    New Jenny Lewis album. Thumbs up. Appreciate the cover art, too.

    I'm looking forward to reviews. Looks like you have approached this with a great deal of thought. I used to work in industrial support for lens and camera production. So manufacturing process details are of interest. I might have to start saving up my $$$.

    “If it’s me and your granny on bongos, it’s the Fall,” the singer Mark E. Smith, who peremptorily hired and fired dozens of members of the Fall, once said. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/22/arts/music/band-name-reunions.html

    HI Jose, Majority of sales will be through my website (direct). Distribution will be hard to achieve but of course, if I can strike an acceptable deal with distributors then we will definitely build a network. Wachara, my film isn't different from regular PET. We just make it ourselves which I find a little cool! Kinda like how Grand Seiko grows their own Quartz crystals. The RR 1 Conquest is almost 98% made in-house. The only part we don't make ourselves is the Earpad, I spent a year trying to make one that looked production quality but did not succeed. I finally had to go to China for it. Our Earpads are made at the same factory where many big name Manufacturers get theirs made as well. RR 1 Earpads are bespoke, not off the shelf.

    Nice! Is the property of your film any different than a typical Mylar film?

    Your policy about pre-orders seems to me quite logical and honest. I want to try one of your headphones. Will you do direct sales (through internet) or through suppliers?

    Wachara, Total area is 80 x 70mm, well...79.90 x 69.90mm to be exact. Diaphragm is a in-house sub-2 Micron PET. We tried 600Nm but due to the poor Young's Modulus, it was almost impossible to tension and/or get any decent bass. To successfully use a Nanometer film, I personally think the Matrix requires better filler geometry to improve the Young's Modulus but, with current Polymer technology it is difficult to produce such filler based thin-films at such thicknesses. Diaphragms are manufactured by our other family owned Polymer company.

    Hi Aumkar, Wow, 0.45 mm D/S distance is nice. How big is your diaphragm? Wachara C.

    We will be exhibiting at a certain Headphone show in SoCal this June. I think by then I will start taking orders. I didn't do any pre-orders because I don't like holding my customer's money like a lot of other companies. I will only take orders when I have enough inventory to sustain a ship within a day or 48 hours policy. Currently, production is my main issue as all our Stators are Aluminium and require strict dimension accuracy while drilling. Aluminium unlike FR4 can be easily bent and cause several non-linearity issues. There are better ways to machine a Stator other than on a CNC but it understandably increases the production cost and complexity. Our D/S gap is 0.45mm and our spacers have a maximum tolerance of 0.005mm measured across 250-200 points which is as good or even better than STAX. STAX uses brass to combat machining challenges, we use Aluminium with more methodical operations. I am trying my best to increase my production output but there's only so much I can do without comprising QC. If I was here to make a quick buck, I would take taken pre-orders already. Regards, Aumkar

    I want to make a cunningly linguistic snark about this, but I am tongue tied.

    Listerine was initially marketed as a disinfectant floor cleaner. Then as a cure for gonhorrea. And finally - pow - as a mouthwash! But I'd sure like to try the Jack Daniels flavour version! And I certainly wouldn't dip my old man in it
