I love my new Monitor 60s but after a few days of listening to them my ears have been ringing. The highs seem excessively harsh and are sometimes painful at reference levels.
I only posted this under "Electronics" because I believe the issue is with Audyssey and not the M60s. I'm using a Denon AVR1611.
I didn't have this issue with my R50s but in my research I may have stumbled onto something. When I ran Audyssey with my old R50s the tweeters were sitting higher up on the speaker, more in-line with the calibration mic. On the M60s the tweeters are lower than mic level when running Audyssey. Is it possible that Audyssey is boosting or overcompensating the highs too much because the tweeter isn't in-line with the mic? It was noted by a poster on another audio site that a solution to his similar issue was to place the calibration mic on the same plane as the tweeter in his speakers when running Audyssey. The mic picks up more high frequency and adjusts the curve down accordingly. This resulted in more laid back, smoother highs from his speakers.
Has anyone had experience with this issue? Is it possible that the M60s are really just that forward in the highs? My tinnitus thanks you in advance.
