    Thanks, it's been very helpful.

    I'm using an Onkyo DPX 1A. Probably one of the lesser used daps by most folks. Had always had a preference for a wide range of music but gravitate towards vocals. Example of other genres that I listen would include singers like Sarah Brightman, Andrea Bocelli, to R&B and jazz.

    Listening preference I prefer something more revealing, tight bass and a wide soundstage.

    You are right that I would still be buying blind and that it’s easily resold. The notion that the MW10 might follow a neutral tuning similar to the c/2019 q4 is probably a good guess in the right direction. I have friends in Japan, hence will be asking them to help me with the purchase as he comes back into where I am located regularly so no issues on that.

    Will go ahead and hope that stocks are available.

    Thanks very much and once again your response has been very helpful!

    Glad i could help (even though i think i was not fully explaining well enough).
    But i think the basic information is there.

    i put the Mixwave article through a translation so that may help you too

    i dont know how many units of each are going to be on offer 500-700 at a guess. Like the Solaris SE.

    if its a Japan release it might be pre order bookings - and not first come first served on the day. So be mindful/careful of that.

    Thanks, I believe its 500 units and will be asking my friend to pre-order, not sure if will get allocated though.

    Pre-ordered the Q4, and now waiting until release next Wednesday :) I was looking for IEM that can portray clear natural mids during Portafes, and found C 2019 / Q4 to be my favourite. The flatter (less bass) tuning brings the best of the midrange, rendering it beautifully. I like how clean the Q4 sounds. The Andromeda (blue) was also good if you like more bass, but I like the Q4 better. I could hear the blue Andromeda also sounding more balanced/neutral slightly compared to the emerald green model. The vocals sounded denser and more centered a bit.

    hey Darksoul,

    I am not sure we pre sold them all to Mixwave and they in turn distributed them all through their network in Japan. We are not selling any of them directly to end users. I have over the years become very close to the management at Mixwave so we wanted to do something special with Mixwave to celebrate our very close relationship over the years. I apologize for not making this model available globally. The tuning of the MW10 is my favorite tuning, ultra dynamic, so will consider it for a permanent version possibly... stay tuned.

    Thank you,

    Thanks Ken, from a business perspective I understand and applaud that. Am trying to get my sources in Japan to order and crossing finger that I can get hold of it. On behalf of the other global fans, I’m sure there will be plenty that will be keen when you have a permanent version out.

    :)

    Wow ive been in and out of both e-earphones in Osaka recently and I saw nothing about a new limited Andro coming out. Not even pre-order signs or anything, this is kinda out of the blue. Maybe they won't carry them. Also holy heck at that $1700 usd price tag for the MW10.
