RE: Michael Hedges?

Hi,

I have no idea about the CP-IW460X.

Insofar as correlating goes, if one doesn't measure it, then it's impossible to correlate it.

That said, I wasn't looking at the distortion elements as closely as I should've at first and was attributed "hardness" at higher volumes to other things. But when I started looking closely and also measuring more, I song a strong correlation with ribbon quality, distortion levels, and what gets heard.

BTW, I want to reiterate that ribbons aren't the only problem. There are many other driver problems. I just want people to be aware -- distortion DOES matter to some degree.
