I have received my New Onkyo TX-8555 a little while back and never said anything about it which is a new thing for me because I was very happy:) anyways, I had all my stuff in a wooden floor bedroom and the speakers were 12 feet away from me and I couldn't really the good stuff because it was so lively in the room
I recently moved my stereo stuff into a back room 8'x22', yeah long and narrow, it used to be a porch. my speakers are about 5 feet from my head now so I'm rockin out! the room is super dead too. I have some throws I'm thinking about hanging on the walls behind the speakers, unless I shouldn't hang them behind the speakers, I don't know.
Wow, sorry it sounds so choppy but I just had a cup of coffee and have been wired for about 2 hours now lol
