Also - I asked this before but didn't get an answer:
Are the early batches of LCD-3's more likely to have the "veil" or whatever problem with the driver? Anyone has a trace of opinion on that?
There is no answer to your question other than a guess and perhaps a wild guess at that. Who knows what to expect. At first everyone swore that there was no veil and then there was, then supposedly a tighter QC process came into being because drivers were failing. Returned "veiled" LCD-3's turned into exchanged LCD-3 that now no longer had the unofficial mysterious veil and a better QC only to find that someone with the more closely watched LCD-3 had a driver fail and perhaps sound different at the same time. Wild guess, crap shoot, game of roulette perhaps.
