I have to agree, something I'm not liking. The high end lost something for me.Same here. there seems to be more bass and its looser feeling. Seems like I lost a little gain and sustain in my Herbie 3 also. It just doesn't chunk and chug like 1.03. I tried the preamp hardness at 9.5 but its not the same. If I go back to 1.03 then I have the thunk when switching so I might have to do some tweaking to try and figure it out.
Strange it seems my sound stage collapsed a little? anyone else?
Gonna have to play with this more
(Update) - I made some adjustments with the preamp hardness and preamp Bias and it seems to bring me back to where it sounds Awesome ...lol
