It's back. The magic is back.

That's great to hear. Also confirms the minor dip in performance I heard as well. Much like you, everything is hitting on all cylinders now.
Yes, I would agree with your assessment. I find them to be very clear and natural, yet again.
I think they do what they are supposed to do extremely well, even with intentional distortion within the performance (i.e., distorted electric guitars and vocals). I've listened to some post-punk, and I infer that I can hear behind and beyond the production back to the performance.
Of course, this may be a purely subjective impression, and OMMV.
We're hearing the same things in this regard. I'll just say they have the ability to "sort" musical passages with less confusion while adding a nice sense of ease. Simply sounds like the signal is less impeded. Yes, and it's always safer to say "YMMV". One size rarely if ever fits all.
I knew somebody else would say it better than I could.
I am actively seeking out piano, violin, and guitar music these days.
By the way, "The Gloaming" is a great CD, with "Doveman" Thomas Bartlett on piano. [YMMV, in that not everybody likes the same music.]
Someone - I believe it was you, Mick - mentioned that anything phono-related might not be the place for the GC ICs, since they are not shielded.
Would anyone care to opine as to whether they might work from phono preamp to preamp? Is shielding essential in this application?
I think you'll be fine from phono stage to line preamp. I probably should have said...in my experience, shielded cables have always been necessary from the turntable to the phono stage or SUT. In the case of an SUT, yes, shielded again from SUT to phono stage. When leaving the phono stage, however, you should be good to go with an unshielded design.
