Yeah, that's the beauty of it. Having measurements available and tweeking the sound to one's liking.
In that case, HD 600 is the headphone for you. It still needs some tweeking: Diffuse EQ and Harman or variation for music/movies - great stuff!
Can't say for 7506, but with HD600 or HD800s and...
Now that you have power to spare, try EQing your headphones first. Google Oratory's measurement for 7506 and if you are using PC, try EQ Apo. There are lots of tutorials here on the forum.
Also compare HD 600 frequency response. It's a great headphone, but bass light and a bit narrow...
I think it is frequency/room modes related.
Not much you can do if you want to keep MQA..Things like Minidsp won't let you pass MQA, and would be another preamp/dac in your case.
Although DSP, crossovers, subwoofer and room correction software benefits far outweigh MQA IMO, but it is what it...
Thank you @amirm for another informative video!
Thing I don't understand, please if you could elaborate a bit more.
18:56 Speaker can potentially distort, because it takes more power to reach the same SPL part?
But in both distortion graphs it's better (if we exclude resonance @ 96dB).
I didn't do separate speaker correction - basically Dirac does that for you depending on house curve you load.
Crossover and sub time aligment was done to a clean (noEQ signal and no room correction) in REW and ran dirac after.
But you can do EQ before dirac, not sure what would be the benefit...
This kind of defeats the purpose of flex, IMO. You want to send high passed freq to both amps (if bi-amping) and low freq to sub.
If anything, splitter should be on the flex outputs 1 and 2 that goes to amps and to the main speakes - I don't know if this will work.
No, speaker passive xover...
Think those specific amp and speakers haven't been tested here, so we have no way to know.
But in general if amp doesn't have any glaring issues (noise/distortion) and has enough power to drive speakers, you should be ok with MA silver 2 or Kefs.
Personally, I wouldn't change speakers but...
Welcome to ASR.
As @tvrgeek said, adding sub and setting up x-overs isn't trivial.
AFAIK the simplest way to get HP/LP is to go with:
Parasound preamp ($$$)
or a sub that can high pass signal to mains (some KEF subs have that option $$$)
or miniDSP 2x4 HD ($), Flex ($$), SHD ($$$) ...it's a...
No such issues on my old HD600.
You'll want to check if distortion occurs when connected to another source.
Also, check if the drivers are fitted properly in the driver slots. I've had this happen, one of the drivers needed to be pushed into the latches holding driver in place.
Yeah, not sure about 110Hz cross.
But I decided on it based on two things.
- KEFs are not on stands, but on a hollow TV cabinet (cca 20cm from the wall) - wanted to avoid resonances by sending lows to sub.
- Rotel RA 12 is only 60W so it seem to me better to offload it somewhat, because it...
