I got an SR-71B a few weeks ago & have been listening to it SE until a few days ago. I have never experienced the change between a SE & balanced set up personally but from all the reading I've done they always said it adds bass quantity & quality & texture etc plus the improved imaging.
Thing is, I'm not getting any bass coming through my SR-71B. Using my JH13s the sound is very thin & the bass has no impact whatsoever. The sound feels very lacking. I actually get more bass straight from my iPod (or any source) & bypassing the amp completely.
To me, the RSA house sound is thick & warm (I've had SR-71A, Hornet & Tomahawk) & doesn't sound like this. Even EQ'ing can't bring the impact back.
Do I just need to burn in the balanced out some more or do I have a problem?
