Thanks again, and you're most welcome!I happened to be on the thread when you posted it so I went ahead and read it. I appreciated the comparison between amp 1 and amp 3 as I own both of those amps as well.
Thank you very much! Fascinating about your Certified Cicerone exam! I had to look that one up, but it all makes sense now@Layman1: Reading your review now with great interest, not least because the Katanas were in the running before I went in for the Kaisers.
I particularly enjoyed your reference to Human Traffic and your assessment of Dire Straits’ “Sultans of Swing.” (Indeed I am among the many who has the song always at the ready for auditioning as well as regular listening).
Once I’m done with the Certified Cicerone exam next month I can then compose my own revoew of the K10UAs. I think I’d go mad without at least discussing all things Noble Audio and TOTL audio here in between spending every other waking minute consuming everything about beer (except for actually drinking it!)
Oh, and it's always nice when people 'get' you! Thanks for this
@Layman1: I just love Human Traffic. It’s so cheesy in the best way possible.
Have you seen It’s All Gone Pete Tong? It’s brilliant!
Indeed beer is as much in my blood as music is, and you’re right when you say both hobbies / sensory indulgences are so much for the better when one acquires a bit of knowledge.
Moreover, beer has the edgevover wine imo as the breadth and depth of beer is so much more expansive. A beer can taste like a wine but not vice versa. A Belgian witbier is miles away from an American barleywine.
It’s funny too how beer lovers assume wine drinkers would enjoy sour beers by default, and most wine lovers detest sour beers (probably because it’s expected by default they’d like them). Pretty asinine on both parts methinks.
Anyhoo I’d be inclined to give the K10s a 5 from 5 as they handle everything with aplomb. Are they perfect? For now, in this moment in time, I’d like to say so. Admittedly I miss the bass quantity of the Shures sometimes but there are several other aspects of the K10s’ low-end presentation that have even greater wow factor. They certainly bring the rumble when it’s called for.
Andy Sneap is their new tour guitarist. So now the double guitar GODs of KK Downing and Glen Tipton are no more. Though Sneap will bring a lot to the table. He is single handedly one of the greatest metal album producers who ever lived, producing more than 100 albums. The sound he gets has been a subject of reflection for some time, let’s hope he has production and guitar parts on the next record!I’ll have a listen .
(I can’t believe Judas Priest didn’t choose Ralph Scheepers as their replacement vocalist for Rob Halford all those years ago).
