ExpatinJapan: Seems your time with Nova + Alien Gold closely mirrors my time with Nova + PAW Gold. audio123: What source were you using? twister6: I'll briefly share my thoughts on the TOTL IEM I heard today. All listening was again with PAW Gold + same 16/44 FLAC for all IEM. CFA Andromeda was the best match for my tastes. I really liked it a lot. Well-balanced. Full-bodied yet spacious. Smooth yet detailed upper end. Very well done. K10 Aluminum was also full-bodied and well-balanced but lacked the spaciousness I got from Andromeda. U-shaped U10 and downward-slope U12 both exhibited the somewhat bad BA behavior of sharp / hissy treble. Wasn't surprised about that with U10 but was surprised the somewhat dark U12 was giving me those issues. Soundstage was also smaller than I'd expected given comments I've read regarding the ADEL modules. Feel like Andromeda had them beat. Perhaps the custom versions of K10 and U10/U12 would've clicked with me better. Don't know. As it is, I sincerely applaud CFA's less is more engineering approach and showing the community that you can make a really top-notch IEM without cramming a jillion BA drivers inside. Great job!
