It's a really fine unit Stephen; I like it plenty

The ET-2 is built a helluva lot better; like a tank! But the ET-3 is striking a nice note with me. A touch more forward maybe...which makes it more lively at lower volumes; which I like. Little harsher perhaps, as the SPL climbs; or maybe that'll ease-up with break-in.

I'm pretty sold on the ET-3.

Three more weeks CD. Still finding it slightly harsh?

Peter, I'm sorry to say I've hardly had any time for critical listening lately.

BUSY season for my line of work; maybe some day soon I can get back to it.

I can only hope. Actually...it might be a great time to send my mf-2250a to Ed for a once-over.

I'd have to make-do with my "back-up" (David) Belles 150a Hot-Rod.
