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.

Comments on HT System: Needs matching surrounds for multichannel music
