Just got back from my audio store. Owner actually just received a Cleo Octa yesterday so I'm eager to try it out. Turns out there's something wrong with the left side one, could be the connector but I'm not sure. There would be this loud noise whenever volume is turned up. So sad that I didn't get to hear one. Been waiting for it too :frowning2:

On the other hand, found out about King Arthur's price: US$6,888 :astonished::astonished::astonished:

It will sound like you just drop out of sky:L3000:
I got wiser enough to realize the price doesn't necessarily equate to quality for some devices, but hope this really rocks.

those three cables are amazing!! I talked to Eric and I demoed the three mysterious and Cleopatra octa and horus 8.
the first was a copper one and I think it is better than Ares II+ IMO and better ergonomics. the sound signature is warm and detailed slightly increase the soundstage with little deeper and wider. I think it is a replacement for ares II+ so I guess it is around 250~280 price range
the second was a silver cable and it is a very unique cable that with smooth treble not harsh and kind of airy. the bass was very deep and very unusual as a silver cable also neutral sound signature. it is my favorite silver cable so far since I heard a lot of silver cable that is very harsh in treble and also loses a lot of bass quantity and quality. I feel like it deserves 600 to buy this cable. PS: IMO, it is better than Cleopatra.
the third one was a copper-silver hybrid. I usually not prefer a copper-silver hybrid cable because they never work out. they always can't improve the bass with copper part and also can't improve the treble part with silver which always a disaster. however, this one is very different from other silver-copper cables. the bass is tightened and deeper a neutral cable with the detailed and smooth treble. the synergy of copper and silver is well expressed. this one I feel like it's about 450~500.
Anyway, it is a nice meeting with Eric. I wish I can demo horus 8 way earlier then I won't buy Leo II and Janus B LOL. Horus 8 is a beast but no one can buy it anymore which makes me feel sad. nice work EA fellas!

When I was deciding between those two, and auditioning it with my Trio, I went with the Cleopatra. For the price difference, it's well worth it.
