You know. I'm pretty fcuk'in confused at this point.

What with all these descriptors like "character", "distinct voicing", "more versatile", "equally competent", "similar to", "favors a U67 (sic) voicing as opposed to a U47 (sic) type" - (its U 67 and U 47 - you know how precise those "Germans" are right? but I digress). Sounds like a boatload of equivocating bull**** to me. Based on what you've written before, I don't know if you're saying the U 47 or the U 67 is brighter? I may get slagged off as a gear pimp, but I do put up professionally recorded samples comparing my work to the classics.

Can you supply samples of your new found love against the classics? That would be a whole lot more informational than a thousand colorful words.

Oh fcuk, I must be sleep walking - because I'm not supposed to be here!
