...which is, as you say, the likes of Lorde, Billie, Lana (Del Rey), Lily (Kershaw), Rosie (Thomas), BEYRIES, Brandi (Carlile), Angel (Olsen), Dido, Christina (Perri) and Maggie (Rogers), to name just a handful of my absolute favourites.
Very nice taste 😉

Two years ago, I auditioned Legend X and Phantom. EE let me keep them long enough to take them with me on vacation. I ended up buying both. Fast forward to today and I am in the same vacation location with Legend X and Mark Knopfler’s Private Investigations album sounds fabulous.

It never came to my mind to listen to this album with the LX. I was so wrong, it is an outstanding combo!!

How much of an upgrade is the LX over the Bravado MK2? Are we talking marginal or orders of magnitude?

By a fairly large margin in every aspect.

Give SAYGRACE (her FMA record, especially), Lianne La Havas and Holly Humberstone a listen. They're three of my current favourites as far as contemporary female artists, which I admittedly don't listen too much to. Carly Rae Jepsen's Emotion record is an underrated classic as well, IMO.
+1 on Lana Del Rey on the LX. I would add London Grammar as well to the list and I’m a metal, hardcore and punk fan… says a lot.

Mest is warmer and has different presentation, more relaxed and not punchy as Hero.
This is due mostly of stock cables.
Mest has bigger stage, Hero has mids more forward and it has intimate presentation.
Hero bass kick harder instead Mest Mk2 has softer bass presentation.
You can live happy with both :)
Thank you. Needed this.
