what you said is prob true but like i said, i tried about 4 1/4 adapters not just the one that comes with it, and none of them made a difference.
and just the fact that this is priced around $350, i was expecting they could have designed it better.
but i guess i can live with that trick that i discovered and still get stereo out from it.
on the other hand.... this booted mid range is just killing me.
cannot use it without bringing those mids down.
