I have been unhappy with my BX2 sound across the AS500. Thankfully I have the ideck 200 with arcam rPac in my room.
The BX 2 simply is not delivering the depth of low frequency much less the sound stage is not expansive. Instrument gets muddle together. The mid and High are on the bright side going on harshness which often gives me ear fatigue. I don t seems to hear any much bass notes. Just imagine my ideck 200 has a more detail and deep bass note. (what a shame)
I like to think the AS500 is the weak link; but it contradict with WHF which quoted that AS500 when "Used with well-behaved speakers and electronics – Monitor Audio's BX2s and Marantz's CD6003 CD player, say – the A-S500 shines." im a bit confused now.
I have lost the joy of listening music in my lounge . i am so disappointed with the sound. My sound preference are: detail , warmish with expansive soundstage with proportionate articulate midrage and sparkly highs.
I am hoping that someone out there will point me in the right direction to resolve this issue.
Any suggestion are most welcome..
