    If I'm a master of persuasion, Dean will have entertained my advice just shy of begging. I guess we'll find out.

    I mean I’m no psychic but maybe hold out a bit.

    Message Jack. He’s the only one that can diagnose and resolve this.

    I hear the emphasis on bass change from track to track. I don’t feel anything is extracted that doesn’t exist as intended. I guess I was Implying that bass ‘reference’ inherently should be present, and elevated to a level that represents what it’s portraying. If you were to listen to thunder...

    As I sit here listening to my custom LX, I wondered... At what point do we no longer consider bass being thunderous by nature, reference? If you remove that characteristic, it is neutering accurate reproduction. Isn't that what we strive to deviate from? This, to me, sounds pretty balanced and...

    Like I said it was a prototype so I have no idea about anything beyond that. If begging Jack and Dean works, you have my word. It’s the best thing EE has ever created.

    I also agree with this. These prototypes were a different frontier as far as EE is concerned. God knows what was packed inside them but they were musical. It was pretty much like a traillii with EVO bass. Interestingly enough, nothing width or depth wise was lost in the mid range despite the...

    Custom LX is hard to beat. It’s funny how bad it was written off by many upon its inception. To be fair, I think a lot of it had to do with a particular Sony DAP.

    Understood. I think folks will be pleasantly surprised if they turn this prototype into anything. I’m fighting for it.

    I’m with you. I’m not sure I’m allowed to describe what I heard but if I’m am, I’ll gladly provide a brief analysis.

    I can see why you’d think that. I was a hard charger for Odin and EVO, because I really enjoy the EE house sound. Those releases really hit above the mark for me. This prototype was in another atmosphere, but like I said it was a prototype. Dean has a bunch that never see the light of day. This...
