    [11 Dec 2022] Update & Announcement: I'm now having the loaner unit and the tour will begin by sending the loaner unit to @dasman66 on the second week in January next year.

    After seeing @ChaChaRealSmooth 's PSA (on his profile text) and researching package theft rates during the holidays a bit, I'm heavily motivated to postpone shipping to skip avoidable risk.

    Meanwhile, I'd like to see more people sign up to hear this middle-priced yet highly capable product. It's a very interesting change over the auteur og, if not superior to. I like how drivers are better tightened and controlled with the new damping, which resulted in better technicalities to my definitions in several key areas.

    Not to be a bother, but any update to the list, or is it full already?
    No worries either way, just curious.

    Not a bother at all. Tbh, because of the PSA and halted loaners I've been lazy about updating lists.

    Huh. If it's available after another of the upcoming stops, that'd be cool.

    Arrived today.

    Everything in great shape. Only visual issue with the set is that the leather wrap on the upper headband is pulling put out of the metal chassis parts.

    They are much lighter than the cocobolo set i once owned. Sounding great so far, but lots of listening to do.

    Sorted out and on its way to @Zimmer266

    BTW curious what pads are included here? There's on set installed and one set marked "Auteur Pads" in the included ziploc, not sure what the 2nd set is.

    Thanks!

    @ChaChaRealSmooth I saw I'm next on the list but I won't be available for a couple of weeks. Is it possible to move me down a few spots?
