The Bass Is Muddy

I briefly owned this surround set, but quickly sold it to a neighbor. It is ok for TV, general home cinema surround use, but for music, high level playback, or more discerning listeners it disappoints.

- Satellites dont' have sufficient mid-bass response to smoothly cross over to subs at the crossover point of many surround systems.

- Sub is difficult to place, somewhat muddy, and not so smooth in its response.

- High end lacks extension and detail.

Overall I think there are better budget surround packages. Check out the offerings from SLS Sound as one example.
