Review: Fischer Audio FA-003 - a neutral champ! - Page 195

post #2911 of 2992

FA-003, HM5, Lindy Premium HF-100, Jaycar Pro Monitors

 

Probably a few others as well.

Ah, the NVX audio XPT100.

Mind you, there were a few minor differences between my FA-003 and my Jaycar monitors. 

 

For a start, the drivers had different numbering:

 

 

 

 

And the Female headphone socket was coloured (Blue for left, red for right) on the FA-003, where as the Jaycar ones were just black (As far as I can remember).

 

I have the night off tonight, I might be a little keen to get stuck into modding these again..

 

I think they are in need of a recable.

 

Shameless re-post of my FA-003:

It seems to fix some resonance issues, and increase the mid-bass and sub-bass by a few db..

 

But I haven't measured it, so it's all subjective. I just love the way they look.

Opened up treble and upper mids. But increase in sibilance which can be remedied via dynamat.

Hmm.. Interesting.

 

I'm looking for ways to increase bass response, but I don't think it will happen without just EQ - the drivers just might not be big enough, and the processing chips might not be tuned for it.

 

But thanks for the tip!

If you want more bass just buy a M50 or Q40. 

 

There is no processing chip inside these, the pcb is acts as a wire terminal from the driver to the jacks.

 

Btw my 003's are rated at 550ohms :wink:

That's actually pretty, yep resistors soldered in line for both channels signals (not including ground). 499+61 ohms.

I'll make you one, then we can do each others hair, and talk about periods and boys? (LOL)

Seriously though - much tonal difference?

We'll talk about those things only if you braid my hair thanks.

 

...........

 

 

Hard to tell atm, I've sold my dynamic and Stax setup so all I have is a B22 in pieces, Darkvoice 336SE waiting for Mundorf output caps and an E11 portable amp. The E11 clips at about 2/3's of the way on high gain, equalizer to 1 so it's really hard to gauge differences, my desktop output is barely audible due to the increased Z, as for the sound, bass seems more controlled, goes slightly down deeper (due to the higher dampening factor).
