 This is bigger than Ben-Hur for sub $600 source and amp spenders - Fiio is no longer the only 'big bang for your dollar' cat around, and this one offers more fur

 for the money :-)

I don't if I was speaking to Matt over the email correspondence.
 

"We're currently changing our demo IEM design due to some big differences in the quality of sound the demo units were producing and the quality of sound our custom units make.  Unfortunately our demo units were simply not doing our full customs justice (verified by independent listeners), hence we have canned our demo program until further notice."

 

sad.

Anyone from Melbourne kind enough to lend me a HE-6 for demo/mini meet? Can swap a LCD2 for demo :)

I put my name down for an Alo RX3 today at Addicted to Audio.  It is good to be able to support an Aussie business even if it is on the other side of the country.

Only if they stock RX3's!!!  Just kidding. Got to admire anybody that is lucky enough and committed enough to travel to Rocky Mountain Can Jam.

post #355 of 855

Yep..<respect>

 

 

I usually go to Melbourne 2 or 3 times a year for work so am hanging out to nip off to see ADA.

I went half way through the A2A web page where you buy the RX3.  It doesnt tell you that it is not in stock until after the payment page from what I could see?  Does anyone know?

You can demo a pair in store at Jaben in Lonsdale St. They have them well-amped with a First Watt clone speaker amp.

On ALO's site they aren't going to be released until March. I heard a prototype in Tokyo though and it was impressive for a portable amp.

Thats a bugger.. did you think A2A had the amp already before ALO had released it? I just assumed George didn't have it seeing that ALO haven't released it yet. Either way $699 Aussie pesos including postage is pretty good considering ALO's postage rates. He has the HD700 listed as well but that isn't flagged for release in the US until 25th March.

I am not sure about release date through an agent versus release direct from ALO.  Initially I made the enquiry before A2A even had it listed but ALO had it up on their page.  I was hoping that the A2A pricing was the same as the other ALO products in that it is the same price AUD as ALO lists in USD.  Unfortunately the price for the RX3 is $50 higher than the US price.  As you say, this is cancelled out by postage from ALO.

 

I would like to support A2A for supporting our hobby but after waiting approx 4 months already for this amp....it will include many hurt and anxiety units if I am sitting waiting whilst the US soaks in the RX3 goodness.
