Hi all, I'm a first time poster, thanks so much for reading!
I picked up a pair of RP-600m speakers a few weeks ago based on stellar reviews and a great performance at my audio dealer's audition room. However, I'm starting to sour on them, and before I do anything drastic, am looking to see what might help.
Here's the problem--for solo instruments (guitar, bass, drums) they're incredible, nearly jaw dropping in their realism and airiness. However, when a track gets complex, they fall apart and sound very flat. For example, vocals in a track like Steely Dan's "Deacon Blues" or Adele's "Skyfall" sound and tinny, while the drums are very in your face. To my ears, while they're great at presenting every detail of a track, they lack warmth and smoothness. After 15 minutes or so, I'm fatigued and just throw on my headphones.
I'm running them in a 15x20x9 room on 24" stands, with an Emotiva TA-100 integrated amplifier, and my audio source is Tidal via a Macbook Air. I've tried different toe in, placement, and still no luck.
Any ideas on what's causing this? Not enough power, or the quality of my electronics?
Thanks in advance!
