflex cabinet.

You can see his website here http://www.feastrex.jp/indexeng.html

In my opinion, sound of this system is nice transient, dynamic with minor detail

and tone of every music instruments are real & joyful cause from missing crossover network.

Compare with his AlNiCo version, field coil easily won in micro details & sound stage

but AlNiCo still better than others in fullrange league.

Nice experience for me and my Japanese friend : Kubota-san.

Got more ideas and techniques back home. ;)


Main room with many speakers.


Prototype speakers & parts. 


Beautiful cone from "Washi" paper.


Interesting audio system!


EMT-930st, very nice quality and sound.


Sony SACD player and custom preamplifier.


CV4055 Push pull tube amplifier with all FineMet core transformers.


Field coil power supply with FineMet core transformers & chokes, film capacitors and SiC diodes.
