OK, you can tell me how to get lost detail back.

I think I have some balanced nuetriks around here somewhere and some 16 gauge. Would these measurable differences show up at line level?

What I will try to do as soon as I return from a trip is to measure at the speaker output just to see if what I hear from the speakers can really be measured.If it does then it could be a good point to start........thinking.If you are trying them,make sure that both channels have their wires pointing at the same direction.Measure at both line level and speaker output.

Do you mean XLR's? How are you going to reverse direction with XLR's?

Nah 1/4" TRS or TS somewhere in this mess. I might have RCA as well somewhere. Don't have much in the way of cable although I have some oddball stuff like telephone and I think coaxial - don't ask me half of the junk in this garage was collected by a former occupant.

You're right, I just spent the last two hours trying to vacuum up all the details off my floor. They'd been accumulating there for a while un-noticed, then my gf pointed them out to me. "What have you been doing in here??? Look at all those details on the floor! This place is a pigsty, clean them up!"

I dumped the vacuum cleaner bag into a box, and I'm thinking of selling them on EBay.

be shure to use one of the new filterbags, or the microdetails will remain on the floor
