Re: More on headphones

PS What this amounts to is that most people are not serious about these things. They do not really care if things sound or look right or not. They are too

Re: Stirling LS3/6 Set Up

I see what you mean about not having to have so much bass come from the Stirlings even without high-pass filtering them. I'd just turn up the Swarm amps a bit
