I enjoyed your review of the CS3.7's, having had a little experience with earlier models.
You mentioned ".... you will hear the hardness and excessive upper-octave energy that is actually present on far too many classical recordings ..... and .... the bad moments of tenor and, particularly, soprano voice."
Can you please confirm a couple of things for me about your reviewing practices (and other reviewers too, if you know):
1. As you reference equipment you use allows appropriate switching, do you experiment with absolute polarity settings for each of the recordings that show the adverse sound quality tendencies you describe above?
2. Additionally, if it is vinyl do you experiment with VTA through finite arm height adjustments to ensure inaccurate settings are not the cause of the unsatisfactory sound quality?
