Spatial X5 speakers
Congrats jaymark, enjoy.    I had a pair of Emerald Physics 2.3 in the system for a short time.  Took a while to get them dialed in.  They did a lot of things right but just didn't like the tweeter/mid setup.  No matter what I did it was always a...

Wilco - (the album)Frustratingly bad sounding right out of the sleeve.  Brand new perfect condition vinyl that sounds thin, harsh, and sibilant.  Definitely worse than the CD.  No life or "musicality",  Maybe a good scrubbing will help?  WTF!  And...
