I just got back from Phoenix and the PH3d was waiting for me. Initial comparison shows the PH3d is a more sophisticated sound. A touch more micro dynamics, bass, a better grounded circuit, has the analog sound that I was looking for and slight round off of the highs. I believe I can be happy with this unit for a long time. I was wondering if this unit is completely broken in yet or can I expect more over time? Listen to Miles Davis ( Sorcerer) and Art Foxall (Arts back in town) these are wonderful pressings and they have never sounded better. Thanks so much for pointing me in the right direction.
