In terms of dynamics and detail and even imaging I have no doubt. There's so many reports of exceptionally good midrange and a smooth non-fatiguing sound that has people listening for hours that I'm sure these are all true. The one thing I am keen to hear is micro-dynamics and subtle inner detail. Because my Talon Khorus have been internally modded with TC and fo.Q tape and some other stuff, if the Moabs best them clear across the board in every respect it will be truly amazing. I have a sneaky suspicion they will. I sure hope they will. Because if they do, then when they receive all the same mods, wow. Wow eee wow wow wow!
I just put in an order for a dark gray pair of Moab’s yesterday with Tammy! I ended up getting the eight ohm version secondary to having a 300b integrated amplifier that only has an 8 ohm tap. I’ll be alternately driving it with a 300 W solid-state. I know, two amplifiers on the complete opposite ends of the spectrum! They will be placed in a somewhat small room, 16 X 11. I have had a pair of Thiel 2.3’s for 20 years, and didn’t feel the upgrade bug until they saw all the new technology and scores of glowing reviews. I also have a Velodyne DD 10 subwoofer, but I’m not sure I will need it.
lol! protoss71, I have FIVE subs! https://systems.audiogon.com/systems/8367
One thing I like about the Moab, the woofers are located top and bottom nearly 5 feet apart. A critical element in getting great bass response is having multiple bass sources. Each Moab speaker is in that respect like having two bass sources. I believe this is one more element in the way Eric is able to get such great sound. Just one of a number of things he's doing different than most.
@millercarbon The woofer is being 5 feet apart what is one of the factors are used to make the purchase of the Moab over the encore. Also the extra 2 dB of sensitivity. Might not get the resolution of the superior drivers in the encore though. And also, since my room is small, I don’t think I’ll miss the mid bass drivers, I don’t listen at super loud volumes anymore, I already have some age related hearing loss. That is on top of high frequency hearing loss from a right ear infection.

Your evidence seem so be that you did not get sick.
You say you work in the medical field and seem to be upset that your hospital is not full.
My sympathies to you.
