    No worries for Dunu ... It'll sell. That's just reality nowadays in headfi and has always been in HiFi. If you want the best you have to pay. And I mean PAY, because nothing gets overlooked more by we audiophiles than the law of diminishing returns.

    This piece of gear is not about price performance ratio. The value in this case is in knowing you have the best, the first, or the newest.

    Consumer vs hobbyist psychology.

    For this price, hum. ?Have to wait. In this price have lots of exceptional iems. I was thinking that they will come, maybe, at 1.199 or 1.299 to fight with ak T9iE.

    I sometimes do not condone this to be too mainstream. Totls become overprice lately.

    Working hard to secure a tour unit for Head-Fi members! :smile: We should be able to start production next month, and so January is a good goal for us to get people to start listening!

    Additionally, we're looking to send Jude a unit once we're done with the cosmetic side of things (need to make minor adjustments to the CNC programming to carry out the designer's vision), and he can do a full battery of tests with his fancy new B&K 5128 (we only have a 4128C) and high-resolution GRAS rigs. :nerd:

    Our own test equipment indicates LUNA has vanishingly low distortion figures, and as people can see from the vibrometry video, the pistonic motion it produces is highly uniform, far better than conventional drivers that even we have made.

    We certainly wouldn't recommend some of these options, though certainly they were suggested in jest. However, we will look hard at financing options for LUNA. The issue with financing options is that "mini-loans" from companies like Affirm, Afterpay, Klarna, etc. do impact a consumer's credit score, especially if the person cannot pay it down quickly. We would not wish for people to have to take a hit on their credit in order to afford LUNA.

    We have high confidence in our statement -- let's leave it at that! :angel:

    We have always maintained a goal of giving consumers the most value, even at this price point. That's why we've had some trouble attracting distributors, as our margins are very, very slim. However, the raw materials and further advanced processing associated with LUNA are exorbitantly high.

    In the coming months, we will detail the entire speaker production process, from cutting out the material, forming it, and bonding it to its suspension, before setting it on its support structure. Not only are the materials costly, but the labor is beyond intensive. There's not too much we can automate. We've already offset some R&D costs to minimize the hit on the sticker price.

    Could we have priced it lower? Perhaps if we went with a stainless steel or plastic housing. But where's the fun in that? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    A few pictures from CanJam Shanghai and our press conference there:

    From the moment the show opened at 10 AM on 11/9, we were swamped with show-goers hoping to listen to the LUNA.
    We had to start handing out waiting list number cards on 11/10, going all the way up to #55.

    Part of the reason why the line was so long was that people spent a long time listening, sometimes up to 25 minutes at a time.
    We will have to curb listening times at our next show --- actually there's one this weekend at one of FUJIYA-AVIC's locations.

    The show's spokesmodels helped us out with displaying the LUNA on the show floor and at the press conference.

    Media members present at the press conference were mostly local to China, but @Frank I was there! Thanks for coming out, Frank!

    @FiiO 's Scottish Blackface mascot even made an appearance at the press conference!

    Our head acoustic engineer Andy Zhao headlined the technical presentation to describe why LUNA is an engineering breakthrough,
    while our industrial designer Moses gave a great overview of the intricate design elements of the LUNA. ​

    I look forward to adding this to my collection. I love how dynamic driver sound, the bass, the midrange, the naturalness and coherency.


    As far as pricing goes, it is along with other flagship dynamic IEM pricing, or dare say far below it.

    While I love my dk-4001 I would certainly be interested in a trade up program.

    Would have liked a fun bass sound rather than reference.

    But let see how things go.
