    Sorry to hear that. Keep your fingers crossed for me. Mine is in transit.

    I'm really hoping a the "full sized" Loki is not far behind. I'd assume it will have balanced inputs/outputs. I'd be really curious the check it out. Other than what's listed on the website have any other little hints been dropped on its release?

    I'd say the name itself implies a possible larger (expanded features) version. Though not listed directly on the product page, I've seen it referred multiple times as the "Loki Mini"...

    Echoing the sentiment for a big brother of Loki, or even just these adjustments with uber-transparency and balanced XLR.

    Would be perfect fit for finalizing the tuning in my 2.1 speaker setup where even with careful placement and acoustic treatments there are a couple two db peaks that make the sub-bass too much compared to higher bass/lower mids due to standing waves. With JotiUber could tweak the subwoofer lower in volume then turn that bass knob up a few decibels to get some warmth and well rounded bass.

    In case someone wonders: with Yggdrasil in the chain, not going to mess those bits around with digital eq. It seems that it is purer to do the correction in (well-implemented) analog domain. Not sure if this really logical?

    Is there a combination of the bass and mids knobs that can approximate a mid-bass pulldown and sub-bass boost? It looks like the lower-mid is centred too high around 400Hz. Maybe something that doesn't fuck up the mids too much, but still flattens out the bass?

    Assume you are asking about HD650. Still trying to find the spot for them too. HD800 seems to work well with Loki. But that's for me and my preferences. Great start to what I hope will be the first in a line.

    Yes, I was referring to HD650. Sorry if quoting Marv re "HD650 rolloff" wasn't clear enough. I sometimes use XBass on my iDSD which helps with the rolloff, but not the midbass bump. I guess 4 knobs isn't enough to make this specific a level of adjustment.

    Realized my first sentence came off wrong. Yeah I don't think their is a way to deal completely with the bump. The 400 Hz is too far away. Luckily for me it isn't really a bother.
    I'm finding just a bit of movement near the top point at 12 o'clock can make a pretty decent difference. Yeah perhaps 4 is a good starting point and what was best to keep the price point where it is, but could use more. Hopefully we will see a Max version at some point soon. Still haven't tried it on my speaker rig. Maybe this weekend. No regrets at all on the purchase. Makes the KSC-75's sound way above their price point. IMHO.
