I found them "hi fi" too compared to the vintechs as well. I think its the custom output jensen transformer that gives it that sonic signature. But don't get me wrong, thats a good thing. It makes it more unique in my book than the other neve cloners.

I respect that it doesn't sound exactly like a neve 10xx module.
