Mike,

Having dealt with Phase One, Hasselblad and Leica, the series II Canon optics surpass the Hasselblad / Fuji lenses quite easily. Phase One / Schneider is a bit better, but not by much. The...

Mike,

Good possibility of taking place of a T/S lens. If you look in any type of architecture magazine, they always have the buildings with T/S lenses and straightened lines.

George,

Old Pioneer amps used in the GS were also equalized and had some xover going on. The tweeters though had a passive 6db/oct crossover in the form of a small cap inline with the tweeter. ...

Last time I listened to the ML system was a couple of years ago. I'll have to give the one in the IS350 another listen to hear if they've solved the ringing issue. Probably the best one was in the...

Mr503,

System goals? Ground pounding or accuracy? Budget?

I'd always recommend Dynaudio components above every other brand out there when it comes to accuracy.

Houston has some good optical shops nearby for obvious reasons. Now if they started to do refinishing for the brand C lenses, you would see a huge improvement in their optical quality.
