I hope I can get some input on this as I am genuinely interested in others opinions. I have just bought a pair of AKG Q701 and I have a Schiit Magni being delivered tomorrow. I have been listening to the AKG's on my ipod with rockbox installed and it sounds great (cant wait to hear it through the magni) but the problem I have is, I set all the eq to off and I listen to all my Cd's ripped to flac from dBpoweramp. Some songs sound great with just the right amount of bass and treble but some sound thin and weak? I know this is personal taste but I would like the signal path to be a clean as I can get it (as far as using eq)
I was wondering if I am doing something wrong or would adding some eq reduce the overall quality of the music. BTW, it seems my Rush Cd's are the worse for being bass light and kinda empty sounding.
