I have to say something that really does grate me. I have all three TAG components which are all (give or take) 6 months age of each other. NONE OF THEM MATCH. Udo once passed this off as "similar to the paint for a car" but I'm sorry Dr. Z, I don't buy it. Nine grands worth of kit ought to look the same. Meridian do it. Arcam do it. Lexicon do it. So why can't TAG do it? Basically, they messed up with the scratch-attracting gloss finish. It must have taken several iterations to get to the new matt finish. But at who's expense? It's how it sounds, I know. And it sounds fantastic. But a company who pride themselves so much on the aesthetic appeal, I would have expected better. You don't buy a Porsche and have one wing a different colour. After a respray I would expect it to be the same.
