Tom, thanks for your impressions about the V6, Quad, V3. I have only ever heard the V3 and while a recognize its limitations, it just hits the spot for me in terms of signature and presentation. Interesting to hear your take on the V6 - I tend to hear things similar to you so I'm a bit surprised about that model. It seems that some people love it, others not so much.
And for those who mentioned disappointment from the original JH13 - I too was never a huge fan of it, but I gotta say I'm really impressed with the new FreqPhase iteration. It's a big step up to these ears.
