Auditioned the entire Campfire Audio lineup with PAW Gold at the recent Portland, OR meet. Bought Orion at the meet and picked up Nova on the drop. Darn good stuff. Would love to get Lyra and either Jupiter or Andromeda as my end game IEM at some point!

I would love to have the top 2 on the lineup also. Someday. Hehe! By the way, can you please make a brief impression on the Nova vs Orion? Just wanted to know how they differ. Thanks!

From the brief audition of the Campfire lineup with PAW Gold, Orion was more aligned with the house sound. On the warm side of neutral response. Organic bass. Good mids. Smooth highs. I felt Nova stood out as being different with quite punchy bass and more sparkle. I bought Orion on the spot and decided to join the Nova drop to get a good taste of the CFA sound. I hope others enjoy, too!

Thanks a lot. This got me more excited to receive mine! I've been reading on the head-fi thread. I also saw your comments there. Most of the other people's comments got me sold early on. I guess the hype on the Andromeda is real (I mean I believe they're that good) but it's currently beyond my budget limit. Hehe. Though still hoping to have them one of these days. Thanks again!

No problem. No hype on Andromeda. Just good solid engineering, both sonics & ergonomics. It's great to see CFA get such great sound out of 5 drivers. Hopefully this will start to dispel the popular belief that more drivers equals better SQ. Maybe...

Yeah maybe not yet, or I just improperly used the word "hype." The Andromeda is starting to gather some following on the thread and for sure, it will spread eventually. I admired the CA IEMs the moment I saw one and got curious on how they sound. I'm an expat in the middle east there's not much selection of gears available, even the mainstream ones. So most of my purchases were blindly done. I had to rely on reviews and user opinions. So I just hope most of those positive impressions on the Nova were true (even though I know reviews are highly subjective).
