Dave, thanks for posting this review. I too purchased the GEs from EVS after reading other positive reviews. I was not expecting much, just thought, what the heck. I received the additional set of prototypes from Ric. I put the standard GEs on the negative speaker posts of mt Sonus Fabers and could not believe the positive impact. I started laughing at the realization of what this weird looking inexpensive tweak was having on sound of the system. I had recently modified the Sonus Fabers with new caps throughout (Duelund and Obbligato) and had been elated with the improvement. It was a fair amount of work however. To have the GEs enhance the soundstage, detail, coherence and fullness of the presentation really took me by surprise. this was months ago and two days ago I realized I should go ahead and put the other standard pair on thr Bel Canto mono blocks. Ha! I just cannot believe what these things do. The best ROI of any tweak of all time for me. I actually hesitate to call it a tweak given the impact. I have not tied these down yet but I am sure I will, laughing all the while at using the decidedly low tech string included by Ric. I am going to order the RCA for the Burson HA 160D pre/DAC/headphone amp and see how that plays out. The Furutech plug for the extra headphone jack is also of interest to me. I am listening to Marvin Gaye as I type this and the sound is the best I have heard in the gizzilion times I've heard the album. Ric and EVS really found something with the GEs.
