Thx again guys, love the responses…really appreciate it!
Now, my bad, as I should have mentioned that I am running them with a REL T-Zero sub, which I love. REL’s just seem to blend naturally with any monitors I’ve used them with. So the bass overall is getting sweet. My only concern is that older rock can sound a little thin. (Yes, I still have my share of those CD’s, and listen to them as needed). Seems like the 3i’s are very revealing, so that good recordings sound amazing, but less good are shown up. Can’t knock them for that. Am I right?
Or, maybe as suggested here, some of the bloom will fill out and the peak I hear in the upper middle will dissipate.
But again, I’m real happy with how my better recordings are sounding (that’s most of my collection)…as good as I’ve ever heard, and I’ve owned many small speakers in the past (some examples: Spica tc 50’s, KEF ls50’s, ref 3a Dulcets, Spendor 3/5 R2’s, etc). These Omegas are doing the things I hoped for when I ordered them after reading all I could about single driver systems…mostly from these threads. Definitely a class act.
The listening adventure continues…
