of the Solaris or one of the others? if the solaris would be very interested in your impressions vs. the SE
Sorry, I forgot to clarify. I ordered the Solaris 2020. I will get the newly revamped Andromeda 2020 in the near future.

Thank YOU, bro! Let us know what you think when you get it tomorrow. :blush:
The respect is mutual my dude! Best customer service hands down.

I will definitely compare them directly to the only other Solaris I have which is the SE. Going to focus on short term and long term comfort in addition to sound signature.

Looking forward to your impressions.
I told @Andrew DiMarcangelo I am holding off on ordering a pair of 2020's from him until I hear thoughts from the community in the next couple of days! If they are by and large the same sonically to the SEs, I'll pull the trigger (presuming they will fit better - being 20% smaller - and the cable is a bit of an upgrade versus the cable that came with the SE).

Thanks!

I've been thinking about finally pulling the trigger on some Andros and now the Andro 2020 is out...any possibility they'll put the OG Andros on sale? :sweat_smile:

Very happy that CA came up with these and I hope they'll get the success they likely deserve — although the Ara are cross-over-less and just stunning — I'm happy I kept my Andromeda Gold which is the only high-end piece I'll keep.

They run occasional B-stock sales. There was one back in March and there seems to be one every year for Black Friday.

Andromeda Gold is an awesome iem :) the FR looks different to Ara so they won’t be the same sound wise . I’ll keep my Golds for sure

I'll probably get the Solaris 2020 to replace my Solaris OG as I find the Solaris sound signature is what I like the best.

I hardly use my Andromeda White or Gold and need to sell off the Atlas as it's no longer my cup of tea. Might be time to sell the Andromeda White too.

So what is closer to the MW10? The Andro 2020, or the Ara? Listened to Jude's video and he mentioned the Ara is a cross of the MW10 and the Andro Gold SE, but it sounds like regular Andro 2020 got most of what made MW10 special? Any thoughts? Leaning toward the Andro.

Seems like the Ara is a suuuuper flat tuned IEM, more to please the purist reference IEM crowd. Based on it's specs, it'll take some juice to power.

My take was the Ara. Wasn't that the one that made him mention the MW10? What do I know?

Anxious for impressions of both the Andro and the Ara. Exciting news, CA!
