I wouldn't really say that I deserve the ASG-2. What I will say is that I would be honored to win the 001 serial ASG-2.
As with almost everyone on this site, music is a major player in my life. My music library consists of about 1,600 handpicked songs that could easily be the soundtrack to my life. What I want from my gear is for them to be a window that lets me fully enjoy my music.
My perfect earphones would be impeccably balanced - not the weak Etymotic idea of balance, but a sound signature that emphasizes nothing, yet can capably produce the range beautifully. The thing about modern audiophiles is that they forget that bass response is an essential part of music reproduction. Fortunately, you guys at Aurisonics didn't. Along with great mids and smooth, refined treble, the ASG-1 v1.2 had simply the best bass response I've heard from anything in the audio world.
I spoke with Dale over the summer about whether or not it would be worth it to sell a kidney to get the ASG-2. What he told me got me excited. I learned that the AS-2 series uses the same great driver from the AS-1, but adds in special balanced armatures to supplement the highs. This is perfect for me because that would basically mean a more balanced and capable ASG-1, bringing my audio dreams to fruition.
So, why do I want the very first ASG-2 (or any ASG-2 at all, it really doesn't matter to me )?
It would finally be the catalyst that would forever ban me from this site where wallets come to die. I'd stop being broke from buying earphones I really don't need, and I could start to put money aside for the hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt accrued from my pharmacy school education.
Whaddya say, Aurisonics?
Fiio E10 DAC out to the Fiio E11 amp via line out. Simple, cost-effective, and works great.
Fed by my laptop. I call her Sweetness.
