Comments Needed on Newly Setup System
Hi guys, i am relatively inexperienced in Hi Fi connections and system matching but i have assembled the following components during the last 6 months or so:
Cambridge Audio 840A, 640C, Spendor S3/5, Supra interconnect and speaker cables, after market chinese power cords for both. i have always liked BBC'esque sound so that was my first purchase.
i listened to mainly vocal based pop or jazz and i don't play my music loud but just enough to be able to hear the details of course! i have been running in these equipment for the past 6 months and have been scratching my head over some shortcomings:
it seems that my 840A's volume have to be switched to quite high level (ie between -28 to -32 db if you are familiar with 840's volume).
the bass seemed to be non existent or at least not as well defined as heard in showrooms.
i will be grateful if somebody can give some frank opinions on this setup or any ways to tweak and better the system.
