I am. I know they may just be hocus pocus, but I am willing to try anything ATM.
And just as an update, it has to be the amps that are reacting to something that is killing my ears, this all happened a few days ago. I was working in the theater wraping some panels for a few hours (all in absolute quite, I was relishing the quite time away from screeming kids) and my ears were really starting to hurt and started ringing bad. I though WTF, I have nothing turned on and for a second started to panic and think that it was the room, but due to the Catalysts being behind the screen I could not tell that they were turned on.
So no signal , just the idling amps caused the the exact same pain I have been getting (today my ears are shot ). I honestly don't understand how this could be, but it does seem that is not the speakers themselves. And seeming though I am the only one with this problem and I am the only one who owns them in Japan, this has to be a Japan related problem (whether it be how my house is wirred up or the quality of the power here). If there is anything else that will help this situation , I am willing to try it.
The only other thing that is different is that Japan is just about the only country that uses 100v, everyone else uses 115-120v or 220 -240v. So maybe a step up transformer as well?
