    Effect Audio cables thread

    i understand where some of you guys come from, and not defending any business with bad customer services whatsoever, but i will give them a pass for this 'once in a year' local trade show that will stressed their resources to the fullest. No doubt there are lots of business partners in town...

    Acoustune HS1690TI

    You’re about right..tried out the 1690 vs 1670 vs 1650 and the 1690Ti matches my listening taste the best. Bass are well controlled, better instruments separation and everything just sounded more coherent. This is one heck of an iem for the asking price...needless to say it will be coming home...

    Cavalli Audio's Liquid Carbon Owners Impressions

    Unfortunately all warranty are deemed expired now that Cavalli has shut up shop for good. I shall cherish my LAu (and LC2) for as long as my ears holds up

    Cavalli Audio

    Still digesting this piece of news. The LAu will always be cherished by me and I was very much looking forward to the Liquid Tungsten, but alas family and health will always come first. Wishing Alex all the best with more quality family time

    High end (IEM) cable thread: impressions, pics, comparisons and reviews.

    Looking forward to it. I have all three...but my Zen is a 8-wire config. For some reason (likely due to mathching) I'm liking my Ares II a bit more but they are all very nice, affordable wires. Time to give all three a back-to-back comparison again

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Was just about to type the same answer...most, if not all are Made in China. I picked up a couple in Japan then later another one locally at near half price all are about the same quality, and yes Chinese made. The only difference are the packaging and the branding outside the box.

    Sony announces the "Just ear" brand of custom IEMs

    Good to see this thread revived...looking forward to more feedbacks from those who owned one. Will be making 3 trips to Japan between now until the end of the year so I will definitely check it out

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    How was the process of having one made in Japan? how many fitting/impression do you need to go through and most importantly how is the sound quality?

    flinkenick's 17 Flagship IEM Shootout Thread (and general high-end portable audio discussion)

    I would guessed there are some "less than 5-stars" reviews in between...just that there are now no-where to be found

    flinkenick's 17 Flagship IEM Shootout Thread (and general high-end portable audio discussion)

    Like I have said...some guys just take a piece of their gear far too seriously, oftentimes without realising how lucky we all are to be able to splash this much money and resources on our hobby. I owned many Noble earphones...from the good old Noble 6 to the Kaiser 10 (that was my main go-to...
