i understand where some of you guys come from, and not defending any business with bad customer services whatsoever, but i will give them a pass for this 'once in a year' local trade show that will stressed their resources to the fullest. No doubt there are lots of business partners in town during this timw, numerous meetings night and days, show prep and making sure everything are ready when the show starts. I guessed only when you run a small business will you truly understand how stressful all this can be. Not saying things cannot be better handled, but for me i might just avoid ordering during this time? Just my 2 cents...

Cheers Daniel! Now, did you type that post with a 32-wire Leonidas III prototype in your ear while in the secret VIP room at CanJam? :) :) :)

Hey man, I did not. :D I’ve been spending most of my time with a new combo, actually: 64 Audio’s A6t + Effect Audio’s Cleopatra. I find it tames and wets the highs ala Lionheart (in some respects), but without sacrificing the cleanliness, airiness and separation that the A6t excels at (which the Lionheart has been known to do). I find the refined top-end creates more headroom for the A6t’s dense, powerful midrange as well, so those instruments sound more free and effortless.

I've noticed this has become a more and more frequent complaint. Hopefully, Eric implements the improved follow-up procedures he alluded to on his interview ASAP.

I have no problem with them being busy with the trade show. That’s perfectly understandable, and I know it’s a big part of their business. What I do have a problem with, though, is them writing me earlier this week and saying, “I have personally looked into your order and it will definitely ship today,” and then it not happening. That was four days ago and it still hasn’t shipped.

I know it’s a small business, but if you say something like that to a customer, it really should be the truth. It just leaves a bad impression with the overall experience of dealing with them.

Ah, I see, that's very disappointing to hear indeed. Hopefully, EA are able to respond to you ASAP before the damage gets any worse.

I see now...a written commitment to customers need to be taken as is...a commitment come what may

Hooked up to the JHAudio Bertha - one wire for each driver. :p

Hey we joke now, but by the same time next year both products will exist and we will all be wondering how we survived with only 8 wires and double digit number of drivers...

Hi all,

Some of you might know that my wife and I recently exchanged the congested city of London for the cycling heaven that is the Netherlands. We did that because my wife, a cancer researcher, has been given an opportunity to set up her own research group at the University of Groningen. I think that most people, if not everyone here on head-fi will know someone who has been affected by cancer and that it is a very tough disease to fight. My wife is now developing new strategies to predict more accurately which treatments will work best for which patients, thus improving quality of life and chances of survival.

"Predicting which treatment or drug will cure a patient’s cancer proves extremely challenging. Fighting cancer is like trying to hit a moving target: cancer cells change all the time and they like to keep themselves hidden in a pool of healthy cells. It’s as if you’re picking out the blue m&m’s with your eyes closed."

In order to help set up her lab with the equipment she needs to do this, she has started a charitable fundraiser through the University of Groningen's Ubbo Emmius Fund. Her aim is to ride 10,000km (6,250 miles) on her bicycle in 2019 to raise €10,000 (~US$11,000) to help provide essential materials and equipment for her laboratory.

I wanted to ask people here on head-fi to consider donating through the fundraiser website:
https://www.rugsteunt.nl/project/10k-voor-10k?locale=en

As a thank you to head-fi members, I have been given permission by @EffectAudio to raffle off the Leonidas II I reviewed (2-pin, 2.5mm balanced) among those who have donated €10 or more.



If you would like to be entered in the raffle (you can also donate without entering):
1) Donate €10 or more,
2) make sure to add as a message "Head-fi - [username]" so we can identify you.

We will run it for one month, so the deadline for entering is May 8, 2019.

While you can donate as much as you want and as often as you want, the amount you donate will have no effect on your chances and only one entry is accepted per person. 100% of all donations will go towards the research and I will take care of postage.

I hope people will accept this in the spirit that is intended, as a fun and informal way to raise money for a worthy cause.

What a beautiful effort, Erik. I wanna wish you and your wife the best of luck with this fundraiser and her research. I hope that link'll still be working when I'm finally old enough to make a PayPal account in July. :D

Thank you very much Daniel! Yeah, the fundraiser itself will run for the rest of the year, as there are still a lot of kilometres to go. At this moment the counter is at: 2,847.99km

Great initiative and sacrifice (knowing how much you love your Leo II) Erik. And I hope many donations will be made in the next weeks to help raise funds :thumbsup:

Thanks Erik! Yeah, Leo II is my favourite cable and that is also why I thought it would be a good choice. Let other people have a chance at such a nice cable. Thanks also for the generous donation!
