Curious, how this compares with Sony's IER-Z1R...
In terms of tonal balance, the two are quite different. Our own impression of the LUNA is that it sits neutrally with the tiniest hint of warmth, while most peoples' impression of the Sony IER-Z1R is that it is V-shaped with very good imaging and soundstage characteristics.
Perhaps after next week, there'll be people with their own impressions and comparisons (see below):
People in Southern California will get a GREAT opportunity to hear LUNA for the first time --- we're collaborating with The Source AV to hold a mini-meet on December 21st, from Noon to 8 PM!
LUNA will be fresh off an airplane (shipping to CA on 12/16) to make it to this meet, as well as the rest of our lineup, including the elusive 17th Anniversary Limited Edition model! This way, people can also compare between what a single DD with PVD beryllium sounds like, versus pure beryllium foil in the LUNA.
Huge thanks to @TSAVAlan and @TSAVJason for graciously hosting this event and helping make it a possibility!
I like my soundstage but I also love my details in the mid spectrums. I made the IeR Z1R work and loving it. How is the LUNA soundstage In comparison would be my question
Is this at The Source AV Design Group in Torrance, CA?
Yes, that's how I came to know about it
Yes, as @TSAVAlan stated, The Source AV Design Group showroom is located in Torrance, CA --- if you haven't been there, you should! It's legitimately a head-fier's playground!
Couldn't agree enough. I was literally found there in one or the other corner almost every single day
A picture from our meet in Wuhan, China, showing the near final version of the LUNA.
Smoother transition from beveled barrel to smooth done cap on the MMCX connector
‘Oceanic Blue’ silicone tips finalized
Cable pairing finalized --- note the clear MMCX overmolding, clear sheath, beveled Y-split, and polished Quick-Switch modular plug system
What is the cable material?
It is essentially the same cable as the DK-4001 and NOBLE, so it is also mixed strands of Furukawa Electric OCC copper and DHC silver.
But for aesthetic purposes, it is surrounded by a shielding layer made of silver-plated OCC copper (instead of OCC copper). This allows us to use a clear sheath material and not worry about copper oxidation and greening.
These look beautiful, simple yet premium.
Our mini-site for LUNA is up! Pre-orders are also available now!
