From how you described the Continental v2, I'm rather interested in trying it. (Just that I'm using a stock one not modded one so I'm not sure how it'll turn out :X)
In your opinion, do you think the Continental v2 goes well with all genres or it's unsuitable with some?
$350 in total.
The whole rig (modded ES10 + Continental v2) is probably over $1000 for me.
But victim count has stacked to 7 non-audiophile today.
And my ears can confirm this madness. I'm hearing obvious differences between different sources. So far my MacBook Pro is the best source to feed the Continental. Everything else... I can hear "technical issues" with.
