Well, after spending a entire day listening to the TL'd 1.2's, I finally really started to hear the differences. It wasn't the OMG experience of first seeing/ hearing the SRS's, but more like expanding on the original. That being said, we're keeping the old set. For one, the 1.2's need a lot of TLC; complete re-fabric, new bases, refinish tops & sides. The other factor is the wife. She likes the old ones (couldn't tell a difference). Down the road, I plan on sending my x/o's to VR3, now that I have a taste of what's to come. A third factor is my first set is mint. Really mint. I've got the original paper work, including the receipt. I also like the idea that these are the ones that started it all (they're '85's), at least as far as SRS's go. I'm sure there are those that might not agree with this decision, but there it is. Thoughts?
