Man, I'll tell you one thing. The cat I bought them from said that moving up from the Ultras to the Reference was pretty major and I didn't know what he was talking about because I couldn't think of anything that really needed improvement. Well, he was right and apparently there were a lot of things that needed improvement that I wasn't even aware of. Transparent has now hit 3 for 3 in my rig and I will be getting a second Reference IC pair to go between the Dodd and the Musical Fidelity amplifier. The Ultras will be used for the two subs and all of my other IC's will be put up for sale shortly.
When I say musical, I mean just that. It will be difficult to describe what it is I'm now being blessed with but I can say with complete certainty that I have never been closer to the real thing. The texture, detail and just plain realism of instruments and their placement is surreal. There is so much more detail in something as simple as an organ that I never knew was there before. It's almost unreal. I can only imagine what lies ahead as I listen to more and more musical selections but I'm looking forward to every blissful moment of it.
Just another quick observation, my sound stage has increased to well beyond double the distance that's between the speakers. More later....
The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.
