Rare sale for Hyla Audio's LA-1 Nerva X. The drivers vent directly into the silver housings which produces a uniquely full and rich sound. The overall presentation is slightly warm and dark especially when compared to the CE-5. Otherwise, these are close to neutral. Tight and punchy bottom end with a midrange which is full, engaging and not recessed. The treble is detailed but never fatiguing. The lows, mids and highs work in harmony.

Very limited run and no longer availble. These are handmade in Japan like a piece of jewellery with a rhodium plating to protect from oxidization. The silver housings scratch like silver jewlery and silverware which adds character. There are many small scratches and a small scuff on the right side housing which are hard to photograph because of the reflectivity.

From Hyla Audio's website:
- Hand made jewelry grade Silver housing
- Well sealed chamber with premium isolation
- 20Balanced Armatures(BA) in total for an impressively detailed presentation
- Special vented drivers are adapted for the mid frequencies to match acoustic characteristics of the silver chamber.
- HYLA x VanNuys multipurpose nylon & genuine leather carrying pouch.
