Just got the Loxjie A30 today compared to my Sony DN860 receiver the Loxjie A30 sounds horrible. The Sony receiver sounds very musically and really makes the speakers sing even on low volumes.

The Loxjie sounds horrible tinny and hollow sounding. Both the receiver and the Loxjie are running on direct mode through optical. Am I missing something?

Klipsch RB-62ii Kef Kube 2 subwoofer. If I can ot
Figure this out the Loxjie will have to go
back unfortunately

EDIT:

The sound has got incredibly better I can barley tell a difference now. Maybe the amp needed to warm up more as it was outside today in -30 I did let it warm up to room temperature, but maybe it needed more than that or possibly a few power cycles helped?

I'm kind of not surprised, the Loxjie A30 is a pretty low end product and your speakers would be revealing.

Brand new device = brand new condensors? They break in in a couple of hours.

I always let electronics warm up to room temperature after coming through shipping in winter. Just generally good practice, if nothing else, any condensation in a case has time to dissipate.

I'm gonna go with subzero temperatures also. If the interior hadn't reached room temperature, some of the components may well have been outside spec.
