Can anyone tell me which of the two (W3 or UM3x) is more of the sonic successor to the UM2? I have had and enjoyed the UM2's for many years and am looking to upgrade while keeping roughly the same sound signature. I know the UM3x have the same physical form factor, but, even with all the discussion here, it is hard to tell whether they or the W3's sound more similar.

Bonus points if anyone knows if there is anywhere in the Chicago area where I can A/B the two. I know I can order both and return the one I like least, but that seems unfair to the retailers.

UM3X definitely succeeds UM2. As much as I, too, enjoyed UM2, UM3X improves upon EVERYTHING while maintaining the same warm, smooth and natural presentation.

W3 is a different animal altogether.
