I think one of the psychological factors leading people to overestimate the 
Mosley Pro series is the relatively good performance of the old TA33's and 
CL-33's, in that many people simply assume the PRO will be much better than 
those two.

Anecdotal evidence suggests it is not a big improvement over them in actual 

However, it's big, it covers a lot of spectrum, and it's mechanically 
sound.  If you do the "brochuremanship" exercises it seems like a smart 
buy. It looks good.  Once you do all the work to get it up and running, 
cognitive dissonance might prevent all but the most empirically rigorous of 
us from admitting it that it is not working so well.

But I'd bet that two stacked C3's would win the horserace just about every 
time, all else being equal.
