1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    I also have a DSpeaker. It automatically removed a room mode of 75Hz for me. Well worth it.

    Thank you, it makes sense. I will try!

    Bright or simply harsh or shrill?

    Bright means the frequency curve upticks at the higher frequencies.

    In reality you are hearing noise distorting the sound from about 4 KHz upwards.

    Using shielded power leads may help.

    With the Rega kit I'd suggest go full Rega, not bright at all, maybe a bit dry.
    Just add speakers and cables.
    Probably working better closer to rear wall than Epos.

    Ok, thank you all for your help. I will try a Rega RX1 speakers.
    Steve maybe is right , maybe not bright but sometimes a bit harsh.

    If the speaker cable has silver plated copper strands it will be bright. Original QED 79 strand is a good cable.
    I think this is exacerbating the main issue which seems to be the Rega CDP versus a Rega TT. Try another CDP. Maybe an Arcam, as they tend to sound more laidback.

    Your room has sound issues, they all do, without seeing how your system is set up, it will be hard to help.
    Expos M15 are good speakers, well placed within the room and you setting at the right spot, they should sound spectacular.
