Man, the VO is really something special. I picked up a new Auteur a few months ago and I’ve been listening to it maybe 75% of the time, but if I had to pick between the two I’d go with the VO. It’s amazing that it can give you this level of detail without sounding bright at all. The 3D soundstage is spooky. I can’t pinpoint images as well but it doesn’t matter, I just embrace the overall effect. As @YMO mentioned, the Auteur and VO seem to complement each other well. Two very different presentations that I’m happy to have available.
