Bob, I am very quires about your comments and I have a couple of the questions to ask.
1) What kind of subjective or objective evaluation methods you used to surmise that Venustas was faster then Dominus?
2) Can you elaborate of the Venustas focusing advantages over Dominus and in context of what you made up those conclusions?
3) Can you describe in more details the Dominus imperfections on the top that Venustas eliminated?
4) Can you explain the Dominus disadvantages in bass against Venustas and how should I interpret your suggestions considering the fact that the evaluation took place in context of amplifier that is absolutely bass disabled, a little ported speaker that have very questionable bass authority under 200 Hz, a digital front-end that introduces a bad masking affect to the entire system, the listening room with the reverberation time at 50Hz around 0.5 sec
Also, Bob is you consider that Venustas is so more superior then Dominus than would you accept an offer to exchange: I will give you the superior Venustas for your old and inferior Dominus?
