I know what you mean Mike... I can remember listening to the Studio Six prototype many moons ago and loved hearing all that extra (new) detail revealed in old familiar song. It really helped me reconnect to those old favorites and gain a finer appreciation for the recording quality and what the artists were really intending. There is so much detail that can get utterly lost on other systems. Some music is so rich and lush in its sonic detail, or just plain raw and emotional. The ST6 is one of those things that has, for me, lifted the veil of cloudy/muddy music reproduction. For example: Hearing the fingers on a guitar, the horsehair on a violin string, the key clicks of a flute, or some small detail in the music comes forward to add to the full bloom of the sonic experience. It's a very life-like, almost eerie, feeling. For me, listening to remastered The Cure albums with my Audeze LCD-2, is like time traveling with the band and joining them in the recording studio for the their first take.
