Ah ok, they're on Tidal nothing in BluOS. Will try that next.

Well...inconclusive. It was definitely worse on the left. So I physically switched the speakers. Now it's mostly on the right but some can still be heard on the left. Its not constant. And, as I said, the Bluesound has boomier, deeper bass than th...

well they sounded perfectly in phase before this happened so I seriously doubt that. and I never heard, in 50 yrs being a budget audiophile of a out-of-phase speaker having a bass slap.

I'll keep all that mind when I get 'round to testing. I think I noticed, after the update, a reverby sound esp to vocals as well. I am worried that - at lower volumes I heard the slap as well but that could be worry playing tricks. Will let all kn...

So the ribbon "slapping" isn't fatal? I was not playing it any louder than I ever do.

Yes BluOS tone control is off. Been procrastinating as I am afraid of result (though they are still under warranty). First I will swap left to right and see.Weird I can't seem to hear it on CD.

No any ideas then? 
I Need Some Opinions...
I don't know your tonearm but if it's low mass you probably can't go better than a Grado MI.  
These seem a bit pricey $$$
Just saying... even the latest Corvette, which might have similar statistics as any Ferrari it's like a pick-up truck to a Ferrari, I kniw. We don't understand true sports cars because we have so few roads that they're useful on.    
Whats playing on your system today?
CD: XTC, Apple Venus Vol 1... sublime stuff.  
How much is "LOUD" still a reference point for some?
I pretty much only play loud, Bach to Motorhead and everything in between, so that's my only listening range. And Magnepans still are around and still do play loud if you have the power. Have a newish pair.  
what's your opinion on the magazine 'stereo review'??
EVERY Brit magazine is worlds better than EVERY American magazine on ANY topic.  
Emotiva not so good
Compare them to anything with the same price point and power, etc. and there really isn't much. Especially if you live far from any audio stores and have to research online magazine reviews - which by the way are all very good of Emotiva.
