For Sale:
UM Merlin + Pico slim + TWag LOD and cable

Will Ship To: Anywhere

For sale is my current portable rig. I love it but now it's not getting much headtime and I need the money for my desktop system setup.

 

1. Sales Pending...UM Merlin 5 driver hybrid custom IEM.

It's just 5 months old, with a plenty of warranty remaining (19 months). 

If you are not familiar with it, here's a nice detailed review here written by Project86: http://www.head-fi.org/t/566965/review-unique-melody-merlin-hybrid-dynamic-balanced-armature-custom-iem

I recabled it with a 48" TWag v1 OM cable with straight Oyaide plug, which is brought new from a head-fier here 6 months ago. After 6 months of usage, it still looks very nice. Imho, this one is not subject to the 'tuning green' problem that some people claimed to have experienced with their TWag v1 cables.

 

It will come with the beautiful UM case, the original cable, cleaning tool, carrying case, warranty card, and FR graph.

 

For US buyers, you will have to contact Stephen (http://www.custom-iem.com/) to send the Merlin along with your ear impressions to Unique Melody for a reshell. In my previous experiences, Stephen is a very nice guy to deal with. I've heard that UM has good service in Europe and Australia too. Also, due to the uniqueness of the hybrid design, I don't think others  will be able to do a good reshell job of it. 

 

2. pico SLIM portable amp.

It's 6 months old, brought new from Headamp. It doesn't have the lifetime battery warranty, but you still have a 2.5 year warranty remaining on all parts and labor.

It stayed in the leather case for the first 3 months until I decided to thin it a bit to increase the comfort in my pocket. I brought some iPad screen protectors from http://www.clearprotector.com/ and cut it to fit on the pico. You could see the protector layer clearly on one of the pictures. The amp itself has no scratches or dents.

It also comes with a TWag side exit LOD with angled Oyaide plug, which was brought together with the cable mentioned above.

 

This will come with the leather case and Headamp warranty card. You will NOT get the USB charging cable as I don't have any, I charged it with my phone's charger.

 

The whole system cost me around $1500 not including the ear molds and shipping. Now I'm asking $OLD including Paypal fee and shipping via USPS with insurance (CONUS only). 

I would like to sell the system all together. However, if you'd like to buy the IEM or the amp separately, it's fine.

Price for the Merlin + TWag cable is $OLD

Price for the pico slim + TWag LOD is $OLD

I'm not interested in selling the cables separately.

International buyers please PM me for quotes on additional shipping cost.

 

If you have any further questions, feel free to ask.

 

One last obvious thing: the iPod touch in the pictures is not included :p

If you would like to make a deal, I'm in Montreal, Canada and I would be interested in discussing further.
