“My personal journey into the realm of music reproduction in the IEM realm owes very much to the guidance of Takai-san, who was the inspiration and driving force behind Final Audio Design, through his offerings by way of his creations.

“I was browsing through a (bogus) fire sale at Dick Smith (Australian electronics retailer) today and spotted Sennheiser MX365 ear buds (white) for AUD8.99.

In FAD-speak: "Piano Forte IX archived to produce space expression which bring atmosphere of live hall and a sense of reality of concert hall which is difficult to be produced by conventional earphones.
