Rhines announced the Stage 5 on Facebook today!   It's not the announcement I expected because I heard a new model with three drivers at their store not long ago. It's basically a Stage 3 with more sub-bass. The overall sound was much smoother and the soundstage appeared deeper and not so in-your-face. It sounded really, really amazing and I am...
Tom Yum, care to pick me up in Düsseldorf? :D

Another meet would be great!
 The human ear is not a machine, meaning heard tones and loudness are not absolute.
