Love the O2... disappointed in bass
my old h320 beats my O2 in the bass department. unfortunate because i NEED BASS. i found this out be testing both players with the same song alternately.
I have my EQ's last two bass bands at +9 and +7 respectively, and use Mach3Bass at +3 usually.
problem is if I tweak the bass any more, bass drums get terrible "bass fart" and become distorted. very disappointing. for tracks that aren't as bass drum-heavy I can turn up the Mach3 to about 8, any more and distortion occurs.
at any rate it is impossible to get "max bass" out of my player, especially for R&B and many industrial tracks.
anybody else have this problem?
