Think there is merit to importing from USA as $999 = £588. Even if you get hit for vat and customs still saving over UK retail.
SE846 is smooth and effortless. Great bass impact but no bleed between frequencies. Instrument placement perfect. Detail is there but done properly as lesser implementation elsewhere when bringing detail sounds thin or overcooked. Not here. And engineering is top notch.
Have already sold the Phonak. Thinking of selling the SE535 too in order to help fund a new dac/amp.
I truly am shocked that you sold your beloved Naks mind you I'm about to do the same with my IEM's.
When have you ever heard of me being hit for Customs... VAT (Value Added Taste) go wash your mouth out...
we should talk on the dog some time soon, be nice to catch up, hope the Charity work is tickety-boo
