    Selling the pair I bought from @Gaspasser 2 weeks ago.
    Used exactly twice since receiving it (was waiting for the Radial Twin-ISO to re-evaluate, today).

    Decided to stay with the Utopia + T4 combo :)

    Original thread with pictures here.

    Selling for the same price of $2800 shipped (CONUS) for Friends and contributors.

    Just a friendly tip, but before you decide to sell the combo, try it with the Jot R's baffle compensation switch OFF. I had once put up the exact combo for sale, but withdrew it after finding out what a difference it makes. I know doing so kills the sub-bass, but vastly improves the sound in many ways that it was an acceptable trade-off for me.

    Great deal! Love the RAAL (I use it with Yggdrasil > dual aegirs but it's still quite good out of the Jot R).

    Dual Aegirs and a sealed 18 do wonders

    Don't you want a second pair to wear behind your ears for movies? :p

    Edit: > let me patent that...

    I too preferred the Utopia to the Raals.....

    Dude, I predict that you'll have your pair up for sale by this summer ;)

    Just kidding!! I've pretty much earned the title of Gear Cycler South Asia Edition by this point....

    No way of auditioning ANYTHING in a small town in Spain with or without COVID.

    So we buy and sell as that's the only way to try. :punk:

    It's your Carbon that has gone missing on its way to me from Sweden....:(:(:(

    Just curious @Clemmaster @Gaspasser - did you guys run the Raals alone or in conjunction with a subwoofer?

    On its own.
    I do have an Airmotiv 10 sub right next to my bed that I thought about using, but I'm too lazy to wire it up...
    I might let go of it too, as it's been used as a night stand / audio platform for years now...

    I didn’t feel the need to run a subwoofer. I used it with Bifrost 2, so I thought the bass was fine.
