The hair on the back of my neck stood up
After break in I sat down with Gary Karr "Super Double Bass" XRCD24. LIM XR 007. My favorite selection is "Amazing Grace". The hair on the back of my neck stood up and I was blown away by the authority and depth of the 600's. I absolutely Love them and I am most happy with my investment. Then to contrast the power and depth of Gary Karr, I played Rebecca Pigeon on SACD singing "Spanish Harlem". Again I was blown away because her voice was so soft and yet right in front of me and I could hear every syllable of every word. Of course I played a lot more music but those are a couple highlights.

I could go on
The combination of the 600s with the FR 30s truly blows my mind! This is not just going from a 300 watt same company design to 600 this is akin to putting a decent receiver on a really good set of speakers,then switching to class A separates which as you can imagine sold aLOT of separates, but I digress this is just an amplifier upgrade which makes no logical sense?? I could go on about control detail,soundstage but I am talking about the trick to the magicians! Thanks so much for the opportunity to have these fine works of art in my living room! Even if I could lift either one of these pieces they are not going anywhere anytime soon! Here's to outstanding innovations

Low level details being heard for perhaps the first time
I would not call it etched but rather low level details being heard for perhaps the first time that add a sense of reality to the presentation. Kind of like what you experience when you first see a movie displayed on a 4k screen. When all of these improvements are added up, the BHK 600s represent a very significant upgrade to my system.
Unamplified instruments and voices sound as close to the real thing as I have ever
The 600's let you listen into the music more deeply, more realistically. The orchestra provides a good benchmark here again. Un amplified instruments and voices sound as close to the real thing as I have ever heard them and are better delineated in space.
The soundstage seems bigger
Percussion instruments jumped out right away as having much stronger attack. Then, the soundstage seems bigger and like each instrument or voice is more sold. Really excited.
