    I have Energy C-7 fronts, matched with a Marantz SR-9300 receiver and Marantz DV-8400 player (being used for audio only, fed through a Bel Canto DAC2).

    A couple of quick questions. Firstly, do you think the speakers are letting the system down? They are certainly not as expensive as the 50% or so of a system they are 'supposed' to be. They're actually the cheapest component.

    Secondly, I'm finding that with bass-heavy music (some dance music etc) that the bass gets too boomy for my taste. I do, of necessity, have the speakers placed fairly close to the corners - they are currently two feet from the rear wall and only one foot from the side wall. The floor is timber but has a large rug on it. However, the walls are made from some sort of concrete (I live in South Korea) and could possibly be bouncing the bass around a bit.

    Are the C-7s known to lose the bass a little? Should I get new speakers (I've had my eye on the Elac 207.2)? I'll be moving house in a few weeks, so should I wait and see how the current setup goes in the new place?

    Thanks.

    Rooms have far more to do with the final sound that you hear that many people realise and if you are moving home in a few weeks it may be a good idea to see how your existing speakers sound in your new home.

    I don't know Energy speakers at all but having looked at the website it would seem that they are front ported so should work satisfactorily at two feet away from the walls.
