I am addressing this topic to anyone who could provide me with a possible explanation to what is happening with my music systems.
within less than 2 years, i have bought 12 ipod docking station and wireless speakers and they all encoutered the same problem!
I use my Iphone or ipod nano 7th to play or stream via bluetooth and airplay or even dock the iphone.
While playing my songs, with no obvious reason, and without any plausible explanation, the sound becomes Suddenly weak and the lower mids-upper bass becomes muffled and veryy deep, and struggles to show.
To save some time and unecessary questions/answers, i am answering the folowing:
-i never play music above 70% of the maximum volume of any device.
- 99% of my songs are of very good quality, most of which i have purchases on 7Digital for those who know it.
I am becoming very frustrated because no dealer nor retailer nor technical expert is able to know why is this happening.
To repeat myself, the speaker dock remains operational BUT the sound becomes different all of a sudden. you suddenly feel during playback of any song that the sound becomes all of a sudden veiled in the lower noted of the vocal like theres a gap between upper bass and lower mids!
I suspected the following issue because i am at a point where i am desperate and really can't enjoy music anymore:
-Electricity/power supply, although all other home equipment works fine.
-My iphone docking tooth or bluetooth data streaming.
-My entire music library
-I have tried playing through someone else's iphone or so, but once this problem occurs , the speaker becomes damaged and even if played with another ipod, the problem remains.
I really dont know why is this happening.
I am writing this because last night i played through my Geneva XS, songs that i have purchased on 7Digital, and on the 4th song or so, the sound suddenly changed character and became as i described it earlier.
I became really frustrated, because its the twelvth dock that becomes damaged. i have had the issue with b&w zeppelins and nad viso 1s and zeppelin minis.... 12 times guys! really. i am wasting my money and still can't figure out why all of this is happening.
i have shipped my zeppelin to Dubai to archimedia and they tried to fix it, changing the board and all, but the result is the same.
Please if someone has an explanation to what i am facing, kindly let me know.
(oh also, at my b&w retailer, they tried to dissassemble every speaker inside the zeppelin and found out that every speaker works just fine on its own)
Best regards ,
