    CONUS. No shipping insurance.

    However, NO USPS. (fedex or UPS please)
    SIGNATURE REQUIRED.

    Focal Elegia
    This is a pretty darn good closed can that doesn't sound all wonky and weird. Warmish and laid back. Lacks technicalities of Stellia or ZMF cans, but also costs 1/3 as much of them.

    I'd be interested. I haven't heard a closed Focal. Or really any Focal other than the Elears I used to own.

    I'm in Michigan.

    I would be interested. I could probably, (finally), meet up with famish though to check it out since I’m also in Austin

    For now I'll put you two separately, but if you two can meet to check it out we can arrange for a slightly extended loaner time period to accommodate.

    Tonight I'll get started on arranging tour order. Start of tour tentatively scheduled to ship from @purr1n at the end of this week/beginning of next week (if that's alright with you Marv).

    If the Elegia is coming back to SoCal, could I take Hooncake's place at the end?

    Guys, too late to join the loaner? Honestly not sure if I can participate as a contributor only..

    Anyways worth a shot..

    I want to compare to my Aeon closed for work... see how it fairs with ZDT jr and my current work SS set up.

    let me know, thanks!
