Vortex does have absurdly good technicalities as you mentioned but still the Moonlight has notably better imaging and a more musical presentation in my opinion. On the other hand of course the Vortex wins for coherence and timbre. More fatiguing in the treble though, the Moonlight is really good for treble quality without fatigue as others have been noting. Just my two cents.Hey dude... great comments on the Moonlight. I'm kind of tempted to try it out. With so much enjoyment coming from the Penon Vortex though, I'm wondering if the Moonlight is kind of redundant in offering a similar level of technicality (I consider the Vortex absurdly competent in technicalities while still offering great musicality and tone), or does it pull ahead somewhat? I've been in a good place for quite a long time with the EST50, but truth be told I like the Vortex better already. Curious how the Moonlight fits in the mix of current company. Thanks in advance!
