TOUR RULES
 
  • Treat the unit with respect.  I know you will - but stating it up front.
  • On receipt of unit, you need to advise (in this thread), then take around 14 days to listen and thoroughly test Cayin N6. During (or at the completion of) your time with the N6 - feel free to post impressions in this thread - then also post a review of Cayin N6 in the N6 product page.
  • I'd like to think we can all do this reasonably well -  the whole purpose of this exercise is the actual review.  It doesn't have to be a book.
  • At the completion - you send the N6 (carefully packaged) to the next person on the tour.
 
 
I must make it clear you require to be an established member, trader feedback is also preferred for this application. (but all applications will be considered). Once we gather the list a final selection will be announced in this thread, the OP updated with a list of participating members and the tour can commence.

Hi H2O, 
 
I have to withdraw from the tour, my work has placed me in a new role which require me to do further studies.
They've enrolled me into a course part time, so I don't think I have time to write up a proper review to do the N6 justice.

Just so you guys know, we also have a default list of members used on Australian tours, they will be included in the N6 leg. 
 
We probably want to top out at around 10-12 members (max)
 
So keep the posts coming guys, spots are still open.

  Pick me, PICK ME!!!

 
Luckily, DJScope is one of our default members attending the Cayin N6 tour.
 
Because he writes significantly in-depth reviews, and simply cannot be stopped with ultra-specific participation.
 
Our hats go off to you, DJScope.
