Got my outlaw M200's yesterday and hooked up right away to power the fronts Rti70 & Rti38's
The first impression when i played music (2-channel) was WOW!!!. I could play loud at 0db on Denon 3803. I never played it that loud.
Then I recalibrated my system to listen to HT and I started noticing the harshness at nominal loud levels for both music( 2-channel) and HT.
I thought the stacking may be causing it because of two tweeters so I unhooked the rti38 and played on only Rti70 but the problem persists. In fact with only Rti70 running the sound seemed very shallow & thin. Maybe Iím used to the deeper and wider soundstage of stacked speakers.
I doubled checked the calibration with the AVIA disc and all the channel levels are 85db C weighted.
What could be the problem? Is due to other speakers running on 3803? But why the 2-channel is harsh as itís not using the receiver amplifier at all? Does anyone have their main speakers and other speakers driven by separate amps and noticed the difference in SQ. I know Dr. Spec has M200ís and has denon 3803.
I have Rti150 as my surround speaker as I did not have proper amplification before to drive them. Now I have M200ís do you guys think Rti 150 should be moved up as main speakers? Guys for heavenís sake I donít want to get into Rti70 vs. Rti150. I have read enough of that.
All Iím asking is where should I look for the problem and how to resolve it.
I want to thank all of you in advance for their valuable time and opinion. This forum has been great so far.
