On our recent meetup in Toronto Canada. Lily, representing Hifiman and some attendees expressed their wishes to have a SUSVARA tour. I would like to thank Lily, Hifiman & Attendees for entrusting me in organizing this tour.

Nothing is finalized but These are very expensive headphones so we would need a good number of people interested.

Please, I listened to susvara at the Toronto show on Eska. I was the first guy there and I can't get susvara out of my head after listening to it. I'm getting antipodes ds GT player server roon core to audioquest diamond USB to chord TT xlr balanced out to gsx mk2 so if balanced cables are available xlr 4 pin, that would be perfect. Otherwise I would run se to chord TT direct.

I've had the he-400, 500, he-6 for 2 years and currently own the he1000, owned the LCD 2/3/x, hd700/hd800, alpha prime, isine20, roxanne, Angie's, w60, etc etc haha so I have a good base to judge from.

Haven't done many reviews but I'm well written and would love to post a detailed review.

The only thing I can think of why susvara is not getting blitzed with requests is the price. I think if folks heard it they may torment over the 6000$ price cause it may be that good. He1 owners eyes rolling may not want to even hear it.
But regardless of follow through I think folks should give susvara a listen, you deserve to hear it. I'm looking forward to it as a real pleasure.

I've heard it at the Toronto meeting that audioexcellence hosted with us, and it was a pleasant experience. I have the recorded demo files in 24 bit on patreon, and I keep replaying it on my monitoring headphones because it sound quite incredible. Obviously I did not hear enough to fully review it myself, I think this would be a great chance for anyone who wants to compare it to their TOTL headphones. I personally would be comparing this to my HD800s, LCD 2, and the focal utopia that I have a brief listen to because I do not own anything at the susvara price range. But, I am quite excited for this. hope we get enough people to get this going.
