I recently got into vinyl listening. I had a pair of KLH model 16 2-way speakers laying around and a Superscope PAC 770 amplifier that I used to use solely for guitar study but haven't used for years. Over Christmas I got the AudioTechnica LP60 turntable and hooked all those units up together. I have to admit records sounded awesome!
Last week I got a Polk PSW 10 subwoofer and of course it improved the listening experience a zillion percent!
Sometimes however I'd like to hear
a little more "richness" from the mid ranges and highs and was wondering
if anyone could weigh in on the subject.
My satellites are 100w a 6 1/2 inch
speakers and a 1 inch tweeter.
My amplifier has 3 simple bass, mid and treble knobs.
I have my PSW10 set with Low Pass all the way to the right, volume fairly high above 12:00, and the phase switch set in the up position.
The triad of speakers and woofer are
in front, on the longer side of a 16 1/2 x 16 inch room with the speakers appx ear level and toed in and appx 14 ft apart and a foot from the front wall. The sub is set appx 10 ft from the left speaker and about 4 feet from the right and actually peaking out from under a long desk and on a 1-inch high guitar amplifier sound absorption platform (to not annoy my neighbors).
I tried the sub in a couple of places and liked it in all if them but chose this spot for it out of convenience. Thought it made the mids sound fuller as well.
The music I listen is mostly Indie rock and folk: Pixies, Grizzly Bear, Wilco,
