OK, I have compressed bass for some reason and it happens on DDHD and DTSHD or even using optical. I will try calling Ada again as there were no answers. I wonder if the board is bad or something. There is bass but it is so low I don't know what to do.
Anyways, the eD cinema 12's are the biggest bookshelves ever! They are huge! They do look nice with rounded corners and such. I have them set as 3 surrounds for now and running my music mode which engages all the speakers and subs. This mode is my favorite for music by far. Anyways the eD speakers have a very similar tone as the BFM's but a little higher pitched but I have to breakin the 12 inch driver. The DE-250 sounds a little brighter than the BFM's but it too needs some breaking in. They match the BFM's pretty good as stuff pans around the room. The sensitivity is about the same but the BFM's are 14 feet away and the eD's are 7 feet away. Once they break in I will try them as fronts and see how it sounds. They are very good out of the box but I will wait for breaking in for more details and they are already palpable. For the guys who don't know what that means it is feeling of the sound and not just hearing, can you feel the voices and instruments. Also, my eD's were totally upgraded including the woofer so they will not sound the same as others. Mine cost much more than stock! If I return them I lose money because of that.
