I ordered this.

Samples from comparison on piano with Schoeps CMTS 501.

Wow, nice, cool looking too! I also liked that sound better than the Schoeps. By the way, did you ever do a shootout or at least some recordings with your new Manley?

Manley test here.
We should rather discuss this on Gearslutz. Let us give here the first place to music.

You're quite right, sorry! Actually was just going to write you an email anyway!

Hi John,

Bravo!

I just listened to your performance of these lovely ballades in recital. Not only is each rendition thoughtful and beautiful in turn, but you bring a wonderful unity to them all as well. I've often thought that these pieces have moments of deep introspection which you reveal so well in your playing. There are so many really lush harmonies too. Once in awhile I sense Brahms in his writing giving a nod to Schumann. I've always been especially drawn to No. 4. It is very catabile, having moments of reverie but also of romance. This is Brahms at his best. Throughout, you give us the burnished sound that is so characteristic of this mature composer. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing this set. Excellent playing!

David

Hi David,

Wow, thanks! I really appreciate the compliment, and agree with you absolutely about the Brahms. I'm glad I didn't do him a disservice to you!

Thanks again, it means a lot!
John
