Everybody, thanks for the clarification on the Nextgen observations. Good to know!
I, too, apologize for derailing the thread. Now, let's get back to the positive reviews!!!
John, I cannot recall the last review that I have read in which the reviewer has said so little about the sound as a result of the transparency of the component. Because of the nature of TVC's and component compatibility, I am thankful of the reminder this serves to all as to the importance of system matching and the danger of taking comments as absolutes.
Congratulations on the positive comments! Additionally, even with the price increase the TAP is still a good value.
