My Vegas arrived yesterday with a balanced ALO Reference 8 cable. After a day of burn-in I agree with other characterisations of sound – bass is amazing but not at the expense of other frequencies. What I want to add is that much as I loved my previous Shure 535s for rock, R&B and some jazz, strings were quite painful. The Vegas seem to do everything – I can listen to string quartets with pleasure as well as M'Shell Ndegeocello, John Coltrane and Lucinda Williams. I was guilty about the expenditure, but I'd have felt worse if they hadn't come up to expectations. And they exceed them.
How do you like the Ref 8 vs. the Litz? Kinda curious to see what someone thinks who has both from the beginning. EDIT: nevermind, I noticed you said balanced, so it's not really a fair fight
