A true madlad indeed with a $925 gamble.
I can see this thread blossom if their flagship live up to our expectations.

Any idea about the quality of their crossover circuit? Looking at ST6A
I haven't really noticed any crossover weirdness in my set, but I'm not quite as familiar with what to look for regarding that. I just know that managing to cross over a DD for bass into six BA drivers across that many crossover points and getting a graph that is nearly flat until the treble roll-off is a pretty serious deal. It also takes EQ like a champ, so my opinion is that their crossover game is pretty strong.

Thanks for the info. Trying to understand GS Audio's listings - Some listings mention 3-way / 4-way crossover, some don't - Does it mean they don't have one? Or, does it mean they use a generic circuit?

I just contacted the GS Audio store for ST10, confirmed it can be made with any of their product design, so I’m going for a stabilized wood faceplate with clear shell🤔

Can confirm that the stabilized wood faceplate from the SD3 is gorgeous. I got my GD7B made to look like them. Check out my ever-so-slightly out-of-focus pictures on the first page of this thread to see what mine came out like. Might be worth asking if they have other colors available. I didn't bother because purple is my favorite, but I can understand that not everyone prefers it when other colors are available.

Ah, I can totally get the confusion. They all have crossovers, but they mention it specifically when it's a particular selling point for their more premium offerings where they're crossing over at a lot of points.

Edit to clarify: the ST1 doesn't have a crossover as such, since it only has the single BA driver, but they have tuned the driver, so it should also have something similar.

I updated the primary thread post for this thread to try to clarify the naming scheme explanation and consolidate the various customization measures that people have confirmed with the GS Audio reps. If anyone else learns of anything new, please post it here so I can add it to the list. If you've gotten your sets in, please feel free to tell us about your experience with them and post some pics of the goods. I love seeing people's new toys. Thanks!

Could you ask them to provide a graph of the ST10? One with proper axis labels lol.

Here comes a madlad.

Since GS audio only takes Aliexpress standard shipping (and it will take like 1-2month), and offers no other options, I placed the order for ST10. (430+10shipping+US sales tax😭, totaled $470).
NOTE:
-A custom built ones are not returnable, so if something happens, it’s a risk.
-AE standard shipping (kinda worried to ship expensive IEM over this shipping channel…)

We will see…
