Thought I’d start a new thread on what some have done to recalibrate or tweak their systems after updating to Sunlight. It’s clear that Sunlight is a move forward in sound quality, but as many have come to realize this can be a double-edged sword. The lower noise floor in the DSD can now more easily reveal inadequacies in your system and poor recordings. Strip away noise and grunge and you’re going to get more clear picture of the recording quality and other components in your system. On excellent recordings Sunlight is a blessing, but on some poorly recorded CDs getting a clearer perspective of the recording distracts from enjoying the music. What’s odd though is that some poorly recorded CDs now sound better.
So what I’ve done so far to recalibrate my system is reposition of my speakers by decreasing toe in, along with ordering the Harmonic Technology Magic Audio HDMI cable, which I hope helps further refine the sound compared to the stock cable.
