Hi all - longtime lurker and first-time poster here, with an "urgent question": I've been living with the EML XLS 300 for a few years now. Owned and liked the Elrogs under the original manufacturer until one of them blew up. Also owned the Takatsukis but found them a bit overly delicate and wispy with a small soundstage and just not enough power. Not long ago, I A/B'd the EMLs with a pair of Sophia Princess - not Royal. The latter were rougher sounding than the EMLs, which is what ultimately made them inferior. But they also had punchier dynamics, such that in many ways they were a more involving, toe-tapping presentation that I found extremely involving. I've been bugged about this ever since. I keep reading that the Royal Princess have reliability problems so am a bit scared of another Elrog-type situation. So I am wondering whether somebody could tell me whether the ACMEs or the Psvane WEs, or something else, would be eminently recommendable for those dynamics I crave? Should I not fear the Royal Princess, do they solve the rough edges of the cheaper Sophia models? Any comments/wisdom much appreciated, thx!
