Yes, the people at Primare were also surprised that it sounds bright, but it does!
Thanks for the info, I was clearly under the wrong impression! A search has revealed that the PRE30 was the first machine Bladelius designed for Primare.
My amp is the NHT XDa unit that is part of the XDs system. (bi-amped PowerPhysics Class D amps with digital equalization by DEQX). review is here: http://www.soundstage.com/revequip/nht_xd.htm
I'm sure that the amp/speakers are generating some of the brightness, so I need something to tame that just a bit.
Do you think the T3 will sound much like the Primare? I've been told the Adcom might be a good choice, but I've read that it can be a bit bright as well.
