I actually asked about your customs not universal, but to clarify, you will use tubes and retune each custom depending on space volume and shape, or you will use tubes and errr do nothing about the varying cavity size D ?

 

I am sorry I missed that one entirely!

 

We would do what is necessary in tuning the cavity to maintain the sound signature, but by adding sound tubes from our experience, the sound will not be as balanced/ coherent sounding as universal fit. I hope that answers your question.

=) makes sense. Thanks. I was waiting for TWFK + dynamic hybrid at a reasonable price to come out frown.gif . back to waiting biggrin.gif

nope they won't do custom tuning for each merlin. one xo fits all.

in fact, I highly doubt the difference in sound between 2 custom iems exceeds that of universal which is caused by the peculiar shape of the middle ear.

I would like to know how the T1 amp compares to something like a Pico slim for those IEMs.

Ooh now that is interesting. Have they given universal IEM prices? I was hoping for a $750 introductory CIEM price...

K3003 also use a TWFK by the way, and merlin so they are not the first!

Not exactly sure who here claimed to be the first but insightful nonetheless. Goes to prove how same technology can be implemented in different ways. Did you find those Sydney meet impressions/posts O.P?

Svyr was saying how there Is finally a TWFK and dynamic combo. Merlin has 2 aha!

you misunderstood. i obviously meant one twfk + dynamic for a custom/universal.

didn't realize k3003 was twfk + dynamic. (or more specificaly twfk for mids and highs)

i was saying - i wish there was a reasonably priced 1 twfk + dynamic combo wink.gif (5-600)

I see, thanks.

Oh okay, fair enough and yes K3003 is TWFK, The merlin can be had these days for near that price and has 2 TWFk and a dynamic so can be done.

 

But i get what your saying

So is the amp worth it...since for $229 (assuming the post before is correct) i'm willing to try some good stuff

post #56 of 5110

UNLOCKED! ..Yeh I think it would be worth it. I might give both a try. I emailed the Traslucent Audio rep and I think they said that although the Triad L3 is on "another level" apparently (they sell the Triad also) the T1 performs remarkably well for the price. It was tuned with the philosophy that it sounds "as real music should sound". And being portable and for such a reasonable price - I want to test this out. 

 

EDIT: put in actual quotes from email

I'll be demoing the Triad in the near future so I'll be glad to leave some impressions (possibly a review on it too ;).

That's a subjective thing. It will come down to weather you think it is worth it or not. I personally do think the T1 amp is worth that price FWIW. Otherwise I wouldn't be selling my O2 to fund it :P lol.

That would be a very interesting read but I am thinking maybe I might pull the trigger on the T1....while they have these introductory prices I mean

Well if you do pull the trigger on it I look forward to your impressions :).
