Just took a quick listen on my crummy computer speakers... I'd agree that the 184 is a little hotter in level than the 140. I was initially feeling good about the 140, yes, it seems a bit less upfront, perhaps more natural, the 184 a little more "harsh" by comparison, a little brighter, possibly a teeny tiny bit less depth, but disregard these comments, I cannot assess anything properly until I put these clips on some good monitors and balance the levels. I'm sure the level imbalance is playing tricks on me... and I should really NEVER listen to anything on cheap computer speakers anyway.
Thanks for posting these clips!!!
