    Maybe it was my post last page?
     
  2. HOWIE13
    LOL. Yes, could have been! 
    So there is no point someone buying a V3 to mod off the equaliser-may as well just buy the V1.
     
  3. Didhefocus
    In my opinion...yes, but in my case, I'm keeping it since I would have to spend more to replace it. I don't like the hassle of returns either!
     
  4. HOWIE13
    I was so pleased with the V3 I bought another one as a spare as I wasn't expecting it to last more than a few weeks.  I use them alternately every other day so hope to get twice the life out of them!
     
  5. Didhefocus
    We seem to have a different opinion of the V3! Are yours un-modded?
     
  6. HOWIE13
    Yes- unmodded. Listen mainly to Classical and Jazz, through CD's or FLAC files through a Sansa ClipZIP.
     
  7. Didhefocus
    In case anyone's interested, I started another thread focusing on just the V3.

    Great photos. Thanks for the new thread differentiating the various Bravos-much needed!
    Could you say a little about how the sound has changed with the equaliser exclusion mod compared to leaving the equaliser in the circuit with the levers in the 'up' position ie off?
    For Classical I like the detailed, analytical sound of the V3, albeit with less bass. Does the mod warm up the sound or reduce treble clarity?
     
  9. Didhefocus
    I find that the EQ bypassed adds midrange warmth, bass response and impact. Treble clarity is slightly improved also but the difference isn't as obvious. It's also much louder. Shouldn't we be using the new thread? Bravo Audio V3

    Thanks, I posted on the new thread as well, when I realised I had mistakenly posted on this one-still trying to get used to the website!

    Guys can you recommend or share your eq setting on your v3? Used mainly for rocks. May can is grado sr325is. Thanks
     
  12. money4me247 Contributor
     Don't have any EQ settings on the V3 activated. I would imagine for rock you would want to just boost the mids.
     
    it may be better to use software EQ for more control.

    From what I've heard the EQ on the V3 is not very good, basically you want to set all 3 bands to high to turn it off. Then as the person above said, use software EQ. It's much better.

    In the process of replacing the caps (for other cheapo ones) to see if it gets rid of the crackling problem I had. Also will redo the solder joints as there might be some cold joints.
