timbre vs. accuracy is a toughie! it's nice to see that people are paying attention to phase/time-domain issues and not just amplitude/frequency-response stuff. Of course, a lot of this relates to whether people listen to 'acoustic' vs. electronic instruments/recordings, and how many '/'s they can fit into one post .
I have been very curious about the ASG2's, as I like my 1.2s. Bought the new Cardas yesterday, so even a great trade-in offer from Dale will have to wait.
