Going through some Meet threads after a while... and loving every minute of it. Cheers.
I agree with most of people say or speculate about the Omegas after a short audition: More Forward than O2s, lush sound, sound signature much closer to HEs than O2s, easier to drive,... And yes, vcoheda, they can be fatiguing after a while (all-night-long kind of while, but still...).
However I have to disagree on the soundstage issue. Most people impression is that it is smaller than the HE90 and that has to be due to different amplification. The SR-Omega have huge horizontal soundstage, only surpassed by K1000s and R10s (pretty close to the R10s in quite some recordings, actually). The SR-Omega has (quite often remarkably) bigger soundstage than the Omega2 (although a bit diffuse compared with the image accuracy on the later) and same goes with the HE90 (horizontal-wise because the HE90 always gives me the impression of being in an auditorium with higher ceiling if that makes any sense).
I had to jump in because it seems as odd as if people were complaining about bass roll-off on the L3000s or lack of detail on the Qualias. It sounds really weird to me...
Not that I'm obsessed with the Omegas or anything. I might open a bakery in Nordic regions if it ever comes to that
It's just that I feel this is one of the few things I have something to add to the community. Cheers.
