With Ken's blessing, the sample Cascade that I received to take to the Carolina Canfest is now available for a review tour and so is the pair Msheney has been demo-ing so, we have 2 pairs. This means you are twice as likely to get to participate and even more likely to see the cascade in your mailbox in the coming weeks. Please read the rules below if you would like to be part of the tour. Each person will get 10 days to listen to the Cascade and then another 10 to post their review. If once we set the order you have an issue, please let me know in advance so we can have the Cascade shipped directly to the next person in line and we will circle back to anyone with time constraints at the end of the run. Due to costs of shipping, we will send one pair out west with @Msheney and @drbluenewmexcio running that side of the affair, and an eastern half of the country run by myself. I recommend a Regional Rate Box A as the lowest cost option for shipping as it is cheaper than the Medium flat rate box. With Insurance for $800, it cost me $22 to send the Cascade from TN to MO so Ngoshawk could try it out. You may need to check with your PO about getting the Regional Rate box in advance as not all carry it. They can be ordered from the PO website directly in quantity of 25 for free delivered to your doorstep but it takes about 14-21 days to arrive so plan accordingly. I will not be shipping the Cascade overseas, so please keep this to US and Canadian members to help keep costs down. With the value of the headphone in question, shipping must be done insured and with signature required to minimize chances of damage or loss. You will be responsible for costs of shipping to the next participant and posting tracking information to this thread. I will try and create an order that minimizes costs as much as possible as will Msheney for the western tour. If you are interested, Please post in this thread: a link to reviews you have done a list of headphones you have for comparison a list of sources you have for use with the Cascade. Once you have posted that, please PM Me your full name, mailing address, email, and daytime phone number. I know some prefer not to have that information published in open forum so will promise to keep such details private except where necessary. The three of us will try and sift through requests and get a group of reviewers and dates posted for each set of Cascades so we can have the tour staged by March 24th and the Cascade sent to the first Tour participant on that date. All movements of the two will be posted to this thread as we go. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with the Cascade and feel very privileged to have gotten the chance to try them, especially this early in their life-cycle. I have made arrangement with Ken at ALO to purchase this set of headphones once the tour is complete so, much as I hate to let them out of my hands, I think they deserve to be heard, so I offer them up. MSheney has also been much impressed with them and I'm sure hates to see them depart his company as well.
