Re: Stereo 200 turning off at volume, more power? x300 sig?

it might be useful to know which pre you are using?
where on the dial is your pre 11oclock, 1 o'clock ?
i suspect your speakers could do with a better amp, but i'm also suspecting you might have the same problem.

Some large speakers at previous wam shows have sounded really open on lightweight stands. in heavy stands different ballast can make speakers sound different, so opportunity for tuning to room....

Re: Alternatives to cadence on Apple?

i have got mconnect, and intend to do back to back sound tests from my NAs.
