I am extremely disappointed in my new speakers, and am wondering whether they are faulty. I currently have them set up with subwoofer on carpet beneath my feet. Satellites I have moved to window and bookshelf, about six and four feet from me respectively. I am currently listening to 'A Day In The Life' by The Beatles, at 02:20, the passage after the ringing alarm clock beginning 'Woke up fell out of bed", and the vocals sound like they are in a tin can, being so muffled. Is this correct for these speakers? Is there any way they are faulty? They are not nearly bright enough. There's no obvious fault with them in terms of sound not coming out of the speakers, just generally muffled-sounding sound. The bass is set to the lowest level (otherwise it's stupidly thumping), and the MP3s are generally 320kbit VBR played through Windows Media Player with no graphic equaliser. Listening to 'With The Beatles', the speakers do not sound faulty in any way I would say. I'm not that easy to please, I guess, I'm not going to post adulatory reviews of £30 5.1 speaker systems, but comparing the Aego M to my Woolworths Micro System (yes really), with the cables plugged into the aux of that, although the speakers noticeably lack bass in comparison, the music feels far more natural, in that I don't really notice the speakers. It's all very well to say of speakers that you can pick out the instruments, but with these I certainly don't feel any sense that I'm picking out instruments and voices in the song, but just that I'm listening to the speakers themselves. If they are not faulty, what can I do to get a sound that doesn't suffer from these defects?
