Thanks for your impressions.

 

 

...the trouble is... if you were listening to the Roxannes with the bass boosted to halfway, then perhaps this may have had an influence on subjective perception of instrument seperation etc., which would be quite influenced by relative levels of midrange and treble.

For sure.  I simply didnt have the time to compare with different bass settings, plus the 2 IEMs were in different stores, and I was actually under the impression that the mid-point setting was the default tuning of the IEMs, not an added boost.  

 

That being said, I think atleast the attack/decay bit was valid, as that was done listening to "Danse Macabre", which is very mid/uppers oriented.   But yes, separation and overall tonal balance will indeed depend on the bass settings, so you are correct.

Well, I actually got a pair of ear impressions done, so atleast one of these is in my not-too-distant future!

 

I am hoping for 10-20% off sale on one of these around Christmas or early Jan - that will help me make a decision!

Only one pair of the bass drivers is controlled. The others have a fixed gain position so the 2 pairs would need separate pos. wires. Could be a mix of where the crossover resides with smaller components still in the shell but remember that Jerry also said that after market cables from other makers would definitely be available.

I had another listen yesterday at the e-earphone festival and my impression was that they sounded like an IEM version of a pair of Audezes (both the custom demo and universal version). 

 

The bass and treble controls are logarithmic pots, so the most changes will be noticeable near the end of their travel.

"Treble" controls? I thought roxanne only had bass controls.

That is a question that will lead to debate here
First off budget
Portible desktop or home rig
Next space for the unit
Next how do you plan to use DAC.
Example CPU , or CD player

Personally, I'd like to upgrade from my cowon j3 since it doesn't seem to play ball with 24 bit flac files. I want a portable standalone/single unit DAP which will drive the Roxanne happily by itself, can take sdhc cards, and doesn't have a painfully bad UI, for sub £500. Does such a thing exist?

As for the jh3a. Jh audio or vender needs to make the cable. And other than the cable I cannot see why not. However I did read in this thread that jerry Harvey
Was asked and did not say yes. That's all I got .
