Hi everyone,
I’ve just bought a used c325BEE amp and it’s in excellent condition. I assume it’s working as it should (but I base that on its overall condition which looks cared for). It’s a very musical amp and I like the speed and detail it brings.
Used with an original Arcam Alpha & Wharfedale Diamond 9.1’s
The problem:
Is that the midrange actually hurts my ears at certain frequencies: voices/electric guitars whatever.
Is there anything I can do/can be done to alleviate this?
I am of the understanding there are no caps in the signal path so that leaves me wondering about whether it’s worth pursuing improving this amp - the Nait 3 could be tamed by a couple of Elna Silmic’s in the signal path which replaced the originals.
Is this nad amp different to that?

Tube output stage on the pre-amp?

Many thanks in advance.

Hard midrange comes down to a poor design scheamatic, so you have to live with it.
Changing caps on the power supply would help not much but some.

Addting tube buffer would help, but sometimes poor tube quality schematics actually degrade the overall sound.
