I have had a chance to listen to the full line of ASR components . Yes what Harry says about the unit is true . I have had all kinds of gear over the years and nothing has made such a drastic and ovewhelming difference in my system . My locale dealer has been selling the ASR for close to 8 years and I never took note of it . It looked just to nice and with its plexiglass cover and being used with Avant Garde Trio in a room that is 14x19 it just didn't do it for me . After the TAS review I brought the unit home to try with my gear and holy smokes . The unit is as Harry says it is . For the first time in years with my ear right at the speaker there is no hum zero nada nichts. This unit is so black, the musicians jump out at you playing their instruments like never before . As the musician moves his instrument while he is playing you can hear every change that is made on the stage . This was something that has never happenened to this degree before . The space where the music was recorded is more evident with the ASR than anything else that I have had or tried out in my rigs . I borrowed the unit for one week (lots of 2AM listening sesions)and no matter what I played , everything was just simply more alive. Needless to say I Bought the Emitter II Exclusive, the Basis will have to wait till Xmas .
