The two ARC line stages you list here are indeed analytical. And they are also much more expensive than the SHA-Gold. The Melos 333 was a line stage in a while different class of musicality ..... as was the ARC LS5. If you want to get a taste of incredibly warmth and musicality, examples from these companys' products in the 90s, the 333 and LS5 are the two to check out....but consider the BAT VK5 is a great competitor in the same price range and musicality. Some great stuff from the 90s that on the used market make it next to impossible to justify buying new pieces today at the same price as these used.
