New JH Audio flagship! "Siren Series Roxanne" - Page 113

I can't really tell you what it is, but something IS missing.

 

Also I honestly felt that the Roxanne is still bassier than the 13 even with the lowest bass setting,

perhaps the reason comes from my choice of songs when I demo-ed them.

 

Smells like a teen Spirit - Nirvana

Iron Man - Black Sabbath

Enter Sandman - Metallica

Symphony No.5 - Beethoven

Cello Suites No.1 - J S Bach

Les Berceaux - Gabriel Faure

 

(I apologize for my amateur-ish description)

I suspect that they're a bit warmer in the midbass regardless of the low bass difference and that's what you're hearing.

The resistance in the wire is too small to matter it is less than an ohm or so

The resistance in the amp is more and it does not effect the BA S. IT EFFECTS THE CROSS OVER
this is why we. We need low output resistance on the output. I always wondered why myself
Go to the amp thread and read up for a better answer
Not picking at anybody here just giving you the facts

Like I said , If done properly the CF option is a steal for $200.

What I don't understand is they could of started making/preparing for the orders made all the way back in Oct.
JHA had a pretty good idea of how many orders they had pre dec and chose not to do **** and just wait ..wait and wait..
I know the CF option is new but they should of worked it all out before announcing it. Who the hell releases a product for sell without knowing the in and outs of manufacturing it.

Cann't really blame ppl being impatient about all this, as there were lies after lies about what was causing the delay and everyone waiting was left in the dark. All ppl heard was they will start shipping next week...that was 3 weeks ago...
They could of just sent an email to everyone explaining truthfully about the delay and there wont be so much complaints.


I won't be surprised if the CF ones start shipping late Jan...

I also won't be surprised if alot of them needs to be refitted since they haven't even mastered the CF option yet.

i think it is the sound signature of roxanne that makes people think sound bassy even at lowest knob or dap pairing.


i gave it a second hearing, and that is what i feel as i turn the knob up gradually while listening. it is very well implemented. i would say you get stronger bass instead of having extra bass which i find it great on some of my tracks.

I've seen many impressions that states the sound of the Roxanne is super "dense", probably because of the sheer number of drivers. Do you have any comments on that?

Yeah, but it's only a 3-way design, isn't it?

Is that why a crossoverless single driver Etymotic can change it's sig with the addition of a resistor. It affects everything. Drivers may not be the same impedance as each other and their impedances change with frequency as well.

post #1691 of 8306
I thought the same as you my friend and now let me school you as was done for me. The single driver has coil and such has a damping effect like speakers does.
So yes it does effect it. But not for the same reason.

tested on dx50 fw 1.2.2
the roxanne sound has alot of muscle to it. every tone. so i think maybe that why some say its dense. when you listen to a more studio or small area music piece, u may find it dense. if u listen to a wider music piece u wont feel much. i think thats why some prefer to another top brand in this aspect.


imagine a small beach with 3 person. 1 rowing a boat in the sea, 1 riding a stallion galloping along the beach, 1 sitting on the beach watching all and the beautiful seagulls on the sky. imo roxanne is the one riding on the stallion.

I'm looking the one that rides a stallion, watching seagulls, on a boat. :D

You guys complaining about Jh Audio are crazy. If you just left them alone to make the IEMs instead of annoying them with hundreds of emails from impatient people every day maybe they'd get them out sooner.

You can have the CF option in the UIEM, but only on the faceplate.  All roxannes, by the way, ships with the CF/Aluminum box.
