Hahaha! I'm just glad that most people here respect each other's opinions and accept whatever the differences in their preferences are. IMO, this conflicting opinions regarding CA IEMs (or the Nova only?) only added fire to my curiosity. I haven't owned TOTL IEMs ever and only own some cheapo and midfi ones. Say, I regularly use my IE8 and Aurisonics Rockets, would the Nova be a listening upgrade for me? I appreciate the strong areas of those mentioned IEMs even though they're totally different so I think maybe I'll have no problem once I get the Nova. Sadly, headfi buddies are hard to find where I'm at. I'm still hoping to find some with same taste someday though.
