Recently bought energy c-1s, they sound incredible for the 300 i payed for em!but...not as good as in the store? in the store they ahd them hooked up to a $350 yamaha stereo reciever, and a good cd player(i think around the same price, maybe higher). Anyway i noticed in the store they sounded so effortless for a bookshelf speaker, and they had more bass as well, and just sounded mroe accurate and less blaring. Now i am running an old 80s reciever (nikko 3035, 35 WPC), and granted that could be the problem, im using a computer with a pci sound card, which may or may not compare to the scource at baybloor. Anyway im curiuous whats making the difference in sound? the lack of bass i can understand, as the bass out of the right channel is SEVERELY limited. But im curious why the big difference in overall sound? Sorry for the spelling, and please help a confused kid out.
