I agree with you 100% oz..... When I bought my .v4's from the dealer, I listened to the .v3's and .v4's side by side, but I chose to go with the .v4's just to minimize upgraditus... but honestly the difference was only slight, and not necessarily worth the extra money.
Prices since then have jumped 2 times already but now they are putting the same drivers in a new cabinet. But as I have stated before, I have a feeling that they will be upgrading Sigs very soon. They can't be thinking that they will have both the Studio's and the Signatures running in cabinets that are extremely similar. And the sound for many with an untrained ear, will be very close. How would one be justified by getting the Sigs at all..
I am out of town, and have the opportunity to listen to the Sig S6 & S8 .v2 for the first time in the morning. I have the S4 .v1, and I'm very happy with them, but will be looking to replace the Studio 100's in my great room in time. But I also have no problem waiting to see what the Sigs next iteration will be first....
