    Well Mike, we can agree or disagree concerning which brands and models we like the best. My biggest complaint with digital besides fatigue factor is that it doesn't sound as real and palpable as even a well recorded cassette.

    Hello Mr Mike.
    Sorry if I said something wrong ,since I'm new to this hobbies.

    Today I auditioned 30.2 with NAT SET monoblock. The voice was so full of body but I still miss some bass and I think it kinda rolled off in high. The equipment separation was good only some albums.

    Then I auditioned Diablo120 with their Mojos(different dealers). I'm amazed with the soundstage, image and how clean they produced them(is that mean they bright?), but instantly I miss the Midrange and full body voice feel of Harbeth and NAT.

    Will Diablo produce better midrange when pair with Harbeth??

    I still waiting to try Luxman next

    Thank You Sir.
