Thanks Doc for your assessment and advice.  In spite of the problem my hearing tests ok.  I’ll review this with my new pcp.  Currently involved with recent onset of Afib which altered the character of my hearing issue.  Conversion has me in sinus ...

Mijostyn offers excellent advice about masking and determining what frequencies might be reduced or augmented to alleviate your problem.  Some McIntosh integrated amps offer equalizers that could be used for this purpose.  My issues are a bit diff... 
Recommended solid state amp for user with tinnitus
Tinnitus can be very frustrating, especially for audiophiles.  I suffer from pulsatory tinnitus hearing loud swooshes of blood flow in my left ear with every heartbeat.  I can turn it down by adjusting my head and neck position. Crazy and maddenin...

DIY 'rack' made from dead tree brances ?

Just received shipment of my Magnepan LRS’s
I am interested in how the LRSs compare to the Magnepans you used in the past. What were they?  Like many I started with MMGs and moved up to 1.7s.  My Son uses the MMGs now.
