Before spending more money, could you look at speaker positioning (further out) and room acoustics (deaden with rugs etc)? Just a thought.danrv said:Have spent some time listening to the Equators and there's certainly an improvement over the QED Qunex 1. Included in the improvement is more bass which I think now is a little too much. Considering swapping them for a cable which has the detail of the Equators but not the bass weight. I've read that the Chord CrimsonPlus is a tad bass light so may swap for those.
