This is hugely compelling. The Moonlight has sounded pretty end-gamey, but I'm realizing I do like a little more bass than natural. That graph looks like a very tasteful application of that. I have some big names waiting in my mailbox when I get back to the US that I am very excited to try. But if none of them quite deliver the all round balance of strengths I'm looking for, then a last desperate shot I have in mind is to sell everything and see if that's enough to cover a Moonlight (or now, Mahina). It won't be anything that can happen any time soon though.Yeah just saw that yanyin x hbb mahina
EDIT: Thought I'd save people time finding the visual comparison:
One thing I'm not sure about in the tuning of either is the almost 5k peak. For me it has been a dealbreaker on so many sets. Admittedly this is just a little ahead of 5k not a true 5k peak, it's not extreme, and there are lower freqs that are higher. But I do tend to hear it in things. Even the Vernus which has several peaks and 5k isn't the highest, I feel like it affects vocals for me. It was the chief flaw (to my ears/preferences) of the BQEYZ Autumn - definitely more a pronounced case there of course. Can't stand the CCA CRA for a minute.
