In the end a few words. I do tend to listen music significantly
loader then he does. It has to do with perhaps personal preferences, habits, type
of the music we listen, personal sensitivity. I have no problem with that and
this is why I give to visitors a remote control. Set whatever volume you want. The
harshness Josh reported is very much there and
very much deliberate. In my view it is not a harshness, Josh just did not understand
it, but it is +1.5dB forwardness of S2 driver. It gives some edge to Bruckner recordings and
to some other music.
Romy, this caught my attention. In my experience, I tend to prefer a "harsher/sharper" system when listening to classical tunes, particularly on strings i.e. violins. Say I would take Oistrakh and Kogan on the Wilson with metal domes (definitely not on any other music, had the WP7 long before and I couldn't get over their bass freq) rather than on any Sonus Faber, which is hailed as the speakers for violins. Maybe personal taste plays a role here but what are your thoughts? The +1.5db of S2 you mentioned is there to increase the presence just on some music? What other parameters do you adjust when listening? Thks.
