I usually just squirt some WD-40 in there.

Unfortunately for me, I had my ears professionally cleaned and then had a hearing test. I can’t hear much if anything over 8K. The Audiologist told me it is quite normal for a 67 year old man. I had noticed the treble wasn’t as prominent as it used to be and now I know why. I was wondering why the Focal speakers my friend had with the BE tweeters didn’t feel like an ice pick in my ears. For the time being, a 2db treble boost on the preamp seems to have helped quite a bit until I research a audiophile approved hearing aid. It took me 50+ years to finally get my dream system, only to be held back by hearing loss. Life is not very fair!
i have been very careful with my ears the past 30 years or so but when in my teens and early 20’s, I went to many Rock concerts where I was sitting close to the speakers and my ears would be ringing for days afterwards. If I knew then this would happen, I would have been more careful. I have no one to blame but myself😥
I think you speak for many when you say "It took me 50+ years to finally get my dream system, only to be held back by hearing loss. Life is not very fair!". So true. If I could only hear the system I have now with the hearing I had in my youth. I too am missing out on the higher end of the spectrum sometimes leaving me doubting my equipment.
I too look back and think how I should have done things differently. Well, I'm stuck with what I have and now will just make the most of it (hearing protection when needed, no more high-volume listening, keeping my ears cleaned).
Thanks for your response. I hope some of the younger crowd takes notice...
