Hi Mr Harley.
I have some short Q for you regarding 2 equipments you've reviewed.
1. For Revel Salon2, did you use the supplied spikes ? which side of spike did you face downward ?
My room has a carpeted floor which Salon2 make smooth sound everywhere, but when I put on spikes with
the sharp side down sound seems to become too sharp everywhere, treble start annoying. I will try to
put the blunted side of spikes down instead to compare. Any suggestion ?
2. Did you put grills on for critical listening ? with or without grills produce more natural sound ?
3. When you reviewed Mark Levinson 326s, how did you set gain on its XLR input ? I tried +12 which music become
very lively, but i think there was more distortion clearly heard on treble, and clipping sometimes. +0dB seems to be smoothest
but lack puch and drive. +6dB is factory default, no clipping here, but treble not as smooth as +0dB. My CD output Voltage is quite strong
at about Balanced XLR 5.4V RMS (+14.6dBv) max.
The total possible settings regarding the above questions are of 18 combinations, which make me quite confused. Some setting
is fine for some CDs, but make very annoying treble (cymbal) on some CD.
Thank you very much
