Next time I am in Georgia will probably be in October. I am going to head over the Empire Ears and let Dean listen to the Annihilator. I am going to tell him point blank that all he needs to do is combine Odin bass slightly elevated and the upper mids / treble response of Annihilator and he will have an IEM that is at the level of Jewel and Traillii. Literally just copy it.
True. This thread does a lot of the market research for free:

A few ideas: If its a flagship, continue the lore where it left off. Put a lava faceplate on it. Call it something like "Ragnorak" - The IEM that will signal the destruction of other flagships 😈.

Non flagship: Loki - God of Mischief with an emerald green faceplate. I like the black & gold but it's starting to get saturated. I think the collectors in here wouldn't mind some green.

Looking forward to God of War much?

I was referring to the Scandinavian Norse mythology. Just did a Google search of that game. Looks neat. I don't have a Playstation but I would watch the cut scenes.

Spending the morning with Dave Stryker’s newest release As We Are, the XE6 does well with the drums and acoustic instruments. Next up is StandArt by Tigran Hamasyan the piano sounds right to me, with what sounds like added weight to the notes, anchored again by percussion, there is acoustic bass in this recording stays back, even though the XE6 could make it too forward it does not. All the time the clarity of the symbols and snare drum hits keep tugging me in.

I am now in Cape May NJ at a rented house, the house is from the early 1900s and in the town a couple blocks from the beach. I leave tomorrow morning early.

Check out Beach Plum Farm if you have time…and Bank Street for their voodoo shrimp.

…and Peace Pies, of course.

Liquid Links 'Martini' landed today, I've not yet tried it but certainly a beautiful looking cable and fantastic build quality. I love the attention to detail with branding etc too.

A nice unboxing experience too for those who care, I certainly appreciate that first experience with a new toy.

Nice looking cable. What are you going to try it on first? Jewel? Thunder? Venom is on its way.

Wouldn't he be in Canjam Socal? You couldn't tell him there?

Do you know if it's going to be a flagship release?

As for Elysian, I don't think there'd be such a fuss if his products weren't as good and as rare to find as they seem to be. High demand plus low supply means the hunters get ancy. I get the frustrations, but the fact that he's still attracting so much interest despite the abysmal buyer experience suggests he's making a drug many will wade through consumer Hell to buy. Otherwise no one would bother, lose interest and his business would die.
It better be.
