You and me both. I'm currently happily enjoying my IM70. If Pistons turn out to be the end-all-be-all I will buy them.

All psyched after the concert, gotta post some more, Steve Bernstein in his various bands, really needs to be seen live, but you get some idea. Henry Butler is amazing-sounds like what you'd get if you crossed Professor Longhair and Phineas Newborn (or, to use 2 somewhat more well known examples, though not quite as accurate an analogy, crossing Dr John and Oscar Peterson…). A true original, Bernstein defers to him in this band…it's built around him, the other 8 players take his music and expand/add punch (though, as you can see from the solo piano, he has plenty of punch on his own). Great show!

That's the problem I have with all single BA sets I've tried as well. Unless you throw a triple flange on it and shove it halfway through your skull, bass is seriously lacking.

 

Coming up on 25 days of Piston slow boat waiting. Still better than paying a higher shipping cost than the actual cost of the item.

 Best stuff of the show:  Vali, Asgard II, Fostex TE05, Geek, Vanatoo, Lau, Teton, LcdX ($800 too much though), dBel's LCD3 modded.  Sanders and Venture speakers.
 
 
Pretty decent: RHA 750 (Fostex TE05 kills it though), Phillips headphones, Woo WES and Monoblocks (not even as bad as some competitor lunatic fanboys say).

 

^ From the same fools that hyped the Schiit Vali, those anal mofos seems to know what they are talkin' about. :)

 

edit: mo' fun stuff. ;)

What model is this magic fostex iem? For $100 it might be worth playing with. How would you compare it to UERMs, Mike?

 

TE-05.  I think the suggested retail will be $129 if I heard right.  I would need more time to AB before diving down that rabbit hole.  It's supremely clean, clear and refined sounding.  No noticeable grain, artifacts or other wierdness that would otherwise scream out for attention.  It's neutral without being overly warmed and veiled, nor bright and analytical.  I think it would lose out on resolution, SS, imaging, top/bottom extension but win on overall tonal signature and balance, perhaps clarity, coherency and refinement.  Take that with a grain of salt until a real production unit shows up that I can compare directly over time.

Vocal pitch and slight variations in breathing, microdetails on strings such as the sliding of fingers on frets, and approximately how much force used by the artist to pluck the strings can be made out with ease on these.. Needless to say these have more than separated themselves from everything I own they have quickly become my reference for sound.

 

Sure a good IEM brings these things out more, but one should always be able to hear them if one's listening properly and the recording is decent. Hell, one could hear them in the days of cassette players and earbuds too.

The FAD Heaven IV is an exception to this. Nice ample bass.

Before you quoted me pages and pages after my conversation, lets make it clear what I didn't hear 1Plus2 do and what I bolded in Dsnuts post. below.

There, it looks a little clearer now for the members wouldn't you say? rather than you making out I meant his entire post?


And now, you can hear it on cassette players and earbuds.... Oh my, this thread does offer some entertainment.

Oh, sorry if you feel misrepresented... but it actually makes no difference to my point. I doubt DS meant that you can measure the number of Newtons applied to the string, he was saying you can hear how hard it's being plucked. Which, as I said, has always been the case for those who listen carefully.
