Rhapsodio - A Unique Place Indeed
I am going to start this thread by saying i have no affiliation with this company whatsoever and just want to share with you guys what they offer. I don't normally have a disclaimer like this but i feel it would be a bit odd not to in this circumstance because i guess this will look like blatant advertisement.
How i stumbled across them is rather odd. I got a facebook friend request from a girl/women and i just thought it was so from my sixth form college as i have been getting a lot and of them and left it for a few days. When i got round to reviewing the requests i found that she had a picture of an awesome looking universal IEM as her cover photo and knew this was not someone from college.
This was the picture:
This is a single dynamic CIEM ;)
I am sure this image will help with you join my bewilderment but once i looked on the page there was just pictures of gear, amps cables and CIEMs like i had never seen before and i was just wowed. Now at the time i did not notice but she was sharing all these pictures from a Rhapsodio but then i got an email saying she had sent me a link to the Rhapsodio facebook page which had all the pictures from her facebook page and i realised that it was a small, unique asian hi fi shop.
Anyways i soon found the website for prices and here are the products that stood out for me the most.
Meji Exclusice iPod Dock Amp
There is currently no information up on the site about this at the moment other than that it is coming soon and will cost a whopping $400 which just adds more to the mystery about it. Anyway i have always had this as a concept in my head but never seen it done, you may have but i think it looks really cool.
Meji Cool 5
The real excitement about this is not really physical but more what it boasts. Its a balanced amp with high grade internal according to the sales pitch. Now it is the price that reall got me excited because it is $1100 and that is more expensive than any of the most highly reccomended stuff that i have ver seen. The PCB looks packed but i can not tell if that is a good thing but maybe you can.
Op-amps are - OPA111BM (BUF) , OPA637BM (main opamp) , and OPA2107SM used
Meji Z2 (DIY Option Available)
This not only the cheapest balanced amp i think i have ever seen but the smallest and the best looking.I cant think how they managed a balanced circuit this small and it is only $160 for the DIY kit but they do charge a rather big $250 to make it for you and include the Zippo lighter casing which is just awesome. I always though cMoys were cool with the altoids case but what is cooler than a retro Zippo lighter! Oh and it is a tiny balanced amp, did i mention that? (i will be getting one of these with one of their mono crystal copper balanced cables).
Now there are many cool looking IEMs on there facebook page but i know nothing of them but from there website this hybrid CIEM looks pretty rad.
Rhapsodio Custom Hybrid Monitor
A new hybrid CIEM to wow at with the vent in the nozzle!
6mm dynamic with ba 30017
Custom Monitor R-5
These are a 5BA CIEM for a extremely cheap price of just $400. Now i doubt you can get a 5BA CIEM anywhere near as cheap as that anywhere else and thats whats just great. If it sounds good i dunno, maybe you should find out, if you give them an email maybe they can ship worldwide for you as well! You got to know a bargain when you see one ;)
Anyway, they also offer a many other stuff from other CIEMs too cables and other DIY amps from MiuAudio. They also sell DIY parts such as UE and Shure pin connectors which are hard to come across from what i have seen and heard and it is just goof un looking at the site and there stuff, i would also recommend checking out there facebook page.
Here is the website:
Their Facebook Fanpage for more exciting stuff:
If any of you guys do get any of the stuff then comment other this way!
