    When I re-capped my Parasound the burn in seemed rather dramatic. The sound started harsh and lacked dimension. Over the course of just a few hours, you could hear it smooth out and the sound stage...

    Yours must have had a problem. My 835R only has a slight imbalance down very low where no one would ever listen. I only noticed it with headphones.

    +1 for these receivers. I have had the littler sister, DRA-835R, for many years now and it is a very respectable receiver. Obviously, the DRA-1035 is a step up. The DRA-835R will drive my LSi-15's...

    I would say the first thing is a visual inspection of the exterior to see if there are signs of abuse (spills, busted knobs, busted connectors, etc.).

    The S10 are heavy in the bass. Of that series, the S8 is the sweet spot with the S6 a close 2nd. I find my S8's quite enjoyable and very easy on the ear. We all have our likes and dislikes but I...

    So I picked up the EPI's. They do sound pretty good on my initial first listen. I am guessing that the XO's could use the treatment. Otherwise they are in very nice condition. I'll post pics when...

    EPI M50 and Bose 501 Series II

    Some speakers seem to be more sensitive to positioning. The LSi series seems particularly sensitive. Beside adjusting the toe-in, also consider the front to rear tilt angle.

    You are correct. I should have added to keep it well ventilated (not installed in cabinet) until it is fully cured. This was not a problem with the car speakers as they were open baffle.
