I'm particularly fond of this one on the Savant
I've found all Noble IEMs to work well with sub par sources, but scale extremely well as you upgrade the rest of the audio chain. I don't think I've heard the full potential of the Katana & K10 yet, but... Well, see my signature.
I don't own the K10UA, but the custom version instead.The K10 is like your favourite drink, be it single malt scotch, vodka on the rocks or in my case, Pepsi Max (don't judge me!).

But then if I switch to something electronic that benefits from a less "in you face" but still...
Well, being busy at work isn't too bad when I've got these keeping me company:
Hey - chopped liver ain't bad!  I'm hella busy at my new job, so having two loonies with a triple-flagship fleet on this thread is a cool thing. Should we work out a schedule or something?
As soon as I have my Encores, I'll be doing a comparison between the Noble Flagships: K10, Katana & K10 Encore
