Do all high end amps loose the 'fun' sound in the bass/lower mids?
I miss the 'fun' sound that i got from my old entry level hifi ie. listening to punk/rock/hardcore/hip hop/electronic/Prodigy etc generally energetic music and don't have that sound that makes you want to dance along to it.. I've heard that this is because cheaper amps have a boost in the lower mids and high end amps are flat and accurate to the source.
Or is it that typical high end buyers listen too Classical/jazz etc so taylored to a 'natural' sound and cut/soften certain frequncies so it sounds more airy? It doesn't seem to matter what amp/speaker combo's i try the lower mids don't make me want to drum along etc.. I tried my setup with a sub and It just made it sound muddy.. It was only a tiny rel in a big room so maybe i should try a bigger amp..
Any help/advise would be great... Starting to do my head in as only music recorded perfectly to suit the amp sounds good.. I'd love to hear a FM Acoustics Linearizer as i think this would solve all my problems as you can boost/dip certain frequencies without affecting the signal with zero feedback/distortion.. Buty i think they're silly money and haven't e-mailed me back..
Any thoughts welcome.. GO!
