$999 Calyx M with DXD + DSD, 64GB + SD + µSD storage - Page 103

post #1531 of 5549

$850 isn't as low as I had hoped but I suppose that I will go for it. Really I can't resist.

 

As for this 35 overnight posts of anti-slider bollocks, I am starting to worry that they might actually listen and change it. That would be unfortunate. I'm not sure the planet has seen a bigger example of ill-placed group hysteria since the Salem witch trials. In my view, the "we're all clumsy dudes in disco pants" concern is utter nonsense.

 

Just my two cents as always.

until I hear about the real world SQ I'm not tempted away from the DX100. Storage excellent, full marks on that, but battery life may  well be mediocre and unless the sound quality is outstanding and it can power headphones unamped, I'm not in yet...

I didn't see any description of warranty support within say the US.  Have they explained how they are handling any warranty issues?  I don't want to go through return shipping outside of the country.  They can make arrangements with DHL and get the item here probably for a reasonable fee but going back to Korea just doesn't make sense.  If there isn't any in country warranty, I can't see this as an option.

I think you're willfully overstating the degree to,and spirit in, which it was stated :wink:, but that's cool - we're all entitled to our different opinions.

 

Wish I still had my old Lloytron cassette walkman, as I'd very much like to lend it to you so you could experience the joy of a 'Russian Roulette' volume slider control.

 

Anyway, please note that in spite of my steadfast misgivings about that aspect of the ergonomics, I am one of the most optimistic people here, WRT the likely SQ of the M, and I do want to see it succeed in the marketplace.

 

I'm looking forward to seeing plenty of SQ impressions about it, in the coming weeks.

if it sounds as good as or equal enough to the AK240 there will be plenty of people (including me) buying it regardless of its innovative volume control.

 

 

Calyx, if you are still reading this thread and you honestly believe your SQ is that good then please ship a unit urgently to a respected reviewer so the word can get out. (and calm the mob)

Interesting that Calyx updated their facebook page saying that some people don't seem to like the magnetic slider but Korean do. Well if they expect to sell it globally, they'll all have to like it else it will be a Korean product only. They did mention that the friction is not easy that it requires some force which is what I was wondering initially so that might help. I just wish they would have dropped the price some more to say 7 Benjamins.

That'll be Koreans who mostly haven't even used the slider in their pocket.

 

 

 

I actually don't have a problem with the pricing, but dammit... get the usability right, to justify that price (and to justify all that hard work on the UI)...

At US$850, I think I'll wait for impressions before committing to one.
If the price is $50-100 more than the domestic pre-order price to cover shipping from Korea, I might be tempted but at $200 more, kinda high for me

I wonder how easy it will be to make small adjustments to volume if need to use force!!

I know I often end up tinkering with volume on commute with the dreaded volume mismatch with recordings.

Not sure but the video on their facebook page kind a give you an idea. As far I am concerned, I change the volume regularly as I go from headphones at work to iems and they are obviously not driving at the same volume level. So I know for a fact I will be constantly playing with the volume. Even if they would have used a volume rocker switch that would have been just fine. I guess we'll see if this is fine or just something we don't need.

Another option for great sound is, there is R10 from Japan, its price is keep on getting reduction, that might also a solution but of course the size is an issue.

 

Now that you mentioned it the R10 is looking attractive. they are now selling for 650 new. But I'll wait until DX90 shows up then decide.

If you only use IEMs/CIEMs, and no cans, then I would think DX90 would be much better portable option for you than HDP-R10 (and I used to be a DX100 owner, by the way).
