Hello All, I've just bought a 3910 & 3805 & am very happy with it all, especially SACD via DL3. The best sound I've found so far is with using pure direct on 3910, but using Room EQ on 3805. I found using pure direct on amp took all life out of the music & cd's just didn't sound how they do on other systems. I am used to using digital eq's in my job & 9/10 I would choose analogue EQ over digital, & there are only a few decent digital eq's, which are pretty expensive. Because of this I was expecting to bypass the 3805's Room Eq & go for Pure Direct. However, it just don't sound right! I suppose very 'flat' systems can sound boring, but I'm sure not like this. ?
