Yep. I think he's also backlogged with reshells.

 

リシェルサービスは限定20台の受注をもって終了とさせていただきます。
大変ご好評をいただきありがとうございました。

Next (month) in Jerusalem I suppose.

Batch 2 in 14th Aug?

 

Actually when I tried it last weekend, I didn't know it was a limited release item.

Some comments on the Trios from 84's blog.

 

Quote:
トリオ・・・もう一度聴いてきました.....が、やはり混雑気味だったのでダイヤル真ん中を1~2分程度試聴。
印象はポタフェスのときと変わらず、まとまりの良さと高域がとても良い。
特に高域はDWFK1ユニットなのにTWFKを2~3ユニット積んだ多ドラIEMのような細かさが出ていて素晴らしい。

カノン・・・トリオ待ちの間にはちょっと気になってるカノンをもう一度お試し。
こちらも基本的にはヘッドフォン祭のときと同じ印象だったが、高域が増えたわけではないのに更にクリアになったように感じた。
祭のときの試聴機と同じだったかは覚えてないが、カノンの音導出口は変わった形状で、中高域側は大きな三日月のような形で、低域側は細くなっている。

I guess he's charging 10000 yen extra for the raden/mother-of-pearl faceplates.

 

 

 

If I could do things all over again I would have gone for one of the ones below.

No idea how they sound. Perhaps Currawong or the other folks who visited the Fujiya-Avic Spring Festival will have done so last weekend.

It sounded decent. It seems (to me at least) the monitor sound but with wide staging seems to be the new trend of "signatures" most IEM makers are heading for. I have to admit I've been spoilt during that day with the Laylas and listening to the Monet 17, Noble Savant, that by the time I came to the Kumitate table (which was literally the last hour of the show), I was tired. So I wasn't very awed by it. It did sound nice, neutralish as one would expect from the name but I couldn't find a part of the signature that would grab me with a wow after experiencing the other aforementioned IEMs. This could just be timing - if I had popped by the Kumitate lab earlier in the show, these sentiments may well have applied to some other exhibitor's IEM.

 

The one thing (which unfortunately is a small negative) is the highs were a little less refined compared to what I had heard of the aforementioned IEMs. Granted the KL-Ref isn't as expensive as the others and it's probably brand new that could have a little more break-in.

Hi everyone,

 

I am organising a US tour for the demo units from KumitateLab. If you are from US and would love to hear these monitors, do kindly head over here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/786653/kumitatelab-lab-usa-demo-tour#post_12051710

Interesting, I have heard good things about this company awhile back. Wonder if they make one of their IEMS to have bass go down to sub bass like the Sony Z5?
