Ark Good unprocessed sound with natural balance. Definitely better than APR and STR

APR and STR very close. Maybe slightly better highs on APR. Both could use the low end filled in a little. 0 +6 +8 +6 +4 0 -3 -6 -3 -8 helps some

M&A a little too much noise reduction leaving slight coloration and lack of detail but still not bad.
