I think I would like to ask him for the "enhanced" bass boost. What I find interesting is the option to address the bass in different ranges, so you can modify midbass independent of subbass, for example.

 

I don't know if there is a clear-cut definition of "basshead", despite of there being a lot of threads on the subject (try the search function, you'll be surprised). I think a "basshead" could listen to all kinds of music, theoretically, and just like them presented with emphasized bass. But in reality, you would probably find the most bassheads among listeners of Rap/HipHop and Electronic Dance Music with all of its diverse subgenres.

Thanks. Yeah, I'm definitely a guitar and drums head, when it comes to trad rock and roll. I also like EDM and electronica lot but I don't think deep or enhanced bass is inherently a prerequisite to liking it. But I wonder what Robert's trade-off is. I think that since it's the same price as the standard 5TX then the enhanced bass version must lack something the standard version has or he wouldn't offer a standard model. :beerchug:

Not necessarily, could just be a matter of him accommodating user's individual preferences. (Let's hope so.) :beerchug:

Both will have a bass boost just the standard will boost the bass not as intense.

Yeah, of course, how stupid I am. I just looked at my 4g: gain, bass, treble, cross. What is cross? :popcorn: 

post #3384 of 3386
Cross - all the way to the left bass boost pushes the sub bass. Middle the boost pushes the mid bass.

Cross - crossfeed circuit (off, low, high).

Found this definition in another thread--http://www.head-fi.org/t/233288/what-is-crossfeed#post_2865141

Crossfeed is when you hear the music in a less stereo and more mono way.
Some people think that headphones seperate the stereo too much so a crossfeed mechanism can make the stereo seperation less obvious and more nataural as if you are listening in front of speakers.

 

 Do you like it? Thanks.
