And I'll leave tonight with this - the XA, albeit with a bit more power, smokes the F3 from top to bottom. Far superior bottom end, better balance, smoother less grain on top. May be a keeper (but how many times have I said that) !
Vinyl or not I've got a Chet Baker disc on, great closed mike recording. Damn may as well in the room, well he is ! Standing between the LaScallas and in front of Pass Labs Class A power. Im not sure the LS have ever sounded better. Even my wife was commenting on them today and she's heard mucho gear run through these parts ?!
