Time to rewake this underrated band...Asianova represent my without doubts "deepest" ambient experience in headphones during night.

"That left the problem of edge diffraction from having the mids and highs on a flat baffle. That's when I came up with the idea of a rotating cylinder, but I couldn't use wires to run to the mid and high speakers; enough twisting and they'd eventually break.
That's when I came up with the "flashlight battery" solution. Run a wire to a contact at the top and bottom of the cylinder and use spring-loaded contacts to make the connections. Plus, rotating the cylinder would also clean the contacts. By placing the high crossover, and the level pots, inside the cylinder, I only needed two wires to go to it, and that worked perfectly.
Anyway, to make an even longer story shorter, that concept allowed me to use a unique set of drivers (and a design) that I would never have considered without this system approach.
There's a lot more to this design that I'm leaving out, but lemme just say I've put two years of my life into making this as perfect as I could. "
Do you get the same sound in your headphones when connected to the same source that drives the monitors....if yes then its not the monitors. As Loren said change the cables or change the monitors if you have some older ones around.
Also look to all the sample rates between various device...I have a feeling it could be something get restricted. I have had issues with devices not communicating correctly that has created similar problems easily resolved.
Is this brittle distortion coming from just one or both monitors...you say one but you show both in the video
It is a real pain and frustrating because you have to do all this detective work...pull everything apart and re-patch it all and pull some hair out and maybe send it out for repairs when it could be a simple thing you over look or did not know you needed to even look....I have done just this.
Hoping for a simple fix!
Sounds like a bad cable. I'd replace the cables running to the speaker first and see if that helps. Sometimes connectors go bad and sound like that. If that doesn't do it than it's probably internal, maybe your crossover is going out. Good luck, I hate it when gear dies, my Hafler amp in my studio died last month so I know the pain.
My main concern with second hand audio gear, is excessive wear, especially when it comes to motorized faders. I don't want to make you feel I'm a nuisance but it's an important investment for years to come, and prefer to make questions now, than to be sorry at a later time.
I live in Sweden but I buy a lot from Germany cause it is cheaper.
Alright I understand now, but the price difference for the yamaha and the x32 compact is only 200 dollars, considering your threshold for me the choice would had been easy.
well, it exist good solutions with all in one units, Prism audio have some good products..for instance..but they are expensive... I myself have the Antelope Eclipse, which is basically 3 products in one too..
hmm the DM 1000 doesn't that cost like 6000 EUR ? your budget suddenly changed ?
Behringer is a shit, sorry, I hate that shitty company, please don't recommend me their crap, because I had bad experiences with them in the past.
No, the budget is the same, considering second hand DM 1000 from a studio selling it here.

…. Behringer……. a better second hand value
Thanks for your input Immersion.
I don't have high end sources, so that ssl piece of gear, is out of my budget
If you check my synth list, you won't see an andromeda, matrix 12 or a JB solaris.
I would pay 3k for a mixer if it was better than the yamaha 01v96i... But I didn't found one, any tips?
People mention the presonus, but IMO it's not comparable to the yamaha...
Would you care to share the 'better' advice here ?, it may be of some use to someone else.
Synths to complement existing ones:
Moog Sub 37
Yamaha 01v96i digital mixer/audio interface/daw control
Neumann KH 120
Beyerdynamic DT-770 Pro 32 Ohm
Eventide Eclipse or Valhalla Plugins
Sennheiser MKH 416-P48U3
Cubase AI (free license with yamaha 01v96i) or Protools
