On reflection, I've upped the rating. I would have preferred not to give a rating as I don't think it's helpful to distil reviews down to a coarse measure but the form insists. What's the reference for the rating, does it include preference? Exactly. At the original level, I think it may have been dismissed out of hand, and I don't think that's fair.
I would agree that it is balanced.
They will be more favour towards different genres as you discovered briefly in some of your listening. We deliberately tried not to make them to genre centric as this would alienate one group or another, but at the same time we had to chose one or another SS.
I think the Alfa Genus with the flat response filters would suit your musical preference, although you are the best judge of that.
The star rating can be misleading to an extent and if, like i have, read your review in detail, you can better understand the critique and I for one am not upset at anything you have wrote and relish the feedback.
