RE: Thoughts on current 300B's?

Hi Gordon:

Definitely give the Takatsuki TA-300Bs a try! I wasted over a year listening to the JJ 300Bs while waiting for the WE 300Bs to come out. I got tired of waiting for the Westerns and purchased the Takatsuki. If the JJ vs. Takatsuki were a boxing match, it would be over in the first round. Of course, given the price differential, that's the way it should be.

When I finally did get that first (and only?) 2020 consumer pair of WE 300Bs, after a bit of break in, they were the equal of the Takatsuki. However, I couldn't justify keeping both, so I sold the Westerns because they have more value on the used market.

As for the Audio Note 4300E, while they may sound good, unlike the other two 300Bs, we don't know if they pass the reliability/longevity test.
