    Strangely, I preferred the tonal signature of the Zen. SA6 came off as a slightly more shouty, even with the bass boost turned on. Maybe it's a matter of timbre, I really like the timbre of the Zen despite female vocal being more forward than I would like. Need to mess with tips. Could be because it's something new. What the hell is in the Zen?

    Zen is single dynamic with a Dunu in-house made driver and surround.

    Is it too late to participate in this loaner? I'm located in SoCal so I was hoping to get involved at the tail end if it's not too much trouble.

    I just got them. Now I have to listen to them. Damnit.

    first impression of SA6 on my zero output impedance amp the 789 is positive. But I think the output impedance is hiding dark secrets.
