@claero If it helps, perhaps write out your question / concerns / issues in your own language and use an online translator. It might work better to get your points across.

I’m missing some points but the main questions claero asks are about a possible mismatch between his new Simaudio power amp and Linn Kisto preamp; secondarily he’s asking whether the gain of the Sim might be excessive. He asks due to deterioration in sound quality after switching from a Krell amp to the Sim W5. Poor SQ is evidenced by excessive emphasis on high frequencies ("super airily high pitch even mans vocal"), lack of midrange (I’m not clear about effect on bass) but overall a sound that is lean and thin. He’s also finding his volume control range is greatly reduced.
@claero - Hope you get some suggestions. Your Kisto looks to be a complicated bit of processor. Know nothing about either the Sim W5 or the Linn so unable to offer any guidance, myself. Good luck.
thanks for your explanation .
after setting change , its seems normal now .
this is what i did . i can tell was the gain have huge differences.
i have to turn down my center channel level from -3 to -13(match with my front speakers) . then the sound become normal now . it is a bit more focus on the high frequency compare to krell . .and i can turn up the volume at least.
the gain affect the tone balance very much . it just scare me........
thanks every one
