It really does sound like the K3003 is the way to go. Personally, I don't think the PFE 232 will cut it for you. It's similar enough the GR07, especially on the soundstage front, where it is still more like the GR07 than the K3003, that you may well be left wondering where the extra $300 went.
I was afraid you were going to say that. Sorry about my wallet
Thanks for the feedback. Sounds like it may be time to save a bit more.
