Yeah, they are based in China.  Done.

Oh you crazy Aussies and your skinned cats....

Kidding of course! wink.gif

Seriously though, I suspect there are some rather significant differences, but even if there aren't.... China. Nuff said.

Crossover in the adapter?

yes. a digital one (i.e. the dac (or separate dsp?) split and feed separately into each BA)

I guess that means 7 wires if they have a shared ground biggrin.gif ....or 12 if they have a separate ground for each. That'd be a pretty fat cable.

The box, which is smaller than the JH-3A box, has a DAC, software crossover, and amp.  However, if people want to use just the custom IEM without the box, there is an adapter with a traditional passive crossover.  Pretty cool stuff if I do say so myself!

Wow, this seems like it's everything Jerry Harvey utterly failed to deliver with the jh3a.

Mhm.  When you're in China, intellectual property rights become AMBIGUOUS!  :D

My friend showed me this pic which he got from UM's Twitter account. If UM is planning to use all the pins in the hirose, I cant imagine the connector on the CIEM's body

So what will this do that a JHA3 won't?

http://www.jhaudio.com/product/jh-3a-dsp-amp-jh16-pro-custom-ear-monitor idk, sounds pretty similar to me. (along with http://www.jhaudio.com/product/adapter-jh3ajh16-iem )

I'm confused when UM say DAC. That to me implies analog out (not hp), or usb in. This is more of a coax or optical in or something. (I presume the box and xover/box features will be idential to jh3a?)

ps wow the cable does look fat: http://www.jhaudio.com/product/spare-jh3a-iem-cable

Produce music w/o the heart attack of waiting and being lied to while your ear molds become irrelevant?

 

Not to mention actually being a truly active design tied to the dsp, not the work around Jerry came up with because he didn't have permission to make his original design which he claims was his but wasn't his...blink.gif
