So the local Beat Audio dealer recently announced that they were carrying the whole line of Beat Audio (not Wan Xuan) customs. I took a look at them, and they're ridiculous. Just insanity.
I think someone else mentioned it before, but Beat Audio really does have a 14-driver custom, a 12-driver custom, etc. The higher end models also have the option for being configured in a 'TT-X' fashion, which uses a proprietary three-pin connector, which I can only assume uses negative and positive polarity with a ground in the middle.
However, they never mention how they map the drivers (which ones to high/mid/low) or how the TT-X 'technology' works. They just describe the sound as being superior to their conventional counterparts.
While I know Beat Audio cables have a decent reputation, I keep wondering why they choose to go with a non-disclosure type of marketing when the majority of the industry fully discloses the materials they use. They don't like publicizing the materials they use for their cables (even though it's not hard to guess) and now they don't like to disclose how they're designing their customs. It was the same with that 'FST Technology' pushed in the Wan Xuan...
I don't get it.
Oh, and these customs --- filthy expensive.
