Initial thoughts were "Wow, this has some guts to it". I was thrilled to find the crisp clean punch with fast dynamic music, loving the S8 as I did, I hadn't realised how I actually missed that. I went through a bit of an '80s revival weekend playing tracks I had only heard on a Philips music centre or MTV (when it was called Music Box and only on late at night) - just because I wanted to hear how they 'really' sound. A friend called around and asked if someone had annoyed me...... Ooops - I didn't realise but I was playing at volumes that were of a "I am really mad with X and need an outlet for this to avoid going round and stomping on his nuts" type level. I partly blamed a bad week at work, but also I was enjoying the floor and furniture moving slam.
