It shouldn't be "merit." It should be a little gold star.

In a similar vein, running two AD797s in parallel lowers THD. A similar thing happens here. It's not half as much distortion, or twice as loud, because none of that addition is perfect, but it helps. You get twice the back volume but the same type of bass signature, with slightly faster transients because each diaphragm travels with less amplitude. If we remember Mr. Gustav Kirchoff, the current traveling across each receiver is halved. Total DC resistance is halved.

 

 

This is a comparison between a 2600 (navy blue) and 2800 (aquamarine).

 

As you can see, the bass sensitivity is increased about +9 dB.

 

Less obvious is that you can see that the resonance peaks and nulls are sharper and better defined on the 2800, which I attribute to a tighter acoustic response overall.

I bought the adaigo 3.. And I hate to say this but it is the worst iems I have ever listened to. Hollow bloated bass, weak mids and sibilant recessed highs. Sounds like listening to music in a deep well. Might be good for those who likes a darker signature with loads of bass. It's the only final audio product I have tried so I'm not bashing the brand here. I think they have many interesting products bit the adaigo 3 was a big let down for me.

The Adagio V or Heaven II might be better for you. The Adagio II and III are cheaply made too.

The same thing can be said for the Piano Fortes too, if you're using the conventional benchmark.

Just stopping by to say...

 

R.I.P. Kanemori Takai

 

His unconventional genius will be missed.

Final Audio Design will never be the same, but he has left behind a legacy of amazing products.

RIP Takai-san, I thoroughly enjoyed the Heaven Series of IEMs, and to this day remain my favourite BA IEMs. 

 

May his legacy live on, he will be missed dearly.

RIP Takai-san.

post #4045 of 5873

RIP Takai-san. His commitment to excellence and quality was a huge inspiration for us at Astell&Kern. He will be truly missed by all. :(

Aw man. That legit bums me out, I was so in love with the Hope VI I was stoked to see what he'd come up with later. :(

 

Speaking of, as a man who loves his Hope VI, is there an IEM that they make that would be basically an in-ear version of that? 

post #4047 of 5873

R.I.P., Mr. Takai. Met the guy twice over at the two Mook festival last years. I am not the biggest fan of his IEM, but I do enjoy his full size.

In Memoriam: Final Audio’s Kanemori Takai

 

Great writeup by tomscy2000 on the man that, for many of us, was synonymous with Final Audio Design.
