there's no way to say this nicely.

If you were Option B, well, you'd probably be happily married by now.

Initially, I thought the "brand b" sacrificed the AQ's ability to present long, graceful decays. But when I focused only on crash cymbals, for instance, I realized that the Kimber did, in fact, produce equally well-expressed decays; it just had a persistent way of redirecting my attention to attack transients—the initial pulses of energy from percussive sounds such as piano keys, drum heads, and metal shakers.
Does this review fall into the catagory of "Golden Ears", or fanciful imagination? Sounds to me like a bunch of hooey.



That review reminds me of the episode of Weeds where the Andy character is trying to get into a school to become a Rabbi so he can escape going to Iraq and only succeeds because he writes an essay on "What it means to me to be a Jew" while being so stoned at a pot convention that it gets written on a Torah like scroll of paper towel while laying on the floor of a female restroom.

There is a chance that these difference were in fact there if the cables in question had some sort of electronics on them, There are some out there.
