Wow, how exciting to have Ken stop by for a visit. As an owner of the JL-3's, I would be greatly honored.
Joe Kubala was here last month and the incredible sound from the Soundlab A1s as we changed each of my cables (pretty much unchanged NBS & MIT for 5 years) to a Kubala-Sosna Emotion was incredible. These are not inexpensive, but when we were all done, the dynamics and resoluton, thanks much to the amps, was simply breathtaking. So meeting Joe was quite an honor as would be the case with Ken.
Herer, it sounds like we might get some insight to the Cat/Wilson sound from Oneobgyn's listening sessions.
