@KB Are there any sonic differences between Solaris v1 and Solaris v2? And how does the Ara sound compare to the Andromeda AG?

Great news a smaller and more discrete Solaris...

Could Ara be considered quite close to the Andro Special Edition with the quad bass BA or is it a different tuning?

Will the new 2020 models of the Andromeda and Solaris replace the current models? Or will they coexist?

@KB, how does Solaris-2020 sound sig compare to OG and SE?
Website is live..

https://campfireaudio.com/

We are always looking to make our builds more refined, this Solaris 2020 is pretty much all the work we have done with the SE and more rolled into the revised smaller Solaris 2020. To my ears the 2020 is a lot like the sound of the Solaris SE only physically smaller, more ergonomic and more discrete in all PVD black. Could not be more happy with it and congrats to my team, especially the engineering guys who worked very hard to shrink everything down while somehow making sonic improvements along the way. Main improvement is its new monolithic solid body interior design. All 3 have this new solid interior body improvement and is a major step in the evolution of Campfire IEMs. Looking forward in hearing impressions by customers and reviewers in the coming days.

Can you provide measurements for the size of the Solaris 2020? Curious about the size difference.

Congrats @KB

Does the Solaris 2020 feature the same mids driver like SE?
