    You should be able to jump to RDO-198 with some capacitor value change.
    From 12uF to 13.5 uf and 1 ohm resistor from what I searched.

    Boston A400,VR950, DefTech BP10,, Klipsch Forte,KSP-400,KSF-C5,RF3,RC3.
    JBL L20t,L80t3, EPI 20+,T/E 280, Polk 4,4.5,7C, KEF Coda III, Yamaha NS-690, Genesis 3+.
    SUB:Deftech PF15TL+, DCM TB1010, Velodyne VA08BVX10. Pre: HK AP2500. Amps: BB175, Adcom GFA-535,555II, Rotel RB-990BX.

    The newer RDO's are better than peerless? I haven't heard them and I suppose it's objectional.

    Bruce, listen to the Peerless for a while, then switch in the 194s. See which you prefer. You need to wait for the caps to burn in completely too, before you make a final decision.

    From info gathered here in the board it should be the RD0-194, and then the Peerless. However, I still have my original SL1000's in. I'm usually very sensitive to harshness, etchiness in the highs and with mine I just don't hear it. The Sonicaps/Mills probably have something to do with that.

    Hmm. Interesting to here everyones opinions.... and greatly appreciated. Even when I asked the people at Polk I seemed to get conflicting info. Asked what tweeter was originally in them and was told the SL2000. When I bought them there were SL 1000 in them. Polk said SL 1000 and Peerless would not fit. Well, SL1000 came out and currently I have Peerless in them. I will let them play for a couple of weeks and then swap them around to see what I think. In a lot of cases it seems to be a persons individual taste and how they "hear" things.
