I’m wondering where the Valkyrie is priced. In terms of complexity it’s more like the Vantage than the X, but it seems like a different tuning than Empire’s previous hybrids.
Valkyrie is $1599 in custom and less in universal. It only has 3 drivers - dynamic for bass, BA for mids, estat for highs.

Huh. This mockup shows 4 speaker-like objects, with the fourth apparently being a toaster oven:

I have heard neither of the new IEMs, but the more expensive Wraith is around $3,000.

The top is the dynamic driver, the next one down on the left is the BA driver and the bottom on the left is the Estat driver. The top right is the output to the cable and the bottom right might be the crossover.

The Wraith is 3500. I may be crazy but I actually liked the legend x and the Valkyrie more than the Wraith. I wanted a tad more bass from the wraith.

Good to hear, because I was planning on ordering the Legend X.

Not an official annouunce but good chance they will happen.
Now we are talking! Khan + Wizard design. Can't go wrong. (Ok, a tiny bit more lower end on the signature)

What was new at 64 Audio?
They’re demoing something new coming out in July. They wouldn’t say what specs were or anything at all. It’s a little warmer than the A12t and strong bass rumble. Guessing some sort of hybrid.

Would be very appreciative of opinions/observations of the Astell and Kern SP 2000 from anyone who checks it out and most updated info about when they're shipping. Thank you.

Wow! I have read (not heard) that the A12t was already pretty warm. Maybe what I read was not correct.
