any tuning tips? can't seem to get something that sounds good (or decent)
I used one of the articles I read as the baseline and then tweaked form there.
I also tried lots of other settings, takes time, but finally got to where I like it best.
I had a relative come visit and had her listen to the default versus my settings and she liked my setting best.
Didn't tell what I was doing just switched it to default and she said, "Eww, what did you do, it sounds bad now, what did you do? whatever you did put it back."
I switched it back and she said, "Oh yeah, now that's better, I like that a lot beter, don't do that again". It was my mom so obviously I didn't "do that again"...
Before I post my setting I want to say this, I know someone will say "those settings are whacked, you messed it all up" but, before any of you post it, I really only care that they sound good to me like this and that is enough.
So here are my settings FWIW and YMMV and all that. Your room may be a lot different than mine.
Mine are on stands next to my entertainment center about a foot from the wall. angled into the room 12 foot wide, 23 into open kitchen, 7.5 foot ceiling
Room is very lively (sliding glass door, carpet, lots of furniture)
On the expert tab:
Desk mode: off
Wall mode: on at -5dB
Treble trim: -2dB
Phase correction: on
Bass extension: Standard
High pass frequency: off
Sub out low-pass frequency: 120Hz
Sub Gain: 5dB
Sub Polarity: +
I do tweak it every so often just for kicks. but these setting are there most of the time. I also tune it at times for high Neighbor acceptance factor due to living in an apartment (meaning lower volumes and lower bass rumble).
thanks so much! I'll go back and try these settings out. heh.
really just have to fix my left/right speaker imbalance for now.
anyone using a separate DAC with these speakers?
bought them in Singapore... the price is insane and there's no freebies to go along (i.e. isotek power cables, etc. :/)
As far as I know every signal goes to the internal DAC, no way to bypass it.
I'm using my Mimby with them and it sounds like the details are better resolved with the Mimby (not sure if it's placebo).
What I'm bothered with is the vocals being weighted on the right :/
You can still do the blind test to know for sure.
Ha, LS50 thread on HF, that's a good one. I've had this product for nearly two years and I had a blast with it. Very good speakers for the price, but their owners here probably know that already
any suggestions for good tracks to test them?
hmm anyone tried replacing the Cat6 cable with something of higher quality?
I'm using a Belden DataTuff Industrial Ethernet CAT6 patch cord. It features their proven bonded-pair technology and industrial connectors like those used in the Audioquest Diamond cable.
got a link to those cables?
anyone changed the power cables and/or use a power filter with them?
I rolled my own power cables for them using some Carol Brand 12awg-3c SOOW cable, Wattgate evo connectors, and TechFlex.
oh you rolled your own Ethernet cables as well? wonder if I can get Ghentaudio to do so as well.
was thinking of getting Isotek power cables
Nope, just the power cables. The ethernet cables linked to are sold as patch-cords.
any discernible sound difference with the new power cables?
Honestly - no. But they were a better length and look a heck of a lot nicer!
