Well, made the decision to go w Andrey's new Terminator. Just spoke to Heino the co-designer in Finland (how many audio products are a UK/Russ/Fin/NZ/US/Aus/Pol co-operative venture, as is my analog front end?), and his reports on SQ impvts are sufficiently compelling to buy. Critically, deeper and more articulated bass, sweeter warmer treble and more spacious, deeper mids. Sounds good to me.
