QES Labs Variable-Gm
: I was quite taken with it. For me, the real test was the stuff. It sounds terrific. It's great, and I love it. It was a no-brainer for me. Out of the three units, the variable-gm was hands-down the best.

It seems that the variable-gm has a slower attack setting.
Anyway I liked it, loved to hear the original attack.
Probably a blind test would have been useful.
Anyway, the QES labs unit wins for now.
