Falcon Acoustics just told me “that Scanspeak have just announced that these tweeters [the Scanspeak D2010/851100 for Naim SL2, DBL and NBL] will be discontinued in 2022.”
Also SBL mk2 i think, i bought a couple last year in anticipation. Thanks Jim!
Thanks for this JimDog.
A great shame, if so. Perhaps a good time to stock up on a spare pair…
For the price it would be remiss not to buy a pair.
I’ve been meaning to have a spare pair standing by for a while. I’ve just ordered some…
Thanks for the heads up Jim I will order a pair tomorrow
Just ordered a couple of pairs, for my DBLs and friends SL2s.
Are they used in the ibls too?
Yes, mine are in the post.
Perhaps this last minute rush of sales may lead them to think there is a market to continue making them
I believe the IBLs use Scanspeak D2008/851100 tweeters.
I will be getting a spare for mine too.
As far as I can see there is also the Hiquphon OW2-92 Tweeter but it’s a lot more expensive but supposed to be better.
The Hiquphon would not be right for the Naim speakers.
Thanks Richard, is the Scanspeak D2008/851100 also used in the SBL?
I’m having trouble (could be alcohol related) in finding that exact match on their website, would @Richard.Dane perhaps allow a link in this case or else could you send me an email to the address in my profile?
Thanks for the heads up. I just ordered a pair.
On the scanspeak site both the 2008 and 2010 are shown as ‘to be updated’, not as ‘to be discontinued’.
Rather than searching by the model number, try searching by Naim (SBL, etc.), and the proper item will appear. Worked for me.
About two month ago I also read, that those two models will be replaced with improved materialls without need to tweek the x overs.
The spesifications will be the same, but they will use better matrial.
