    Well, only spectrographs for now until it's late at night and I can do distortion measurement more accurately. I think FR graphs have been posted ad nauseam... Or nah, just kidding. Will post FR if anyone would like to see, but I think spectro is more telling in this case.

    So what's the difference?

    Do I even have to tell you which one is which and what the effect is? :D

    @Ishcabible, please let me keep this one for a few more days (at least until the end of the following week) since I would like to let a few people try it out. It really sounds as good as it measures! If you have to ask, I DO regret trading it to you, so... yeah, you are one lucky bastard! ;)

    Of course! It'd be nice to get more impressions.

    Is there a general consensus on whether the dust covers should be left on? I do remember Ravi saying leave the dust covers off, later he says leave them back on, OJ says leave them off...

    ^^ Just try each option for yourself and make a decision. There's no absolute right or wrong. Just goes with what sounds best to you in your chain.
