  Very nice list of reviews Mike. Any chance that you may someday review the 64 Audio A12?

 
Thank you mate.
 
I haven't tested a monitor from 64 Ears yet. Hopefully, will test in the future.

  A12 is a promising monitor.

  Perfect Seal AR6 scores and review added. 

 
Interesting (as I thought it might have done better on separation and resolution from memory)

Are those 6½ rates for built and comfort based on both your (first) acrylic one + recent silicone one. Or purely based on the latter?

Midrange resolution is nice, but treble gets sticky

 Think as a general resolution. 
 
It is based on silicone only, mate.

Sincerely hope it doesn't needs a refit...
 
From memory I really liked the AR6's sq & signature => I don't worry about that too much

Oh ACS Encore ! Mine had a poor construction and the t2 connector was very fragile, I have reshelled them in acrylic+silicon with a 2 pins connector.
What do you think about their sensitivity ?

Sorry to hear that mate. I hope it is fine now. 
 
Well, if you are talking about the source matching, I can say that ACS Encore is slightly source dependent. It may get a bit veiled. However, I get a good result with Lotoo Paw Gold.

Now it's perfect, I love their sound signature plenty of body that's why I think it's a good think to offer them a second life in acrylic filled with silicon

Yes I agree with the signature description. Encore has a full-bodied note recreation in accordance with the mid-bass.
