Thank you. Very well said. We all care about the performance, but the 
ergonomics and 'feel' of a rig are what counts for most of us. 

Therefore, personal opinions do matter

Yeah, really! here is more to life than 2kc Dynamic Range!! 

What about the "Sweetness Factor"?...we KNOW the Corsairs and Omni V are 
SWEET rigs! I'd hesitate to give either one up for anything not yet 
known to me. 

I can't imagine any receiver totally blowing away my Omni V except maybe 
in the worst 5% of crowded and loud situations. Above that, it is an old 
favorite that is a joy to operate! No number captures that quality. 

Most of the radios I have had in the top 15 or 20 on Sherwood's list 
have been really decent performers, but that list will never capture the 
subjective appeal of one over another. I think that is what the 
questions about comparisons are getting at. 

Close-in blocking performance is only part of the puzzle, and a small 
one at that for 95% of operating.
