. The Phoenix sounds great, but it doesn't do the same thing as the 660. I'm not saying the 660 is a hands down winner over the Phoenix, but if I want that thing the 660 does, the Phoenix is not a suitable substitute
Really there is no cloudiness to the 660 at all. I tend to agree that you might have tried a funky one. If anything, I tend to find it super clean in a beautiful way (if that makes sense) which is also why I often use it instead of a Fairchild in vocal situations (the Fairchild tending to add a bit of beautiful weight to things at times which is gorgeous on bass, overheads, in fact many things...)
