This thread may be placed in wrong forum, but bear with me a while, redirect if totally out of place. During passed weekend i caught a cold, a real massive one. So comming home from work today i found it appropiate to console myself with some good music, started with Merle Haggard "serving 190 proof" and yes i had treated myself to a small Laphroig to go with Merle. This record sounds really good, well balanced with a tremendeous lf extension. Problem was; no bass extremely shrieky and offensive hf, changing records and playing what i know sounds good and have good lf i realise everything sounds crap. I still feel the bass thou, just as usual, just don´t hear it. So i´ve got a cold, a real shitty one, my entire head, normaly empty, is filled with phlegm and snot, so the resonance cavity is out of work, hence the lack of bass? Ok i can understand that, but as my entire head is filled with this snot-stuff ( i think related to the deadly yellow snow crystals) to the level where i feel my eardrums bulging outwards, shouldnt hf being the first to suffer? So is there anyonehere that can explain this medically/physically. Ponder on this while i go refill or maybe open the penultimate bottle of Port ellen.
