I am currently using a 208 Sigma in a
TQWP that was built for Lowthers. It sounds a lot
different than a Lowther. The bottom end is stronger, but
it lacks the mid range magic and the high end is less
The website for Fostex shows that they are 168.00 plus
shipping each. That would make a pair somewhere around
350.00 I paid 416.00 for a pair from Japan.
Overall, the sound from a 208 Sigma is a real bargain.
For 350.00,a pair of these is hard to beat. I like them
more than PM 2C's, but not as much as 2A's.
