    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 12.07

    You really like the 266XL? The one I like best of that dbx product line is the 160A and the older 166, I never liked the 266...

    New Suhr has "dead" notes :(

    I have a Tokai LS3 that has a dead spot on C# on the low E-string (much less on the same note A-string, frets and setup are perfect). I had a Furch Red Master's Choice acoustic where the low G would almost immediately turn into its 5th. I returned that. Most acoustic guitars have some kind of...

    Atomic CLR - WHOA!

    My 2 CLRs have the same hiss that's independent of level... Hard to use them as studio monitors but meaningless for "normal" use.

    Best Powered FRFR Monitor

    Well, I can't do that anymore since I neither have the Verve nor the RCF anymore. You should be able to hear which is truer to the direct (line-out into ProTools) recording though. My (limited) measuring capabilities showed what my ears heard: the Verve's frequency response was all over the...

    Dynacord AXM 12a FRFR...any tips/ advice

    ;-) I like the CLR a tiny bit more soundwise, but I'd be happy with both. I bought the CLR's at Andertons last year. They had a very good price when they were available...

    Dynacord AXM 12a FRFR...any tips/ advice

    It used to be my main FRFR (after some others) until I got two CLR's. But I still have and use the Dynacord, too.

    There's a "direct" recording that you can use as a reference. And the Verve with my corrective EQ applied. Go to the playlist, there's 3 files.

    Dynacord AXM 12a FRFR...any tips/ advice

    In wedge position use the M1 setting, on a pole or a case the PA setting. That's all IMO.

    Best Powered FRFR Monitor

    Here's my old comparison between the RCF and the FBT (without EQ), the direct signal and the FBT with EQ. Wedges miked AFAIR with a ECM8000 about 1m away center. I seem to be not able to share the playlist, so go in there and you'll find three files...

    The Verve is "coloring". I was the one that did the corrective EQ IR. It was unusable without it. The CLR is as flat as it probably gets, Dynacord 2nd, RCF 3rd. (from those I personally know).

    If you really like the Verve search my old posts here about it... From your list I know (and have) 2 CLRs and the Dynacord. They're both great.
