Lately I've wanted a decent pair of speakers to hook up to my TV. I read some awesome things about the Dayton Audio B652 + Lepai 2020A+ combo so I decided to place an order.
Hooked it up today and I was initially pretty disappointed. Things just sounded a little...off. At first I got nervous thinking that maybe after these past 5 or so years of using pretty high end headphones (HD600 etc.) that maybe I had just gotten pretty spoiled.
After listening some more though I decided that there was no way this was right. I paid some closer attention and realized that one speaker in particular was being a trouble maker. So I found a few songs that seemed to make the problem stand out and recorded it with my phone.
Here are 3 clips:
Do you see what I mean? It just sounds strained or something. This happens regardless of volume level or bass settings.
I'm not imagining things - this is actually busted, right? Should I ask for it to be exchanged? Has anyone experienced this before? I hope they don't have a high failure rate.. :\
