Analog to Digital
Just got the Furutech GT-40 in last night at my store and did a brief listenind session with my AKG-702s.The GT-40 was able to drive the 702s quite nicely and offered a very detailed sound with good width and image specificity. Vocals were realist... 
"They are here" vs. "You are there"

Thiel 3.7 vs Dynaudio C4
