Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections): Rock, classical, jazz
System Goals/Comments: Achieve the best possible sound at a reasonable cost, e.g. maximize cost/benefit ratio
System Strengths: Very clean sound, and very good imaging for such an entry level lineup of components.
Vocals sound particularly realistic.
Response measured at sweet spot is flat +/-3 dBs from about 35Hz all the way to approx. 15KHz (Titans or/and receiver roll off a bit on the top).
System Weaknesses: Dip around 100Hz, most likely room acoustics.
Room in general is a bit small. Rear speakers are not really placed behind but almost to the sides of the sweet spot.
F,C,R speakers all at 8 feet from sweet spot, but subs are at about 6-7 feet (kind of unavoidable, at least for now)

Titans (+maybe the receiver?) roll off a bit on top
