Looking forward to it~
Didn't you already commit, lol
I would receive it much later than other head fier though. So ya.. ಠ‿↼
Nearly there on the review, expect more of the same of what you have already read in this thread.
I received my Nova today and am in the process of comparing it to some of my other universals that are close in price to the Nova, such as the AS 1 Plus and Oriveti Primacy. As other have stated, it is warmer than the Orion with more forward mids. Highs seem somewhat more recessed than in the Orion, but that is likely the result of the warmer bass and mids. I doubt that there will be any complaints about it being bass-light! Soundstage and imaging seem to be quite accurate.
As was the case with my Andromeda, none of the included tips provided an optimum seal. At this point, I am using the Large Spinfits which seem to work well for me.
I still find the cable memory wire to be an issue as it rotates when inserting the IEM and takes a lot of fiddling to achieve a comfortable position. It would not be such an issue with a 2-pin connector.
Looking forward to it
Thanks for Nova impression, looking forward to hear more comparison.
Very interested to hear your thoughts on how it compares to the ASG-1 Plus. If it is close on tuning to that, this could be a very special sounding IEM for the price (for me, at least).
An impression as I listen to Mr. Crack - Ciroc (R&B & Hip-Hop, various artists)
Highly resolute, very sufficiently punchy and extremely creamy smooth bass the Andromeda exhibits
How the sound signature of the Andromeda makes me feel
For those that are in or around the Southern California area, there are event series this summer. Here's the flyer:

I'll be bringing some products this upcoming Sunday (including the Andromeda) if anyone wants to listen to some pretty good sounding equipment as well.
Hope to see all that can make it, there!
I should have some more impression later tomorrow. I have some specific files that I use for amp and headphone testing and will be comparing both with these files. As a preliminary comment, I would suggest there are more similarities than differences.
Ditto, just so it's not all daisies and gumdrops with my impressions. After trying a plethora of sizes-fit-all tips I have in my stable, the SpinFit tips (small size) work pretty well for me also. Fit is the only issue for my ears, but once you find a tip that works well, it isn't as much as an issue. I still have to re-adjust my IEMs from time to time, but overall the fit is sufficient with the SpinFit tips.
Nova review is up.
"I think it is excellent as an IEM, but when I have the Andromeda sitting here I can easily hear who comes out in top. But that is an unfair comparison in terms of price and performance."
most important statement in the review
Hmm best on what do you pay for this, the most an expensive should do the best of the best.
Now I was realized who ever has forgotten what's the Jupiter sitting on
Nice review, my only comment is that the Nova has 2 bores rather the 3 found in the Andromeda. Minor point.
Damn you copy and paste!
