Blasto, you'd better change your call name, from what I've heard Robert has activated some sleeper cells in your neck of the woods and you'd better run for the hills, or maybe you call them mountains out there!! So like Seinfeld says "hello Newwwman" Robert will say "hello Blaaasto!" Head-fi built the arrow into the legend it was, and Basto tore it down and created a new hero, THE LECKERTON. Perhaps you were "too harsh" on ye old Arrow, my bet is that a fully burned in arrow, over 200 hrs, is much smoother than "harsh" and arrow owners know this. I picked the arrow on "non-burned in" comparison, but I hope non-arrow owners realize that the arrow is still very much an exceptional amp and definately worth consideration.
