Campfire Andromeda (2020)
How many times can a classic be reborn, over and over again? We herald the arrival of another Andromeda by Campfire Audio. It's a recipe Ken Ball has perfected since it wowed Head-Fi for the first time in 2016, and Twister6 says 2020 sees this legend "give vocals more focus and improved definition, changing the signature to more balanced".
It's a pocket miracle of soundstage, soaring highs and wow factor. Familiar elements return in its five balanced armatures and T.A.E.C., but throw out everything you thought you knew about it. The characters are the same, the script not so. This is an Andromeda fit for a brave new decade.
Darko.Audio was left rummaging through his audiophile vocabulary to describe what he was hearing. Headfonics adds it's more complete than predecessors, potentially pleasing more ears. If Andromeda sounds like reason to get into the Campfire 2020 spirit then look out also for ARA and Solaris. You can also browse the rest of our IEMs here!
