Enjoying Neil Diamond, Heartlight/Columbia, Track #3: "I'm Guilty".
Everything is beautifully laid out with the K812.
Did I read in a review somewhere a criticism that the K812 have a "L-R" spatial layout, without a clear centralising aspect to their imaging? My experience with the AKGs completely contradicts that misnomer. Elements are solidly anchored in 3-D space, with a well-defined central focus.
Having been "wandering about" among the orthodynamics on the market for the past several years, the AKG K812 offer me a refreshing return to "non-planar" dynamic sound.
The K812 are truly fine, and deserving of TOTL status, in my book [ymmv].
