at RMAF 2012!!  But NOT just because of the gear.  PLS check out the review...

Are the FAD prototype phones you are referring to the $8000 stainless-steel Muramassa VIII?

Found the answer to my question.

In a head-fi thread on the subject of the Muramasa VIII.

It seems the Muramasa project was shelved, with a handful or so or even fewer exemplars seeing the

light.

What tamahome77 was so impressed with is a series of plastic headphones FAD is developing.

The top price for the phones in this series is said to be $1,250.

And - as per tamahome77's auditon as posted to the Muramas VIII thread - better than both the $2000

Fostex TH900 and the $2000.LCD-3.

FAD says  it will come.out early next year.

ThanX!!  I put alot into that article.

Wait til you guys see my piece in The Daily Swarm.com this Friday!  I give ALL of you credit, and Jude, for helping to educate me on this spectacular sonic voyage into a new audio frontier - and that after fifteen years in the high end audio and music industries!!!!

 

You guys are the stars of the article (about CanJam/RMAF, and personal audio).  I'm also taking a bit of a chance here, as it's a -I'm not holdin' back sh__- type of piece where I say things that the old guard may not like,  But, f___ that.  My duty as an audio journalist is to report on the PRESENT.  Some people are simply clueless about the fact that the world is shrinking; physically (think living space) and digitally!  Well, I LOVE analog too (I'm not referring to just digital music playback here, but the digital revolution).  Well, I could go on..  But I'm psyched to give you all your due, from a person who's dedicated most of his life to the pursuit of state-of-the-art music reproduction for the home!!
