Hi I'm a newbie to this forum.
I am the proud UK owner of a pair of Quest Z speakers, serial number QEEH401Z. I bought them from another user a couple of years back.
In most respects I believe they provide one of the most authentic and musical sounds imaginable. In particular I find their reproduction of the solo female voice simply amazing.
However, I do have one problem with them. I find their bass response very "loose". They have a contour switch that reduces -3db from 60 to 150Hz. However, setting this on renders bass a bit life-less, while leaving it unset leaves the bass very loose, boomy and imprecise.
I have installed power cleaning devices to the wall sockets to see if this would help and they do, but only a bit.
I have also tried setting the contour switch on and adding a REL Stentor II sub-woofer to the system. However, this seems to complicate matters further and I'm not sure then that all three speaker systems, ML electrostatic, ML bass unit and REL achieve the right cut-overs.
Is this bass problem typical with Quest Z speakers ? If so is there a cure or an upgrade that I can buy ?
