I have a pair of rp280f's using with a Yamaha rx 880.

Listening to music in straight stereo through Marantz cd player, i'm getting quite a bit of sibilance? (I think you call it) on vocals. I played some Anne Lenox and on certain tracks there's a fizzy,trebley edge to the vocals, especially on "oooh" or "ahhh" vowels that really stand out. There's the vocals,then this distorted edge right next to it. It's as if the tweeters are giving out too much and distorting. But, other times they sound wonderful and the edginess seems to die down and they clean up.
I have my treble quite high but I don't think this is the problem as like I say sometimes they sound a lot cleaner ,to the point that I sit there and think "these sound amazing" and I've not noticed this before on other speakers.

I just don't know what i'm going to get from day to day. They're either having a bad day, it's my ears or the electric to the whole house. lol
