    These are courtesy of @KenBall from Campfire Audio.

    the nozzle is actually a little long so I made adapters so your tips won’t slide down the nozzle so far. These will be included in the loaner unit but easily removed. Just put them back before shipping to the next person.

    They are much smaller than I thought they’d be. A little smaller than the Andromeda actually.

    The Dorado 2020 is a hybrid iem with one dynamic driver and one BA driver for treble.

    Rules:
    • 5 days per person. If you want more time with them CA is fine with you loaning them for a second 5 days after everyone has heard them. Just let me know
    • FedEx/ups only
    • Insure for $600
    • Friends and most contributors
    • Impressions here

    Please post your location if interested.

    I just got a whole bunch of loaned gear at once so I’m kind of overwhelmed and would like to listen and write my impressions at the end of the tour when they come back to me.

    I am a contributor - not sure why it is not reflected in the tags.

    Can you get it added to your tag by the mods in charge? I’ll add you to the loaner you sound sane.

    Same with @YMO and @shotgunshane

    Although if you have limited time you might wan’t to save it for all the Soranik iem’s thst will be on tour soon. But there’s no problem loaning both. None at all

    Thanks @rhythmdevils, but I'll take a pass on this one. Read the Vega and the Dorado have the same Input/Outside Z weirdness like the rest of the CA IEM Lineup. Also, Dorado and Vega aren't catching my interest dude.

    I might be able to do a Canada and European tour after if there’s enough interest.

    If the Solaris and Pi2Aes ones go well with respect to fees and such I'd be interested.

    It's likely that we need the same person to 'import' the gear at the start of the tour and then 'export' it at the end to get customs fees waived. Solaris will be the test.

    I'm good to take that on.

    Interested to hear some Campfires. In the same city as @Imraan so logistics (and cost dilution if shipping/import-export turns into a drama) should work.

    Edit: To clarify: Dorado, Vega, and your Solaris LE's if possible please.
