Share your B&O EQ settings

Any audiophiles out there care to share your EQ settings? I set what "sounds" good to me but I'm sure it could be better.

Impossible to generalize unfortunately. Depending on the type of music, and your hearing abilities, will determine the optimal settings for your car. The best suggestion would be to use a track from a genre of music that you commonly listen to as a starting point. Then adjust each frequency until you hear it bes from your point of view. You'll probably need to listen to the same track several times to get it right, but keep adjusting until you hear what you are expecting. good luck

I noticed the other day the the B&O has 2 pre programmed settings -- studio and extended. Anyone know the difference?

Here are mine and I think it sounds awesome. I use studio mode because it sounds like the artist is in the car. You have a much better soundstage with studio mode.
