DITA Audio - Dream US Demo CIEM Tour (Limited Review Tour, Starting July 2017)

  1. Barra
    Great news - I was able to talk Ted from DITA Audio into doing a US tour of their new Dream CIEM that is only now being officially launched. We have all heard the praises coming from the lucky few that have heard it at events, flinkenick's "Ranking to Stars" review, or those that received an early delivery. Now we get to hear them for ourselves.

    However, this is a limited review tour for a hand picked 12 participants. DITA is looking for a brave few willing to do a full and honest review. If you are interested, please speak up now as I am opening up for participants. The rules and requirements for becoming a member are listed below.

    Tour Instructions (10 Day Audition)

    The participant list is organized logistically to minimize shipping costs starting from Seattle. The the tour will begin with the first in the list for a 10-day audition. Thereafter they will be responsible to deliver or ship the demo kit to the next participant in the list.
    • Upon Receipt:
      • Post: Please immediately post on the thread both receipt and condition of the demo kit.
      • PM: Please immediately PM the next 3 participants on the list to arrange delivery (if local) or shipping. While priority goes to the next in the list, if they are unresponsive, you will have backup options to keep the tour going and the others will be reminded that their turn is coming. This step is critical to avoid delaying the tour. It is each participants responsibility to keep the tour moving.
    • Shipping: If a local delivery is not possible, it will be each tour members responsibility to ship the tour kit to the next participant.
      • Signature Required: While DITA is not requiring insurance to save us the cost, they do require a signature to have a clear line of responsibility.
    • Issues: Please PM Barra with any issues.
      • Dropping Out: Please PM Barra if you feel you cannot fulfill your tour responsibility and I will pull you from the list.
    • Review: Reviews are greatly appreciated by all Head-Fi members.
      • Thoughts/Impressions: Feel free to post your thoughts, initial impressions, pairing results, or even informal reviews or comparisons right here on this thread.
      • Formal Reviews: When a formal review is completed and posted to Head-Fi, please post a link here for people to follow.

    Tour Participant List
    We hope to gather our list over the next few weeks to build logistics into our tour order. However, the tour will be starting in Seattle first and may start before we close our participation requests. We may add more as it makes sense, but later logistics will be first come first serve so likely to make postage more expensive. The good news is that we will do our best to accommodate all US Head-Fiers that wish to participate.

    Hello! I live in Glendale, Arizona and I would like to participate in the tour. I agree to follow the terms of this tour if selected.

    I have participated in other Head-Fi tours of iem's, full size headphones, and headphone amplifiers. I also own the DITA Answer (Truth Edition) to compare to with an array of source components/gear. Thank you for the opportunity.

    Sample Review:

    SIMAudio Moon Neo HAD230 Link: A very spacious analog sound that is detail rich yet anchored by a liquid warmth.
