Having over 20 years in system upgrades or mods.
upgrade your loudspeakers Xover unless you spend over $20 k
90% of the time the Xover has average parts at best .i hav3 called out personally
several high end mfg and in a few instances hung up on for telling the truth .
just go to Humble homemade Hifi capacitor test.which you can literally taylor the Sonic character through your speakers, another Vacuum tube amp, or preamp , In digital R2R dacs sound very analog ,as well as vacuum tube dacs .even cables can tune your system tweaks high end fuses ,and power cords.
I had the same problem with my B&W speakers. I purchased acoustic panels but the order was cancelled, so I took those funds and purchased a new preamp. It was the best decision I ever made. I don’t need the acoustic panels now and the system sounds amazing.
Also, why are you using such expensive XLR cables?
I don’t know if changing your speakers or front end is an option. Revel speakers can correct this due to the wave guide on the tweeters. Especially if you go to the BE series. If you do not want to do that then I would talk to Straightwire. They specialize in helping with these issues. I think the Expresivo 1 or 2 will help with your concerns. You should give them a call. Another idea is to change the power cables. If you go to solid core or a pretty thick gauge like 9 or 10 that should mellow out the sound a little. Also up the gauge to 12 gauge or larger especially on the preamp. Straightwire Black Thunder will do nice. If you can afford the pro Thunder for the amp pull the trigger. You will be amazed how good this sounds. I hope some of these ideas will help.
