Am I the first owner ??? Qualia 010 !!! - Page 28

In the box there are two little books, one is the owner manual and I think the other is a instruction for a correct use of the headphones...

Best!

Yes, according to the pics of the manual, you can adjust the headband a few cm's. probably 1 or 2 cm.you just have to loosen the two screws and you can move the headband up or down a bit.

Well the materials must, or should be diferent, but the shape of the driver is pretty similar to the ones used in the R-10 and the CD3000 little brothers, even the diaphragm is very similar.....in shape...

you should visit Nik and listen to the RP010 yourself.

in any case, I cannot wait to hear Nik's impressions on his new amp....

I'm sort of bored and don't want to study so I did a very rough translation of the major items discussed in the scans gsferrari posted four posts up. hope I'm not too asleep and I did a decent job.


nanocomposite HD (high definition) driver unit

uses the newly developed dynamic-type HD driver unit and neodymium magnet to achieve a wide dynamic range to the highest level possible... realizing a frequency range of 5Hz to 120kHz

the drivers are made from super thin poly-amide fibers a few microns wide with embedded nano-sized silica particles, which allow the driver to do the fast and detailed movements needed for producing sounds around the 100kHz ultrasound region that were previously unachievable. shape of drivers obtained through computer simulations combined with real world tests....

high power magnet

to allow compatibility with SACD's signal that contains a massive amount of information, the 010 uses a neodymium magnet with a maximum magnetic energy of 440kJ/m^2. (then it talks about how to make a magnet that has a high magnetic strength like that... and how they had to create a circular magenet composed of four separate parts to obtain the best results due to how the pressing of the magnets during their formation affects the magentic orientation of the magnetic particles and how the traditional method creates a chaotic array of orientation as opposed to the desired result of perfect alignment for the strongest magnet. look at the picture for clarification.)


(then it talks about the baffle but I'm too lazy to translate it and I should be studying for class anyways... so make something up that makes sense I guess.)


so ya... that's my random translation and may not accurately reflect what they really said. you've been warned.

ayt999, thanks for the effort! If you find the time, can you tell something about the earpiece and its design philosophy, especially if the baffle (where the driver is mounted on) is closed or perforated/sound permeable?

jaZZ,

you will see soon! Nik is making pics of the qualia and the new amp today.

That looks like something stored away in the corner of my old high school chemistry class that everyone was afraid to touch. Seriously, now that the headphones are getting serious out there, I'm glad to see such insane efforts to create an equally insane headphone amp to match. That amp has "my divorce" written all over it, lol! I can't wait to hear all of the latest and greatest at the next NYC meet!

pictures from north of Italy?
I wanna see Nik and Dr. Rudi shaking their hands!!!!!!!

I am quite sure Nik is listening to and playing with his new toy.
