Tour Update - 2020/07/06

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, our first and foremost priority is to make sure participants and our own employees remain safe and are doing their parts in minimizing public risk.

Because many of our tour members reside in major metropolitan areas that have been hit hard by the virus, many have been placed under strict stay-at-home orders for the past few months. Despite a progressive loosening of shelter in place measures in May, it is the opinion of our company that we proceed cautiously, and we will monitor the situation as it evolves weekly. The United States has seen a major increase in confirmed cases since June, and if this upward trend continues, we may need to pause our US tours. In other areas, as the pandemic improves, and countries start cautiously loosening limitations on travel and activity, we will start adding more units/segments and people to the tour. Thus, we're happy to announce that we're starting our Asia/Pacific tour leg.

Sign-up is now open for UK users (TWO slots remaining) on the European tour. It is now also open for individuals around the Asia/Pacific, starting with three slots. The sequence of the tour will be grouped by country for easier logistics.

Extremely impressed with the pairing of Luna & Blanche. There is a holographic soundstage expansion and the overall presentation feels very open. The micro details are better. With cable pairings, it is all about synergy. Having tried Luna with many high end cables, I don't think they can come close to the Blanche for synergy. It is as though the Blanche is made for Luna. Brilliant.

How does this differ from the original cable that comes with Luna?

@DUNU-Topsound - You mentioned some discount for Luna users, is that still valid ? :wink:

The soundstage expansion is more holographic. Wider stage and more headroom. Greater extension on both ends. Treble is more open and crisp has higher definition. Midrange is less warm and there is better clarity. Bass is more agile. This is the cable to pair with Luna, the soundstage is so satisfying. Cheers.

PM/e-mail us for details! We'll have a special code for LUNA owners only. :beerchug:

As for how they differ physically, we have a comparison chart of the different cables we have on offer in this thread:

Many of these cables come as standard equipment on our current products (paired cables utilize overmolded connectors instead of a generic cylindrical connector), such as the DK-2001 (DUW-02), DK-3001 PRO (LYRE), DK-4001 (NOBLE), 17th Anniversary Limited Edition (CHORD), and LUNA (special variant of the NOBLE, codenamed 'STELLAR'). However, we have several standalone products as well, such as the HULK, VIRIDIAN, BLANCHE, and MANDATE. VIRDIAN and MANDATE are only available in Asia.

And thanks @audio123 for the impressions!

I’m really happy to have just learned that the missing LUNA I sent back to DUNU has been found. I felt bad for those that followed me on the waiting list, and now perhaps, virus permitted, they will get their chance to audition this stellar performer. :ksc75smile:
