Impressions only! All other discussion goes in the regular thread. I'll be adding my impressions here in a bit, and quoting a few posts from the other thread. -- As I have posted already, so far, after listening to a lot of what is mainly jazz, I reckon that the Solaris is best with live performances. Jazz at the Pawnshop, Sunday at the Village Vanguard, Chesky binaural albums and the like are all amazing with the Solaris. That's where the upper-mid emphasis works wonders. Going over some Fleetwood Mac again -- not as good a match.
