Thanks Muppetface for your impressions comparing the R10's and the TH900.
I do agree that the bass light R10 is better for classical and vocal, it makes you more involved
may be because of the laid back mid of the TH900 causes that.
With the bass heavy R10 I still think the bass response of the R10 is better ,
TH900 may be better in term of soundstage and imaging.
I am listening the takeT H2+ at the moment and I think it has the best soundstage and imaging
(with BATPURE on or not does not make much difference to me ). I also find out that I have to use the
best jumper cable on TR2 and that can make a lot of difference in the performance of the takeT H2+.
After I used the Nordost valhalla the soundstage, resolution, treble and bass extension are much improved
but the sound may be too thin. I stepped up a notch to use the NBS jumper cable (less expensive than
the Valhalla) now I am very satisfied as the sound becomes full with the widest and best soundstage,
best bass response.
I think it is the same level as the T2 + SR009, O2mkI or Aristaeus + HE90 but different flavour.
