Some Ram 100 speakers, which were getting rave reviews at the time. Sounded awful to my ears, all bass and very little else, to this day, I think they must have been faulty to sound that bad, but a mate thought they were great, and 6 weeks after I purchased them he bought them from me. Just shows there is no accounting for musical taste
Speakers for me too. I bought (second-hand) a pair of Wilson Benesch Curve. They were beautiful to look at, with excellent build quality, but after the first couple of months the sound was "un-liveable-with". Harsh, shouty, in your face and utterly devoid of emotion. They were an item I was glad to move on. Apart from that I don't think I'v ehad many "howlers" although I've had stuff that didn't really gel with the rest of the system. I could never get the Koetsu Black I had to work in the Wilso
We have all done it, though we may not like to admit it!
What decisions have you made on your audio journey that took money and sound quality backwards.
I remember one, a speaker purchase, and despite the attentions of several friends and multiple positioning experiments, I moved them on within a fortnight: they just were not for me and reduced the scale of the music, at the bottom and top ends, to being barely there. Whacking great horns with single drivers are definitely not my bag!
aaah, should have read more closely.....
A DC Blocker would seem to be the way to go in that case, but I didn't experience any issue like this so can't offer any experience I'm afraid.
Good luck with getting the issue sorted, worth the effort!
