Wow that's Exactly how I felt !


Well I found a cheap way to import CKR9 Ltd from Singapore store - £145 delivered minus duty tax

@Huxley I think you are right but it's going to be difficult without my Trance fix longer it goes.
Going to wait out on more Duoza and CKR9LTD reviews.

Wow that's not bad, still more than double of the current price of EPH100 though and with import tax you can add another £30 on top. So the total would roughly come to what I paid for the Ortofon eQ-5 like 3 years ago.

Douza would be cheaper but the hugeness of them just puts me off, just looks like there is no way to get deep insertion with them. Also from what I keep reading the Douza have rather relaxed treble like the Tenore, maybe even more so. That will not help with the energy that's needed to make listening to Trance fun and engaging.

Thanks I saw that already. Unfortunately it does not answer our one question - can the Duoza do better 3D stereo separation than eph100 with Trance genre ?
I'm guessing the lack of answer is no.
Need to get further opinions.

BTW seen this eph100 v crk9 ltd ?
Very interesting.. Need little more confirmation on 3D stereo with Trance and I'm sold. I really want there to be something like the eph100 and More.

I've had all three of those iems. The 9LTD is better than EPH100 in stereo separation, sound stage and frequency balance, but the CKR10 is slightly worse than EPH100 in separation and sound stage, but similar frequency balance. 9LTD bass is much tighter and more detailed than EPH100, and mids and highs are more detailed and balanced due to tight bass. Overall 9LTD is great for Trance, better than CKR10 and EPH100.,

Yeah I mentioned that too in my post.

Thanks for the CKR9LTD quote. Shame that they are over triple the price of EPH100.

Not of much use really, it's a bit subjective as i have phones here that sound 'better'

But still don't match the eph100 for trance, not anywhere near it for me.

 

We need a trance addict to give us an appraisal, then i'll make the move like you did

I agree.

Right now I'm loving my X3 + EPH100 like never before!

I'm guessing that @T.R.A.N.C.E. is a Trance-phile and hence his name.
One of the reasons I have taken good notice of his comparison.
