    Minor updated for Nova.

    Nova has the most heavy Bass than all the CA IEMs.
    Just slightly lesser rich detailed than Andromeda only.
    Mids & Treble quite close to Andromeda (Around 90%) that is a good point.
    There is not required change the cable at all, from that stock litz cable has do better than Andromeda Bass.
    Nova really good as deep & wide soundstage, really quite similar to Hybrid IEM :)

    My conclusion
    The overall sound signature is quite fun to me, especially the bass really extremely well.
    why never Massdrop or pre-ordered before, 100% regretted now :frowning2:

    Another (extremely) satisfied new customer checking in. These days we throw around the term "bespoke" too much, until there are satire videos about some hipster making hand crafted toilet paper, but from the moment you open the package you can tell the Andromeda are something special. The build quality is first rate, including the cable and case, more in line with an expensive mechanical watch than a pair of headphones. At much less cost and with far more practical use I might add :)

    Many others have described the sound quality better than I could, and it's as good as they have said. I'm using a Chord Mojo and attack and decay, air between instruments, detail, clarity, all are better than I had hoped to get from iems. If any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic, I'll just say that to me these appear to be sufficiently advanced technology.

    Believe it or not I prefer the sound of the Andromeda directly out of my iPhone 6S Plus than from a Mojo.

    Due to the sensitivity of these I get some electronic noise from the phone and a little hiss from the Mojo, but I'm happy to leave the Mojo at home with the Andromedas!

    I got today Linum Bax for my Nova. I have ordered cable form PlusSound, but lead time is so long, that I jump on Bax to cut waiting and result is superb. If Bax will be not so tangling, it wil be best cable for Nova. Sound is crystal clear, with decent low end and nice airnes.

    The things you do, just so that you can update your profile signature... [​IMG]

    I dont suggest linum for andromeda because of reduced soundstage and bass but for comfort its more better than stock

    I will initially be using an 8 wire Therium cable (pure OCC Silver Litz) until my 8 wire Vorpal (equal content OCC Copper Litz/OCC Silver Litz) is finished from Norne Audio.

    What is up with the Andromeda reviews on the Campfire Audio website. There's some seriously weird reviews on there that seem to have dropped it down to 3 stars out of 5. Such as this nonsense by "Trisha" 
     
    "I have exactly what info I want. Check, please. Wait, it's free? Aweemos!"

    Yes, totally agree with the bass of Nova.
     
    I finally have a chance to audition Nova at local head-fi store. With the same EQ setup, may be some minor tuning, first of all I can confirm the bass is one of the most heaviest/impacted among all CA's IEM. Did a test with my ZX2 setting the CB to level 10, its bass is almost on par with Lyra, the only difference that I can hear is just the texture between dynamic and BA driver.
     
    mids and highs were a bit muffled and not impressive, but I believe with a 200hrs of burn-in will make a change, like the same experience I got from Orion. Sound stage is reasonably wide, the whole sound tuning and signature is fun and enjoyable to listen. Can't wait when it becomes available locally here at the end of July!

    Nova gave me like a Hybrid IEM out there... Currently beats all my hybrid IEMs, especially that Dxx2 :frowning2:

    Someone is spamming the site.  Look at how many of them are one liners, July 13.  Kids with nothing better to do?

    Same thing that I noticed when I tried the Bax wit my Nova. Bass seemed to become more tamed and less boomy than stock. Though both were great, I liked the sound from the Bax more. It makes the sound more refined, clear and a little brighter.

    I've manage to tried both iem back to back, wasn't awe by the Oriolus but man, the Andromeda rly hit the sweet spots.

    Tight, controlled, and 3D-like soundstage. If paired with comply, it's extremely comfy.
