interesting. they say it's made with a thicker pcb and more copper, but they say the regular cl and vr sound almost identical (except the vr was "more lusciously textured"..."luscious" is a creepy word, btw). however, they said the eq seemed more precise. don't have any idea what that means, though. how can it be more precise? you turn the knob and it changes. they don't say much at all about the performance of the 810e except it's the classic 810 sound. i wanted to hear how it compares to the current korean 810e. of course, they get all nebulous with the sonic terms in bp so i probably wouldn't get what they meant anyway.
