        Salary isn't about worth or fairness, it's about what you can leverage in a negociation. My professional mantra.

        In the end there has to be substance, yet there are lots of people with high level of kung-fu and skill who only earn half what they could.

      Cambridge Melomania Touch's IEM's tuning is quite addicting, especially the punchy bass & sub-bass rumble. Soundstage isn't that bad either.

      I was so excited to pick up 3 packages: Cambridge Melomania Touch buds, S21 Ultra and case, until I realized the phone never arrived...WTF?

      Be2 pads finally arrived for my VC. Let's see what's the hype and whether it's enough to pull me away from the Universe pads.

        Cool. By the way, did Zach recommend BE2 with VC? I think VC and VO differ in pads preferred if I recall correctly. And which covering material?

        Mine is lambskin non-perforated. I believe during ZMF November, Be2 was also bundled in with Universe and Auteur. I bought my VC last year and Be2 was never included, but people kept talking about it, so I just had to give it a try and bought it used. Going to listen it this entire week before drawing any conclusions, along with rolling the transformers of my 3F.

        Initial impressions is that it pulled me more closer to the stage. The vocals are slightly more intimate, which is something I really want since I find the vocals are a bit laid back on the VC (are tube amps supposed to help? Never owned one). I hear more of difference between Universe and Be2 than between Auteur and Universe. Still like the crazy fast left/right panning effects from instruments on the Universe.

      For me, discovering SBAF and acquiring ZMF VC, Asgard 3, Bifrost 2, 3F and Pi2AES in 3 months are the only things worth remembering for 2020

      Spent my holiday shopping mostly on clothing this year, but didn't feel complete without buying audio equipment, so I finally bought Pi2AES!

      Amorphous transformer finally came in for my 3F. Def prefer this over nickel for my VC. Getting more WOW factor lately compared to Asgard 3

        The extra airyness in the treble region from amorphous made tracks that are already warm more "breathable". VC is already warm, so nickel made it a bit too warm for tastes, but I can see nickel can be quite good for other genres. I listen to EDM mostly, so amorphous is a good balance for me.

        keep listening to them! they do warm up a tiny bit and sound cleaner after a few days of use from my experience, especially cleaner in the subbass

        Yup been listening for days. It's becoming quite distracting when I'm trying to work lol, especially with the Universe pads. Now I'm debating if I want to go down the tube rabbit hole. No experience with tube amps at the moment.

      Maybe I should sleep early instead of listening till 3AM w/ DSHA-3F lately. If anyone selling amorphous transformers, please let me know =)

      Going to refrain from posting on main DSHA-3F thread since I'm still a novice at writing impressions. Quick thoughts coming from Asgard 3:

        As mentioned by others, subtle improvements across, BUT, I like how it made my VC slightly less congested, especially in busy passages. Because of better image separation, I can hear the vocals much clearer now, more enjoyable, and slightly more intimate. Slam hits slightly harder. Now I'm curious how the amorphous transformer will sound and whether it'll make the VC less dark. Ok back to work I go.
