That's as far as my MS Paint skills go hah! Couldn't rotate 45 degrees angle x-D

Looks like they are building something with the flux capacitor :D

what's the longest someone has waited for customs? since i currently reside in taiwan i ordered from here and theres probably a lot of time between shipping the mods from here to the us (64 audio) and then shipping the ciems over, but its been nearly seven weeks now... SOMEONE GIMME
Three months for my AAW W500 bcos they were sent to the wrong Jaben in the wrong country lol. But I got a nice upgrade cable out of that so no worries, AAW is good in the service front.

Speaking of which, I mentioned awhile ago about missing the brute force bass of the W500. The powerful, authoritative, soul-shaking, earth-shattering, skirt-blowing bass of the W500 DD driver was the highlight of a very fine IEM. The Legend X bass gives me that feeling! The amount of bass air moved is astounding. Like tiny wind turbines in your ears. Loving the sound so far, not just the bass but the entire signature, and it's not even in its final form yet. Still on the burner and about 55 hours in. Once the sound settles, we'll see how this baby delivers.

You would love the IMR R1. I spent my evening out back on the porch, catching the last of the sun, listening to those IEMs. With the Copper filter, the bass is honestly one of my favorites. So unbelievably satisfying. The perfect thing to listen to while my Legend X burns in for a good long while.

It has finally been revealed! Project K is an initiative launched by Music Sanctuary to push audio products to their fullest potential. They’ll be making their debut with the Soundwriter - a sans-APEX 64Audio A18 modded with PWAudio internal wiring, MS’s special solder and shielding. Fear the pricetag... :D

Hmmm, the removal of Apex and higher quality internal cabling should increase the resolution considerably.. But I wonder if its going to sound bright and thin..

I really appreciate their effort to milk us audio-fools to their fullest !

Adding 5000% margin copper cables is among my favorite techniques, and I think calling it Project K to subtly suggest that cable replacement and some magical solder involves rocket science level R&D efforts is particularly clever and accurate.

Good job guys! And thanks for the heads up that the price will rip us a new one, on top of an already ridiculously priced monitor!

I think there could be room for a few more hundred bucks to be taken by adding so anti-vibration stickers.
