    Oh shit, no wonder, you were using the orange channel - modern red all the way IMO! (my fav. settings were Pres-11:30, Bass-10:30, Mid-9:30, Treb-12:30)

    He was on the red channel? It's a 2ch Recto, there's only one anyways.

    I actually prefer the recto in this instance, that being said I've always been a fan of slightly scooped tones.

    5150 sounds better in the 'expected fit' sense, for sure. But I personally prefer the Recto. Been liking recto tones a lot lately though :p

    Nah, the top channel is orange (despite the appearance of the LED in the pic), and I assume he used the channel cloning switch on the back to make it orange modern, which makes it close but def. not the same as modern red
