The Cerabase Compact footers tightened things up and opened things up. Dynamics got juiced, even the micros improved. Images retained size and body, about equal to the TAOC, while their borders firmed up. Textures and edge detail came into view and transients sharpened. The net effect of all this was to expose the articulation of the instruments; in turn, communication of musical purpose is enhanced.
Now there was beauty along with the resolution. Finite Elemente Cerabase compact is voiced to avoid over-damping and, I hasten to add, sidesteps sounding like a colouration. They just sound natural.
