Thanks Cno. I just tried with EQ on iTunes and yes it felt lifeless as I am only intending a very minute change and the EQ is cutting down so muchCnoEvil said:FWIW I have always found that Graphic Equalizers degrade the sound, and that toning down the treble somehow didn't quite achieve making a bright recording better..it just took the life out of it, which wasn't an improvement, to be honest.
IMO. If you get the right balance, one isn't needed. As I said previously, the R700 manages to pull off the neat trick of being incredibly detailed and insightful, while still remaining musical. I think having owned the Inpol, you are sensitive to brightness.
R700 is what interests me in the entire R series and they have a beautiful Rosewood color :cheer:
Though I will be auditioning the speakers, Do you think the R700 is smooth and warm but not bright? (as I was reading on a forum that R700 tweeter makes metallic treble and not as balanced as R300, which I doubt but it looks like this person did a home demo of R300, R500 and R700)
