Thanks to all for your help. First I believe the suggestions for burn in are spot on, it will take me a while to achieve those numbers!!
For those that are interested, I listen to strictly R&R, about 90db, via steaming with Qobuz and CD's. Pass X250.8, Benchmark LA-4 line amp, Project Rs2T transport, LTA LPS for Transport, Meitner MA-1 V2 DAC , Tekton DI upgraded, SVS SB 4000 sub, most cables Blue jeans, nothing REAL high end. Acoustics in my large shop are wonderful, just lucky there!! speakers are about 12' apart listening distance about 15' GREAT SOUNDSTAGE. Only about 125 hrs on AMP so far. Thanks again to all. I appreciate the education!!! Robert TN
