It allows you to lower distortion, overall, or manipulate the nature of it. In my case, I chose not to go for lowest distortion, but instead have slightly higher second over third.

I think he is inquiring about (and if not I will) about how this is done, concerning use of a sound card and so forth. what equipment can the average guy need to accomplish this, without going broke!

Thanks for any clarity, Ive sort of taken the position I would just leave it at the middle range, not having a O-scope and so forth.

Get a good balanced PC soundcard, like MAudio 192 or Xonar Essence. Xonar has more updated drivers, but both perform great. then Arta or Audiovisual analyzer

Thank you, my dear friend, for do not forgetting to remind me how your amp humiliated my :-).

If seriously, it is hard to explain, but:
Sound was sort of bigger a bit less analytical, but much sweeter :-) I know, these words are not for technical DIY forum, but it is all I have :-).

BTW, Buzz, I almost forget how it sounded ;-)

Less analytical and sweeter is a clear answer I guess. How was your procedure? Listen to on speaker while adjusting P3, measuring it's value and adjusting the other channel to the same value so you get both channels the same?
