Anti Sibilance portable amp?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello

I have just recently recabled my Denon D2000

I noticed there are more sibilances even after 30-40 hours of burn-in

 

Is there any portable amp that can reduce sibilances? Especially on female vocal?

 

Sorry for my bad english.. thx.

Thats a good question. Would like to know that myself, but a desktop amp preferably! Thanks!

is it there on the recording? or do you think your present amp is adding it?

 

if the first, live with it. The only way to cut it out is to cut the treble, that could kill the music

 

or if the second, then Graham Slee? or something with an EQ. E17?E10?

Most of my albums are 320kbps mp3, few are flacs

Just now I asked my friends to listen to some songs with my denon, surprisingly they found no sibilances

I think there's something wrong with my ears... oh well..

most likely in the music files IME

try using another headphone or borrow another headphone and listen to the same song. dont borrow bass-heavy headphones as you might not hear the sibilance at all hehe..

 

btw, what amp are you using?

Well the amp is NFB-16. I wouldnt say it emphasize sibilance. More likely it doesnt sugar coat it like the E11 which is not as neutral. About the bass heavy phones... Well Pro 900 is a bass monster and a sibilance monster as well. So it depends on the phones themselves.
