Why is it when someone doesn't like the sound of the 580/600's it has to be something else causing the problem. Can't people just accept that they are not for everyone?
I mean come on, Lou has had his for awhile now and tried different things with them but ultimately found they weren't for him. I can relate, I found Lou's description of his displeasure quite accurate with my own.
Originally I got the impression a Cmoy would be a fine combination (which I think it is) but as soon as I voiced my concerns with the 580's people said I needed a better amp, upgrade the cables, etc. One of the amps that was suggested was a Meta42 which now is the possible culprit for Lou not liking his???
For what it's worth I think the 580's do some things really well and if I had the means I would have kept them myself and got something else to go along with them and try some upgrades but my financial situation doesn't allow for that. I don't deny the fact that all these upgrades will probably make the 580's sound even better, but ultimately at what cost? And as for myself, an educated guess tells me I don't think they would "do" it for me even then.
I think people have to realize that maybe the 580/600's aren't for everyone and stop trying to make excuses for them.
Just my two cents worth, and we all know I'm Canadian so my two cents ain't worth jack ****!
