    I think also the incresing popularity of CIEM for non-professional use seems to have been very influential on overall prices, once somebody figured out to combine "custom" and 'luxury brand" there was no hope for rational pricing. Apparently the "slowly boiling frog" truism isn't actually true for frogs but I think it still applies to humans, at least of the gearhead variety :money_mouth:

    Yes I understand that but we just don’t want this TOTL to be $3,000 just because.

    I haven’t heard anything bad from Meze, I really enjoyed the 99 and 12 classics for the price. This could be very successful at 1K if the sound is very good.

    It will be at the $1K threshold IIRC. A fellow member heard them at CJ Singapore, he wasn't thorougly impressed but those of course are just inital impressions at a show. I believe this is similar to the Empyrean where they are showing the industry what they are capable of. They will of course still continue to make budget gear for the rest of us sub-$1K peasants :D

    Hey I’m not a sub $1K peasant! :open_mouth::grin:

    I just don’t believe in supporting mega expensive iems because that will lead them to keep bumping up he price if we’re paying. 2020 year of the $5,000 TOTLs...

    Tia Forte is already half way there :D

    With the amount of IEMs i've purchased over the last few years I could have got a TOTL one instead :sweat_smile:

    Tia Forte is 4800 aud. At least in other currencies we have reach the mark of insanely high, and this is coming from a gear head who bought the kse1500 at 4200 aud.

    Tia Fourte seems "affordable" compared to the Soundwriter. Wiring the A18 Tzar with PW Audio's magical cables, charging 5K. The profit margin must be really yummy.

    One day I will go to a Can Jam, but I have had my eye on these. I hope some people from Can Jam SoCal post their impressions of these.

    Any updates regarding more affordable IEMs lol

    It will definitely happen this summer, but the date isn't yet agreed upon.

    RAI Penta premium IEM will be followed by RAI Solo, a single driver and more affordable IEM.
