Thanks for the info. I have heard the full featured unit, I think it was EAR 864?? and loved it, but it was too pricey for what I wanted. I will look into the 834 models with volume control. I agree that it doesn't fit the mid fi description, but I could suffer the indignity of better quality if I had to.
