    Hi guys,

    I'm looking for another OD. I have my sights set on a Hyperpak, but have had my attention brought to the Power Sceamer and the Direct Drive.

    How would you compare them? Would you recommend something else?

    Jaurnig's Gristle King comes to mind.

    The Direct Drive is not open sounding at all. Its very compressed and has a mid-hump.

    The Tim is the best I've heard for being open, but the OCD has been said for this too.

    The Menatone Red Snapper is very "open" and uncompressed.
