Re: Roksan Kandy 2 AMP 'To Bright'

I had some Monitor Audios BR5's before with my onkyo amp.  They sounded sweet

Re: Roksan Kandy 2 AMP 'To Bright'

I demo'd the K2 with my quad 12l and didnt find it bright at all very controlled sweet treble. How mant hours have you run the amp for? My CA 840 was a bit splashy for the first week or two but has settled down beautifully

Ok. So it's the sound of the system you are not happy with, not the Roksan.

The Mezzo's are certainly more revealing than the Monitor's. Your cables are on the bright side as well.

System matching is critical.

Why don't amps have graphic equalizers these days, and what wires are not bright?  Can wires make that much difference?

amps don's have graphic equalizers today so that you buy more stuff.I've come to that conclusion a few days ago.

I appreciate every one who has answered, but I tell you it really sucks having a 'Bright' system. 

Especially when I studied up long and hard about which amp to get.  Can it really be as simple as the speaker cable??

I'm a bit late coming in on this but the Kandy I heard with RS6s was harsh and aggressive with rock music, and didn't suit me at all, but as other people have said give it time and it may smooth out a bit and you may get used to it.
Otherwise save up for a Caspian.

It also depends on the sort of music you listen to. Anything harder than Queen or The Stereophonics doesn't really suit my system, but then that's not what I like anyway. Dance sounds superb, vocalists sublime, chillout-style excellent, but not The Stone Roses.
