How's This: A gainclone relates to a MyRef, as a go-cart relates to a sedan. They both have a gas engine and four wheels, but.... ????

Hi All,
I have been running my FE for atleast 5 hours a day. It sounds so so good. I have only 2 amps I heard so far and I posses. One is my Onkyo 5008 receiver and MyRef. My setup is Marantz CD53(Modded) -> MyRef -> Monitor Audio. I like it very very much. I have a question, so far MyRef has around 50+ hours burn in time. Can I expect more improvement in sound wise after some hours of component burn in? I am rising this question because the lower frequency which I able to hear from Onkyo 5008 setup, not able hear in MyRef setup. Please clarify me.

Thanks
Badri

Are you sure the Onkyo is feeding straight through or is it boosting the bass? Obviously no tone controls on the MyRef.

Yes, a very valid question !
Is it a bass boost problem, or a bass cut problem?

Bass boost can also be brought about by adjusting the damping factor seen by the speaker.
A higher source impedance tends towards increasing the output around a narrow band of frequencies.

Yes, the same bass boost as engineered into the Onkyo/speaker could be obtained by adding a 100milliohm resistor into the output lead of the MyRef/speaker combination.

It may not simply be an amplifier frequency response issue !

I will have to play around with some 25W/25R pots I have and put them in series with my speakers. Fun!

A length of nichrome wire recycled from that infra red heater you were about to throw away. Slide the "tap" along the wire to adjust the added source resistance.

Yet more unhelpful posts?

Bradi, Did you use the Mundorf AG caps? They have a significant impact on bass response.

I have used the full band width option for front speaker in onkyo speaker configuration and kept it in stereo mode and used the audyssey setup configuration. But the sound which i heard may not be boosted, it may be captured or produced in that way in the source.

Since you're using Black Gates, yes.

They change until 500 hours...

this could be the problem, the audissey EQ do equalize....and should optimize frequency response in room.

Yes I have Mundorf Mlytic caps. And no doubt sound is superb and bass is excellent. I used to have a long listening session. With MyRef I didn't feel tired, no fatigue which I had from Onkyo. This is a particular scenario, the bass which i heard from onkyo in a particular track that I didnt hear from MyRef.
