I had Triton 2s but in my room the midrange had that cupped hands sound. The sub section only had level control too. 
I want to be moved and have the music touch my soul!
Well I found my answer. A pair of Revel Gem speakers, DIY subs and a minidsp SHD with Dirac room correction. The music puts me in a trance now. Amazing difference. I think the SHD cam make i big difference in any system. 
Tekton Design Electron SE
I ended up selling the Electrons and now the guy that bought them has a buzzing woofer. Oh boy. 
Anyone tried the new miniDSP SHD as a Pre amp??????
I bought one and it's awesome! It takes some work to learn it but it's worth it. It has replaced my Ayre Kx5 MP for now. This thing does things no regular pre could ever do. If you have subs you will love it. Sold my JL crossover. This thing is an...
