The driver sounds effortless at low volumes as the music bounces around in space. Since the diameter is so large it's almost like listening to a planar speaker lol. At high volumes, not many (if any) full range drivers can match it.

No. It's slower and less detailed than the best (compared to the more expensive Fostex and TB i have) but OVERALL as a wide range driver, with help on top and bottom, it excels in scale, size, dynamics and relative smoothness making those more detailed drivers sound smaller in comparison.

Pick your poison... and ENJOY!

Zilla

I'm back. Got home yesterday.

Just woke up - its 0825 Tuscon time.......

1625 local time!!!! thank crunchy I don't have to work. Looks like sleeping on the plane for the first time ever screwed my normal, exhaustion based jetlag recovery system, right up.

On a happier note the Emkens are soothing my sore head and my cat has forgiven me abandoning him to the in-laws......

On the very few times i've traveled trans-oceanic, that technique has certainly worked.
