    I don't like putting anything between the monitors and the interface that could degrade the sound. I thought the tc level pilot was supposed to be fairly neutral. I can say i'm hearing a big improvement today, the spatial imaging i read about is now there. Instruments that sounded meh before now sound stunning! The difference is amazing. I was beginning to rue the decision to buy these monitors but yeah, i think they do live up to the hype. :D

    Sorry to hear that. Hope you didn't lose any important stuff. I've never had a machine fail but could happen and i've been a bit lax lately with backing up. What machine were you running? Did the hd survive?

    It was a really big difference, stuff just didn't sound 'right' on the monitors. I think i've resolved it anyway, it seems some settings on the dsp fx for my soundcard were effecting the mains output.

    The headphone on my k6 is really good, plenty of power to drive my hd280s, can't turn it up past 1/3rd. I even use it as an output sometimes!

    My computer died yesterday so now I can't listen to these monitors at all. But from memory, the mids might have been a little more noticeable with the phones.

    Monitor outputs = muffled mids, eh? Hmm. I'm now wondering about maybe a setting on mine, or if the nano patch is muddying it up. I did try it briefly and it was clear but really loud, so I don't know if it was only clearer because it was loud, or if the nano patch was muffling it. I do know my previous controller did change the sound.

    The headphone output I would think to be less quality than the intended monitor outs if it's a separate headphone amp?

    Hi, I noticed you have the CX5's, so I had a couple questions for you if you don't mind. I just got a pair of CX5s, having used BX5s (not BX5a) for 6 years.

    When they arrived, I first listened to something on the BX5s right before setting up the new CX5s. I expected the CX5s to sound better like reviews said, with that spacious sweet spot and all. They sounded OK, but the BX5s had an open presence and brightness the CX's didn't. They sound more mellow. Maybe the CX's show more truth than the BX5s, but they sound "veiled" in comparison.

    Going from halfway to full volume with the volume control is only a minimal change. BXs are louder, much louder.

    Did you had an adjustment period with these? Were yours sounding good right away? Did you break them in, or notice they got better over time? Where do you set the volume control?

    Thanks so much for any insight you can provide. I was told the CX's were much better than the LSR2325's I was considering. I would like that to be true!
