    Just noticed something about my SR325 (silver)

    I noticed that when I listen at low volumes they sound quite muddy, but if I turn up the volume to about 8-9 o'clock on the ra-1 clone and the dac-1, theyre suddenly very clear and detailled. Could someone else who owns these try it out and confirm? Thanks
