Lives for gear
I think you're on the right track. I prefer the old tweeters (vetical standing) to the new ones. The differences are subtle, but the tweeters are not as harsh to my ears. Actually, most mixing engineers agree about this and DJui5 is the only person I've ever heard say the opposite (he's also the only engineer I've ever heard talk bad about the Hardy pre's so to each his own).

I bought mine when I went through my Dave Pensado admiration stage. He was advocating the older NS-10's and I love his mixes, so I figured what the heck. I bought a used pair on Ebay ($450) and a Hafler 9505 ($700), and my mixes translate better than ever!!! I had a lot of the same experience you had with getting things tight on the 10's and having them sound great on my Hafler TRM 8's. They quickly became my "A" monitors, and now I wouldn't want to mix without them. Good luck.
