OK, just to clarify, so given the fact that I have ordered CF customs, I am in for an undetermined long wait, unless I change to acrylic? Right?

Theyre starting to ship customs this week. Mine are CF and may ship end of the week. Though I did order once I heard the news from head-fi tv.

So there's a CF delay for some? but not others?

I'm going for a lie down. I can't figure it out!

I think you can be quite confident of it being UV-tolerant, since many laminating resins these days are UV-tolerant as part of their standard specification.

Errr... I got that first-hand info from JH Audio themselves, there IS a CF Universal Roxanne.

Just as many of us already suspected...

 

I think it would've been better if they'd been upfront about it. There's no shame in telling customers they're having a hard time with the CF manufacturing process (I'm actually impressed that they're doing such intricate CF work). What does p1$$ people off is if they pretend everything's OK, and only admit it when pushed.

 

 

I wonder if it might be better for JHA to simply apologise to customers and withdraw the CF option altogether. A well-made acrylic CIEM looks just fine (great, actually). They know how to do acrylic work, and can catch up with the backlog far more efficiently that way.

 

Honesty generally tends to be the best policy...

100% completely and totally agree. If it is true, then the Roxanne is not for me.

 

As I mentioned earlier in the thread, I absolutely cannot understand the point of having adjustable bass response if it doesn't encompass a 'neutral' option/setting within the range of adjustability.

 

 

However, since there seems to be some disagreement about the neutrality / lack of neutrality, I shall continue to await in-depth reviews before I conclude that the Roxanne really is unsuitable for me.

I apologize! I thought Mr Harvey said the CF option along with the CF case was an exclusive option for the custom model. Thanks for the correction.

*Hifiman?
*Rocoo?

I find it slightly north of neutral with the HM-901 and really neutral with the AK120. Your inputs would be greatly appreciated.

Did you use the balanced or IEM amp card...?

I am currently considering buying a 901 but I am not sure if I should buy the balanced or IEM card...? which one would you recommend?

Okay from what I understand the varying bass thing is actually kind of like a variable resistor which reduces the amount of current going to the bass drivers. So that means the cable resistor design defines the amount of bass you're going to get. So technically with the high enough resistance you can get no frequency response from the bass drivers at all. That also means aftermarket cables or any other cable jerry designs would be able to alter the range of bass amount by using different types of resistors.

Mmmmmm... I suppose so.... yes, that is a fair point.

 

I'd be reluctant to chance it, but your logic is...ermm... well, logical.

 

 

I'm still sitting on the fence:

I did use the IEM amp card since I mainly use IEMs. I do am loving the sound from them...

From what Jerry told me, the bass knob starts at -0.5db at 8 oclock, 0db at 9 and max at 15db at 4 oclock

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSqHOo32gz8---- Jerry stating 0 to 15db at max boost

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_G62IGzJE0     3:50-> again 0 to 15 db... nothing about a minus... :)

Never rely on a salesman to tell you the whole truth, especially when they are also making the product they are selling...

 

They are too strongly motivated to tell you what they think you want to hear.
