RE: AES/EBU Digital Cable Sounds Harsh

Sounds like the Monarchy is still doing a great job!

Still, it must be disappointing trying out the AES/EBU cable and actually hearing things get worse vs at a minimum no difference in sound.

All I can add now is sheer speculation as I am not familiar with the Emotiva unit, other than what I can find on the internet. From what I am reading there are symptoms that you describe attributed to the digital volume control. But if you find you are leaving the volume control level alone, regardless of which cable, the culprit may be elsewhere.

My gut is telling me it's not the cable. But putting some more hours of burn in on the cable doesn't cost anything. So I suppose it's worth a try.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
