Right now I'm listening to Mark's CF09 disc, but yeaterday I was digging a pirated copy of Joan Baez' Diamonds and Rust and Lonnie Johnson/Elmer Snowden George Daniel turned me on to several Fests ago. Later I plan on giving Mileage Gilbert's 3 Faces, DSOTM, and Holly Cole a turn.
My observations so far:
VERY BLACK background
Very Good Dynamics
Excellent tonal balance
AIR, AIR, AIR
Great Bass Extension
For those of you who may be night-owls or want to listen and not bother the family and have a CF amp sitting around give some Stax 'phones a listen.
I may give the V20 a listen in this configuration when I get home.
Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.
