To be honest, I trust his decisions and how it feels about the project and I have perfect experience with him, so as I said, if he didn't believe it wouldn't be as good as the SE5way he dreamed, it is better not to make it then the sound you will get will not be as good as what it is supposed to be.

 

The process is same for everybody, we also used the same protocol so it is not something special case for you.

 

While I agree with many users, SE5way is just something pretty unmatchable, it doesn't mean all other monitors are crap. There are plenty of nice things out there, it is best to decide what kind of sound signature you are looking for, then choose a monitor in that sense. For example if you like JH's sound so much, I am not even sure you would be happy with SE5way. JH is rather cold, analytical apparently. Quite bright too. I would call SE5way slightly warm-ish, very rich and organic. Kind of opposite or something like that.

 

Anyway I believe we shouldn't derail the thread with SE5way, since people are waiting for Roxanne impressions :beerchug:

Yes long live the Roxanne and thanks for the input. I think I am just a spoiled pig in this anyway. Enjoy them. And thanks

According to JH that the Roxanne (both customs and universal) is delayed because of the cable manufacturing. I wonder when my universal Roxanne will arrive.

What retailer took your pre-order on the Roxanne (universal)?

[It will be the day after you leave to go away on business , or vacation , or move. It is general how it goes for me. I own a home in NYC and in North Carolina. The Moment I leave for one that's when the package comes to the other house.

I needed fuses from ps audio for my Pwd mkii. And guess where they went ?? Not here . I did not know they even had the other address. Lol

This is true. Jerry confirmed himself at the Mook event. The cable is thicker than the usual CIEM cable when I tried out the Roxanne obviously due to the additional conductor. Someone mentioned the cable is also a silver-plated copper not just pure copper.

 

They have no issue making the Roxanne so the first batch of orders should be shipped soon as the cable arrives. Hopefully soon and should not affect BF sale orders which are expected to ship mid to end of January.

Great way to steer the thread.  By the way, Jerry also confirmed that we can also have customizations (face plate, shell color) with the universal Roxanne, but no CF shell since he said the nozzle is too small for CF.  He didn't say it's impossible. He only said that it won't be possible for now.

If you email them (or call them actually would be better I think) they may be able to change your order...may still be time for a change.  Wont know unless you ask right?

post #1512 of 8278
That is true but the cf is a style I do not have after all. But thanks for the idea.
post #1513 of 8278

Heck, I just thought of something, calling them and saying you want to change your order would be a good way to see how far along they are with it...:veryevil: Heh...

Yeah you can still call them.  CF has been what most people are getting. Expensive upgrade, but a beauty to behold.  It doesn't do anything for the sound though, just aesthetics.
