SF Olympica IIIs
#11
Thanks for the tips.

BTW, do any of you alter the treble/bass settings with your Olympicas? I have them all zero'ed out, with SAM varying between 0% to 50%. I find the speakers are still quite laid back (in a GOOD way, not a bad one) but have been tempted to increase the treble a bit. Curious what everyone is setting their Devs to. Thanks!

Usually, I have the tone controls set flat and SAM at 20%. When in "party mode", I’ll tip the treble up by 1.5dB to add a little crispness to the sound.

Ah, makes sense. I find listening in the sweet spot doesn't really require any boost in treble/bass. Let the music draw you in. When listening from a distance/another room, it does sound a bit muted in the treble range though. (I have a family room space where the system sits, which opens up to my kitchen area so quite large volume of space.)
