Other than that almost all my time was spent chatting with folks on the Noisy Motel stand, explaining that I'm not an employee so don't know prices and constantly asking Billy how much stuff costs so I could tell them. It was fun, but a bit challenging when some guy tried to bargain with me and didn't get that I don't work there! :D

 

As for hiss on the wooden amp, it was dead silent with the Miracles which are almost the most sensitive IEMs I've owned.

 

Regarding the Miracles, you said you like the extra bass of the AX-60s so I think you'd prefer the JH13s (from what I've been told about them) because they've got a little more bass and are also apparently more accurate than the Miracles. The local UM service is appalling so I'd recommend anything but their IEMs if there are others that suit. You could order through an overseas supplier though I suppose.

Worst customer service ever!

 

Finally answered one of my 20 emails after 2 months... Even if UM makes the best IEM I wouldn't buy it unless they up their game in the CS department. It was a complete nightmare and they sent me a tracking number after my Miracles arrived. There was also no signature and they just left it at my door where anybody could have taken them.

I sent my moulds to UM in a Pelican case - they took 14 weeks to get my IEM back to me, and the Pelican case was gone.. But instead they gave me a smaller (cheaper) Westone IEM vault "Because I was so patient". Yeah.

 

Anyway, I wanted to check out some of the Denon stuff - I'm a big fan of my D5000 (I know, I know. Fostex and all that.)

And spot on regarding my thoughts on the AX60 bass - I love it. The Miracles have a dynamic driver for their bass, don't they? (Just going from memory).

They have 2 BAs for each section. 

 

For some reason, UM shipped the IEMs with a round case that wasn't there before to me first and then shipped me the box a week or so later :confused:.

Yeah, I've had some random stuff like that with UM including receiving some completely unrelated (i.e. different brand) CIEMs that belonged to someone else!! That was UM Aus' fault, not UM Labs in China.

 

As lin said, the Miracles are a 6-driver (3-way) design. The Merlins are the model with the hybrid design.

Yes. I could tell the whole story, but you already understand what it's like to deal with them...

Indeed, I do...

 

Never again!
