So as it seems we're gently moving back from profound world-threatening matters to unnecessarily expensive audio equipment, I'll be trying something different but mostly not so different this week : ) My A&K got lonely, so I found it a companion.

I can already decisively say that when comparing them, the Onyx Black looks sexy AF.

It's an exhaustive process to make, so the R&D cost is high. They take large stock piles of cash, incinerate them, and press the ashes in between two 3-ton blocks of pure gold, and repeat the process until the ashes form a semi reflective surface, whereupon you can start to see the faces of the souls who gave up the money. They then polish the surface to a mirror finish using diamonds, so that tears can roll down the surface without any friction. They truly spared no expense. Worth it IYO, YYMV, OBGYN.

Looking forward to your thought, but I’m expecting what the differences are between the 380 versions. I’m not critically listening so I can have expectations lol.
