Awesome!

I was sad that my Akai turned out to be "Studio Monitors"...then I realized...I have studio monitors:D If I wanna listen to Tchiakovsky and pick out the string section I can. I probably won't for a while but it's nice to know I can when I want too. Having just one can serve all purposes is the definition of compromise.

I completely agree with you.

Anybody knows, what bass frequencies boosts the E12?
I hate the bass boosting on E11 and digizoid is practically nowhere to get from. My basshead heart is craving for more bass (clean and strong, without bleeding into other frequencies).

I have a feeling it's pretty low (sub-bass)

I really wanted a ZO some time ago but I couldn't find any, even used. Still, the ZO3 is coming out soon so I might save up for that.

I could not live without it. It has been perfectly placed. Elevates earlier than audible and hits 20Hz at about +13db

It still depends what type of music and what preferences you have, there's no "universally perfect" working config. 

If the bass beats are configured to raise from say 40Hz, peak at 60Hz and fall off around 80Hz or so for example. Then if you have a bass boost that say starts raising at 20Hz already, peaks maybe around 40Hz and rolls off already at 60Hz then that bass beat will be colored and deeper sounding and possibly more "cloudy" or untextured than it should be according to the perfectly engineered beat by the producer's point of view. 

Then people have their own taste, some like deep rumbly bass, some like punchy impactful bass etc. For the manufacturers of bass boosting amps it's more about finding what works great for the greatest amount people though.

I was answering the question. He wanted to know the slope on the e12.

 

Rumbling and impactful bass are not mutually exclusive. I'd pick impact over rumble which happens +50Hz but I don't have to choose one or the other. I have both using a Cowon + e12

 

Folks with an ipod? My ipod classic is wretched compared to my Cowon.

 

 Cowon...designed by terrorists..endorsed by audiophiles. What a trippy company.

Thanks Hawaiibadboy. I also always prefered to boost the bass at 50hz. Although it still seems to crawl a bit into the mids (at least that's what I see in the chart). Anyway, need to check it out somewhere. That said, I'm really interested in the ZO3.

IPod classic is great with Rockbox! Fantastic parametric EQ.

Is this that?

 

50Hz looks like the lowest slider. Any running lower?

If a ZO3 ever shows it's face Ima grab one. Just to keep my bass cred ;)

 

You got the s9....do you use Mach3bass I use +8 on that. The iAudio10 put me through the rings of hell to figure it out but now I'm hooked on the sound.

The S9 is now used by my girlfriend - I never quite liked the Cowon house sound.

You've got enough bass-cred for at least one lifetime bro!

Each slider can be adjusted to any frequency - you could have all five EQ sliders under 200Hz, if you wanted. 

 

You set the Centre frequency, adjust the Q, then boost/cut to your hearts desire!
