Meze Empyrean Loaner Program

    Hi All,

    We have had an Empyrean headphone to play with now for a little over a week and are ready to share it with some interested customers. We will offer it to the first 5 to sign up for the loaner program. Please be someone who is considering buying this great headphone. A review will still be expected with the loaning of the Empyrean... We will offer a second loaner program for those who are interested in hearing it and writing a review.

    We will send it out with the stock headphone cable as well as our go to Cardas Clear cable so you can try that out too! I would expect to be ready to part with my Empyrean by Tuesday or Wednesday... email me to sign up...

    Loaner Program Rules:

    Send your name and address, telephone number and your Head-Fi user name to me (Todd) at todd@ttvjaudio.com. Do NOT PM me as you will not be included in the program without an email.

    You will get the loaner for 1 week to use in your home with your system. After your one week is up, you must send it to the next loaner participant. Email me (todd@ttvjaudio.com) the tracking info so I can pass it on to the recipient.

    You MUST write a review and post it in this loaner thread. It must be posted in the same thread as this announcement for the loaner program. Please post the review here first and feel free to post it somewhere else if you like!

    Once you have received the loaner, email me to let me know you have it and I will send the address for the next person.

    Our loaner programs are USA only. We are restricted from shipping/selling outside the USA on most products.


    I look forward to hearing from you!

    Why are 80% of review tours limited to USA only? Are there not enough potential customers in Europe?
    Damn, How did I not notice this any earlier lol. Smh

    Hi betula,

    I am a retail store in the USA and am not permitted to sell and ship most of these products outside of the USA, These units are not provided for free by the manufacturers - I have to buy them. I use these loaners to promote the products and TTVJAudio and hopefully the participants buy them from TTVJAudio in return for the in home audition. Also, the shipping outside the USA becomes an issue as it is expensive. Most of the stuff I loan out is also expensive and my own personal gear and I brought it in to use here in my shop once the program is over. Also, some of the products are 120v only and do not have power supplies that are switchable.

    It is not a slight of you guys in Europe or elsewhere. Where I can I do try to send stuff and have, in the past, sent some Apex amps for meets in the UK.

    I hope this helps explain why we only do our loaners in the USA. If you are having a meet and want to pay for the shipping to and from you, I am willing to loan out some of the gear I have so you can try it. Contact me via email and we can work something out. todd@ttvjaudio.com

    Thanks Todd,

    My comment was not against you. I am sure you do an awesome job in America.

    My comment is aimed to Meze who is a European company, not not launching a similar review tour in Europe.

    All the best Todd,

    Hi betula,

    I did not take it personally and feel bad that I cannot serve customers in Europe with very many of the products I carry. I hope that maybe sometime there will be a product you are looking for that I can be of service to you.

    I am actually glad you asked so I could explain. Its not a matter of wanting to do loaners there - it is a matter of keeping my dealerships and not offending the dealers you have there.

    and all the best to you also betula!

    Hi All,

    This loaner program is now closed to new participants - I have one more than I originally planned to have. I will box them up tomorrow and send them your way! Enjoy the Empyrean headphones - I know I am. And don't forget to use both the stock cable and the Cardas Clear cable we are providing for this tour. I look forward to your thoughts and impressions of these headphones!

    If a new slot opens up, I’d love to participate. I’m very intregued by these headphones.

    If it is of any value, I’d be happy to compare against the LCD-3 (sold in last month) and Ether 2 (own now).

    Hi All,

    As you can see I have add a few more loaner participants but I cannot add any more to this program. I hope you understand - 10 people is double what I had planned to allow. I hope everyone enjoys the Empyrean. It is shipping out today to #1 on the list!

    Hi Todd,

    Are you going to give another chance for other headfiers after those 10 above people?
    I didn’t really hear this loaner program too until today. :slight_frown:

    This is an awesome opportunity, while I'm not participating in this, I would like to thank @Todd for extending yet another loaner out to our community. I know that there's a lot of gear I get to hear only because of his programs. That said, I look forwarding to reading over everyone thoughts. I'm familiar with the prefferances of quite a few of you so It'll be good to get some feedback on the Emyrean from members who's input I value and trust

    I salute @Todd for his initiative and hard work to organizing this tour and I want to assure @betula and everyone else that have in plan to make such tour as well in Europe ever since the launch of the Empyrean. Thanks for your patience. It will come eventually.
