Campfire Audio Multiverse

I received the email too.

Always been a fan of campfire... But this kind of rubs me the wrong way a bit. Just never a fan of ultra limited edition releases that you have to "blind" buy without hearing or even being able to wait for impressions from others. Definitely playing up that whole fomo thing.

Hope there's some interesting stuff in there though, and not just more Andromeda or Solaris rehashes. Who knows. I'll still be interested to see what they come up with.

Correction - beryllium is significantly lighter and more rigid than titanium.

Titanium is indeed harder, but above all for an audio company like CFA, it is cheaper.

The lighter part is probably a minor difference cosidering the size of most IEM drivers and as you mention Ti is probably cheaper and easier to work with compared to Be with regards to safety. I remember when Be drviers were not allowed in speakers as their shattering could lead to serious poisoning.

Titanium is much safer, yeah

I know the beryllium drivers are marketed for their stiffness and lightness, but implementation is definitely the biggest factor

Very interested to see what CFA brings to the table

The Onyx on day five intrigues me. i’d love an all blacked out Andro. When I owned my Golds I actually tried to buy black screws from Campfire Audio but they told me to pound sand.

You have pure be tweeters frequently. Only TAD use a pure medium beryllium speaker (not a deposit or something).

About the interest of (pure and hard pressed) beryllium speaker (here tweeter, as a matter of fact) :
