Genuinely, I seem to have beaten it.
I have worked for years to get the sound I wanted, and by magic, I seem to have won.
I thought it sounded pretty good at Scalford, but now I've added the Well Tempered deck and tweaked a few bits, and by God it sounds decent enough.
I could maybe use a touch more bite in the mids, but the ESLs are so clear that it's realistic enough, and anything that would add a bit of sharpness would take away from that stunning transparency.
I have JM Jarre, live in China on the WT at the moment. The yoots and SWMBO are all out, and it's wound up a bit, and I really LOVE it. Deep bass rattles the windows, every time someone speaks I turn around, because it sounds like someone in the room. And when I sit in the hot seat and listen, I feel like a teenager again.
Christ, it's good when it all comes together.
