Been comparing ESP950 vs Paradox. Pretty damn close tonally! Could almost be mistaken for a mis-positioned right channel! Green: Paradox Yellow: 950 measurement rig is always changing so temper the results. Disregard the plots past 10k for the most part. Some notes: 950 has lighter e-stat timbre. Not Stax-y though. I wouldn't haven't listened to it until 3AM last night if it sounded like Stax plastic. Paradox is more fleshed out with better bass power nonetheless. 950 is brighter and more sibilant with instruments/vocals. Paradox shows more overall energy in treble but 8k peak (not big <5dB depending on how you position) is more noticeable to the ear Hard to say which is more resolving and plankton grabbing. Thought it would be 950 but Paradox is more refined and hi-fi to me right now Might come down to the accompanying chain. I'm able to enjoy both immensely. Going to have a tough time going back to face tweeter.
