RE: ESS Sabre Filter Settings

Hi Duster. When I got my X12 I must admit I didn't really give much thought to the Sharp and Slow settings; I just left it on the Sharp setting. But your post caught my interest and I began experimenting with the Slow setting. After playing a variety of music I'm very familiar with and switching back and forth between Sharp and Slow settings I can agree with what you found to be true. So now I have another useful tool at hand.

"With the 'Slow' setting, the subjective effect is not particularly "less relaxed", but the top-end is less spotlighted so the treble energy seems more subdued in comparison. This finding could contribute to a listener wanting to playback a particular track on the 'Slow" setting in order to have a more immersive soundstage presentation for example; a bit less front row perspective."

Thank you!
