|Room Size (LxWxH):||21'/6.4m x 17'/5.2m x Variable|
|Room Comments/Treatments:||Living room of open concept home with large openings to other rooms & stairs. Vaulted ceiling in front half of the room. 4 absorbers are mounted in the vaulted ceiling and 2 in the stairwell to kill the echo. Carpeted. No other treatments are really necessary since there are no significant reflections and the bass response is pretty flat.|
|Music Preferences and Comments:|
|Music Used (Genre/Selections):||Lots. See my other system for a list.|
|System Goals/Comments:||System is shared by the family in our common area, so it doesn't get used frequently for critical listening.|
|System Strengths:||Pretty flat FR, don't hear any coloration.|
Wide and notably tall soundstage (C2's forte).
Relaxed presentation invites turning the volume up.
Fills the large open room nicely.
|System Weaknesses:||Needs some volume to come alive.|
Asymmetric speaker placement in room results in left speaker having less bass extension than the right.
Subs can't handle the LFE from some Blu-Ray titles without heavy distortion unless the volume is kept down.
