it seems like some prefer to debate design elegance, history, methods, materials, and measurement minutia instead of actual music playing performance. nothing wrong with that unless you are actually wanting to play music.
i hope that some involved in those interesting musings do have a chance to hear the DaVa at some point as i would be interested in their listening perceptions about it. to me i want to first hear it to see if i like it, then maybe understand the tech to see how it did what it did. not the reverse first.
