ASR: thank you for the honest impressions, I admire you for this as I, for one, typically have a hard time being really critical on something I heard at a meet if I did meet with the manufacturer.
I am a bit disappointed with your mitigated impressions of Cavalli's LL, I wonder how much this negative impression of flat soundstage and lack of dynamics has to do with the Oppo source? Haven't heard such player but the comments sound typical of issues with less than stellar players.
That is quite possible as Asr is going off of impressions with his KGSS with a plinius CD-101 source which is phenomenal. And as already mentioned, it was meet conditions.
Every other impression of the LL has been that it is right up with the big guns (again under meet impression). I am looking forward to listen to it.
