    Last PM on the 28th, no answer. Spill the beans Maurice. [​IMG]

    Jack's been so busy tinkering with his one-off 24 driver IEM and the Zeus R that he hasn't seen the light of day in weeks. Seriously though, last time we spoke it sounded like Jack has a busy schedule this month so he's probably keeping his nose to the grindstone and powering through his schedule.

    24 Drivers?! And I thought John Moulton was a genius. Those must be HUGE.

    Umm, John did a 20 driver build up years ago. The 24 driver was an April fools joke, looked really cool though.

    You say April Fool's joke, but it actually works.

    It was a joke, as in, it wasn't an actual new product being brought to market.

    Phase issues no doubt. With all those drivers who knows.

    I believe those are called prototypes. :wink:

    Prototype, April Fools joke, or proof of concept it's still quite an engineering feat.

    The comments say it all. Kind of a joke, but does work, and phase issues, so we are all correct. [​IMG]

    Quick question about the supra if that's ok.  Just wondering how flush they are meant to sit in the ear?  No matter how I put them in (cable up, linum) they still stick out quite a bit.  Was just wondering if I was doing something wrong?  Using spin fit tips.  Left ear fits ok, right is annoying.  Small is too small but medium feels a touch large.  Same with Comply (plus I've had one of those come off in my left ear a couple of times so don't like using them!).
     
    Thanks for any info or (constructive) advice.

    You should use another tips like Westone Star tips or EarSonics tips (my favourite :) )

    My first custom made cable. I can finally experience balanced output for myself. I'm giving up on 3.5mm TRS singled ended output on the Onkyo  DP-X1 because that jack has to be faulty. I got the same curse with it I had with the BTG Starlight cable that came with my original Zeus; short recap: any slightest movement of the cable or rotation of the TRS barrel leads to unplugging itself and causing the music to pause stop playing. Ultra annoying. I got the same thing happening with the big angled plug used by Effect Audio in their Ares cable (will ship it back to you Jack, forever grateful :wink: )
    So glad I picked the 2.5mm TRRS Eidolic spacious barrel for the Onkyo. it's flush, solid, won't budge. Works perfectly.

    I admit I do take pride wearing that flat braided Therium and the abalone Zeus. It's becoming my mojo ^^ Yeah baby! Yeah!
     
    I mean just take a look at those Zeus!

    They do stick out a weeny bit more, but that's a solid abalone piece, so it lead to a thicker faceplate.

    Inkscape was a nice and relatively easy free software to use for vector based design/drawings. The custom artwork engraving rendition gave a beautiful result I think.

    What a tremendous pleasure and privilege to lose oneself in music, look up to the sky, gaze at the clouds while profoundly smiling back.

    How ironic, you get a 2.5 TRRS cable the same day mine is being sent back to me to get rid of the 2.5 TRRS. 2 AK players that I didn't like using that connection. Back to reg 3.5 TRS.

    If you settle for 3.5m TRS, you have GOT to go for 6 conductor in full 6 flat braid up to Y splitter then 2x 3 flat for L+R. It's craaaaaaazy good looking. 4 cond flat looks meh, but 8 flat is gorgeous. 6 gets to eat the cake and dance with the prom queen
