    Every so often I will clean plugs interconnects etc.Usually the plugs going to the speakers just get pulled in and out a few times as do the phonos going to my power amps (x4).
    Yesterday was one such day,but this time instead of reaching behind the power amps I decided to turn them round and take a closer look.
    To my surprise the amp that feeds my midrange speaker was wired incorrectly.
    The left out of my pre was wired to the right in of my power.
    The mid always sounded slightly shut-in,especially vocals.
    Obviously this has opened up the midrange considerably and the soundstage is now in a different ballpark.
    It just shows you that you can never fully trust a dealer to wire it up properly.

    BTW I've been using it wired incorrectly for more than eight years

    Yeah I DO have one now.
    And yes it was installed for me.

    How many people do you think trust their dealer to do the job properly and never bother to check?

    dear snapper... where have you been? I mean 98 contributions, and I've not seen you here before...where did you hide? (and I'd have noticed I promise you, with that HIDEOUS picture you have) shudder.;)

    seconded, though in my case, it was a gyrodec armboard the wrong way round. I didn't notice for 6 years. if the dealer hadn't gone bust , lets just say ....

    All I can say is life is easy with only 2 interconnects. Just as well, I don't think I could take it. My brain became full 3 years ago and it won't learn anything new - lord knows I have tried.
    You go for a walk in the park one day and wheelchair ninjas, Nazis, and pots and pans robots show up to kill you. And dinosaurs show up to eat the remains. You\'ve seen the news...?

    Not sure if this good or bad. I can learn new stuff but have to delete older/other stuff to make room
    For the believers, proof is not necessary. For the non believers, proof is not possible
