Thank you for that. I was starting to feel bad about having two original ZSNs (one with a balanced cable). I don't think I have ever wished for more treble in anything. I want to continue to enjoy what I have...which is too many actually. Yes, I enjoy my ZS3E (black) very much. It has more bass than many of my others but it does not seem overdone. It does not give me a headache. It is also very clear. I like it enough to have put that spare balanced cable on it No idea if it changes the sound but at least I can use it with my balanced sources.
