    Hey all

    So I just bought a pair of the Tannoy Revolution speakers second hand - 8 months old and pristine condition (£600, I read the reviews and everyone raved about them so I thought a bargain at that price).
    Anyway, I hooked them up to my Denon x3300 receiver as part of my 7.0 surround sound setup (I need a sub!).
    However, the bass when playing the Tannoys in stereo mode seems conspicuously thin compared to the way I expected from all the reviews.

    Could it be the receiver messing with things or am I expecting too much? I've played bass heavy tracks and they sound very light indeed.

    Thanks!

    Yep, they are.
    I will say this; I haven't done another Audyssey set up since the change of fronts, but my understanding is that's more for crossover/volume levels etc

    I think I've sorted it: the "auto" selection must have been interfering with the output. Direct or Pure Direct seems to fix it.
