I should like GS better. It is very close to LM, has open, clear highs and low distortion, but I still like the slightly different tonal quality and je ne sais quoi of LM better. AT is virtually identical to GS.

RVC High quality vinyl with quiet surface but slightly muddy sound compared to others.
