I’m new to the forum and am looking forward to joining in with all your conversations!
In my first post, I was hoping that some of you might be able to help me out with some advice…
For about the last 12 months I’ve been using a Superuniti with PMC GB1i’s, a Michell Gyrodec, Rothwell Rialto phono stage and a Rega Apollo CD player. I use a
Powerline lite (I still can’t get my head around how it makes such a huge improvement) and the Superuniti is plugged straight into a router with some fancy network cable.
My listening room is fairly small which is why I opted for the GB1i’s and the superuniti but in general I’m really happy with my setup.
Records and Cd’s sound absolutely fantastic but Tidal (the hi-res subscription) sounds like it’s lacking in bass. Some music through Tidal sounds great such as newer pop music and I love the detail that I can hear but in for most music, the lack of the lower frequencies seem to leave things flat with less depth and a smaller soundstage.
I know some people feel that the GB1i’s are a bit lean when it comes to bass but I know for fact that when I play records, CD or play music through my Amazon fire TV that they’re more than capable of producing some really really good lows.
New speakers would be the obvious next move but I’m struggling for space and I’ll probably miss the detail and clarity I get from the GB1i’s. Another option would be to get a small subwoofer but I see myself having to adjust the bass on it depending on what source I used.
Anyone else experienced anything like this before and how did you get around it?
