    That is a very nice setup and room. I agree with Mikado463 about the speakers being more into the room, most systems I have heard sound better (to me) this way. Also, depending on how the bass sounds (if it sounds right, leave it the hell alone) he...

    Just so I understand. In order to improve the sound of Roon, you install and configure HQP on another computer. Then, in HQP, you set it to upsample everything, even PCM red book to DSD 256/512 using a ASDM7EC modulator with a poly-sinc-ext2...

    There are numerous You Tube videos showing folks listening to Pink Floyd and other classic bands for the first time. Their comments after listening are sometimes very humorous. If I was smarter I would post one or two of them, oh well.

    This amp goes deeper and stronger in the bass than the F6 which was creating some muddiness on certain CD's. I wound up putting points under my preamp to get it off of the factory feet, this helped quite a bit. Then I wound up pulling the speakers...
