Tough nuts!

 

Anyway yes I want aluminum nuts with a nice long cable.

I'm trying to wrap my head around the balanced v unbalanced issue.

What needs to be done to use the Roxanne in a balanced configuration? New cable with another wire and super nuts?

If I went down the road of the AK240, the plug terminates in a 2.5mm end? Almost assuredly this is an aftermarket cable set up?

That can rival the HD800?
Of course sound quality is also obviously a given.

No I.E.M. can reproduce the size of the HD800's soundstage. The tiny drivers of IEMs are not capable of doing this. The I.E.M.s also tend to lack good treble.

+10. Speakers. headphones. IEMS. THAT is the way it is
I use my IEMS every day they very convent little buggers
And they have great quality. But anyone who thinks
They are better or camparible. To a really good head
Like the hd800. Is fooling them selves or just nieve
No attract just the facts. I have ten pairs of IEMS.

Drivers size has nothing to do with it. It's the location of the output. Any headphone has an artificial enough perspective that I don't concern myself with it other than focus and pan.

I thought brass was the standard...

I think it does, that is also why the headphones with the 20 mm drivers have inferior soundstage compared to the headphones with for instance 50 mm drivers. The concave shape of the diaphragm of the electrodynamic drivers also plays a role in creating a proper soundstage. 'Location of the output' as you say may also play a role. I'll check on that, thanks.

What about those planar magnetic headphones? I don't think they work on a concave principle.

Another FYI for those thinking about switching from CF -> acrylic.  

 

Just got a note from Corbyn that mine will ship the week of the 17th.  I put in the request earlier this week, was in the BF queue.

 

Also for everyone else:

 

"Also, I am going to provide you a clear cable instead of the black for now as we had a bad batch of plastic collars. "

Did the same, mine comin in next Tuesday. Can't wait. Not sure if it will come with CF case or plain round. Honestly, I don't care much.

Also ordered with clear cable. It just look better. But I am planning to upgrade it to 3rd party cable anyway.

I'm not sure why everyone is so obsessed with the idea of sound stage in IEMs of all things. If you're worried about that, don't spend silly amounts of money trying to achieve greater sound stage through different headphones, especially IEMs where driver placement will be virtually identical between different models. Your perception of the stereo image will be far, far more affected by your source. If you want good sound stage, use binaural recordings or invest in a decent crossfeed system. That will be orders of magnitude more effective and hugely cheaper.

Have you received any word on your CF order? I think you are one of the next orders to receive them...
I am also interested to see whether there are a lot of non-BF orders between Oct-BF... Especially CF's
post #3494 of 7751
Not a word I am last week October and my order was posted a few pages back. I have herd nothing.
If and when I will post about them.
And jim land big plus one man. When I post it some say I am crazy. It's not that they have no staging they do but not to the example that some people dream of.

Hi Roxanne ower.

 

I'm just curious about people who receive their Roxanne, what is your setting of the control box?

 

Thanks:popcorn:
