Could anyone with experiece with the AR family of speakes give me advice please? Got these for testing from a local secondhand hifi dealer. So far I've only had modern speakers (mostly studio monitors, Adams, Genelecs, Neumanns). For my hifi I have Usher S-520 and also currently have the Quad 12L for testing (they are actually worse than the Ushers in my setup). I like many aspects of the AR6, the tightness, snap and grip, light flow. They are nicely revealing and very musical. But there is one thing that really bothers me: the mids (piano, horns etc) do not sound natural but nasal and honky. At least compared to all those other speakers that I've had. This honkiness worsens when turning down the treble pot on the rear of the speaker. Both speakers have the same tone. The AR6s seem to be in a pretty good shape. The woofer foam seems to have been replaced recently. Is this' nasal' tone normal, do I just need to get accustomed to the "70s" sound? Or does it seem like there is something wrong with the speakers, bad caps maybe? I really want to like them. The basic character is great. So I'm wondering if I should buy another pair of ARs in better shape, keep and try to refurbish the ones I have now, or just accept that this nasality/honkiness is part of their character and get used to them or try something else. Thanks.
