Hi. I too would have to read the entire thread to pull out my posts.

But I don't know, I think it would be interesting. Based on how they measure I don't see how they could have anything but a similarity in presentation. Once you got down to the nitty gritty seems like the comparison would fall apart.

 

It never fell apart for me.  There were differences, obviously, but the overall balance and sound quality were amazingly similar.  After much agony here about 40 pages back, I was able to get just 2 users to suggest tests, and both of those were high freq. comparisons.  So far on all the forums I've visited, there hasn't been a single challenge as to low freq. differences.  If I get that suggestion from someone else, then it's not just my bias.

I have the receipts on those items and who I sent them to.  No need for me to exaggerate on something like that.  I spent $250,000 on HP computer gear for myself in the 1980's, so today's electronic purchases are a bargain compared to then.

Oh boy, here we go again. The teasing and fighting begins again.

I'm on oldshoe99's side, he seems like an interesting guy and wants to share the gift of good sound with people.

Inside the DSP  chain of foobar I have two DSP active:

In order to enable  sheppi inside foobar , you must use the free foo_vst component (or vst adapter). Sheppi is a free vst, search with google.

Here's how I've configured sheppi:

Please notice that I've enabled the sheppi EQ, and that I'm limiting the ambiance effect below 1000 hz. This way, I  increase the perceived bass presence, and soundstage.

I  avoid applying  the ambiance effect for the highs (-12 db for the high band).

 

Now regarding treble, ideally I  would decrease  it at 9k, but only a 10k slider is available with the built in foobar equalizer.

I'm sure there would be a lot less complains with this.


Wow...I'll have to try this out. While the SRH 940 is a clear sounding can that handles songs like 'Someone Like You' by Adele wonderfully, ever since my Audio Technica M50 arrived at my house, the SRH 940 have been getting alot less use lately. Mainly because of what I perceive to be too light bass and slightly unnatural sound. Perhaps this will rectify that.

 

And also I would suggest you use the Graphic Equalizer plugin instead of the built-in one. It uses master gain, minimum phase and approximation of smooth frequency response in order to prevent any distortion and clipping. It doesnt have the 9k band you want but I think it comes close:

The "graphic equaliser" is here btw -> http://www.foobar2000.org/getcomponent/6da57bac80d4273ca7ba41ad18178f02/1e56b24faa64f4d31e01f9bb32cc986a/foo_dsp_xgeq.zip

Yeah, this equalizer seems to work better. I  would then decrease both slider 8k and 10k to the max, then:

Anyway what I've suggested , is the most easy & free solution I  could find.

If I  got to only eq, one area, it's the peak around 9k, it's the most annoying part.

And regarding the bass, I  noticed that using sheppi with particular settings can help to restore the perception of it, although it's subtle; with some musics with "line of bass" it can do wonders
(example track angel, from massive attack).

What if your like me and live 5 hours drive from the nearest high end audio shop? Nothing can be done about that you have to order one and hope you got a good one.
 

 

post #2067 of 3844

I would actually drive 5 hours to do that LOL thats just me though. In my case, I have to buy blind because the closest place to audition high end amps is to buy an international plane ticket hehehe

Be glad that there is even one that you can drive to instead of having to get out of the country.

Hi there, I got the graphic equalizer but can't get it to work. Can you help me out... >.< It looks to be a great tool!

Thanks

5 hours of driving is a lot of money. Gas is expensive and i generally take the bus. I don't have a car.
