    I chose to go with PEN with vapor deposed Be for a couple reason's:

    1. The same as you state above, there's a sharp nature to pure Be and many metal drivers that didn't totally gel with my aural taste. I found pure Be material for actually a lesser up front cost on R/D and material. But it just didn't sound the way I imagined for a Be ZMF.

    2. The combination of PEN (Polyethylene Naphthalate) and Be brought a stiffness between that of the Atticus driver and the auteur driver where it's nodal enough to sound very punchy and stiff enough to "surround" you with somewhat planar like sound in a dynamic.

    They are quite different. I didn't want to come out with a headphone that replaced another. Not my intention in building these. Remember I have to expand my personal collection of headphones too haha!

    That's great that they have a different voicing/signature to the Auteur.

    :smiling_imp: the part of the back of my mind that whispers... you NEED these!! lol

    So basically what happened was, Zach created a business to satisfy his own addiction. Which then led to the continued enabling of our own addictions.
    What a viscous, happy cycle... :grinning:

    I wonder if there's an audiophile who collects every ZMF with every single wood type....

    I think the point was, it is extremely presumptuous of you to be making assumptions like that at this point. There are no impressions/detailed measurements/etcetera, let alone, you having actually heard them. It's a waste of your time to write stuff like that and ours to have to read it.

    Some comments imply that, now that the new kid is coming, the Auteur seems worthless to them. That's just a little bit weird, and reminded me not to be that unpatient myself (you shouldn't throw stones living in a glasshouse, I know :zipper_mouth:)
    But I have to say the Verite looks much better to me than the already beautiful Auteur and is simply the most visually stunning headphone I've ever seen. Just like a car-prototype where the cool stuff hasn't been stripped off yet.

    The Auteur was my next headphone purchase after I get my HE-6se's next week. Since the announcement of Verite's I'm glad I'll have another option to choose from. I just hope it has a different enough sound signature from my Utopia's to warrant the purchase. Otherwise, the Auteur it is.

    @zach915m, Do you know if any of the pre-orders will be arriving prior to Christmas, or is it more of a January-February target?
