    My Speculation ...

    I'm suspecting based on Mordante comments there were Bass resonance issues in the room and in order to tame they may have had to turn the bass amp down and out. Mikes comments are mostly regarding the Horns, not the bass modules which are more affected by the room and location.

    In situations like this good sound may only be available from one location , if any .......

    Could very well be. It also could be my taste. The horns gave me the idea that I was listening to multiple speakers instead of one system.

    A friend of mine has an AV Trio set up and when I first heard it I thought he had a center channel. He actually had a bass trap right between the speakers and I thought that the sound was coming from the bass trap! So I definitely question the set up where you heard them.

    Re: Avantgarde Uno XD - wow!

    Regarding the question on my listening song list and my preferences...

    Listening now to Kurt Vile - Wakin' on a Pretty Day. One of my favorite albums of last several years. Love Kurt Vile.

    I listen to lots and lots of old Grateful Dead shows and Phish shows. Listened late last night to the 3/29/90 released Dead show with Branford Marsalis.

    The listening with friend that I referenced was to an 8/4/17 Phish concert we both were at in NYC.

    Love some old Allman Brothers - Live at Fillmore East.

    Listen to lots of jazz, especially Miles Davis. Stuff like In a Silent Way, Jack Johnson recordings etc. right up my alley. Love Keith Jarrett. Grant Green. Freddie Hubbard. Stuff with some groove.

    Have blown away by how good a couple unplugged MTV albums sound on this. 10,000 maniacs, Clapton, REM.

    Was just listening to some Bob Marley with morning coffee. Sounds great.

    The most exciting part is that I haven't even remotely started optimizing things. Mike is coming in 10 days to help dial me in. I haven't touched bass setting. I haven't played much with speaker placement. I haven't rolled tubes. I haven't replaced the stock jumper cable or power cords for the subs. I haven't optimized cabling choices around new speakers. Amps aren't broken in. Etc etc etc.

    So, quite exciting to me that there's so much room for growth from here.
