    Ok, so far I've heard terms such as "bright", "warm", "midrange sound" - is there any glossary or can anyone give a good rundown of what these terms mean (and others too if you can think of any!). Ta muchly.

    I actually have a huge glossary of these terms at home. It's one written up by a member of the Head-Fi forums, so it's geared towards headphones, but the terms are the same, so I'll dig around and see if I can find where I've saved it for you.

    In the meantime, bright just means it has a tendency to exaggerate treble (the high pitched noises,) warm means it has a slight bias towards the bottom end of the frequency, and mid-range is exactly that, the middle sounds in the frequency spectrum. Most human voice lives in the mid-range.

    Very basic replies, but that's what they mean
