In these past few months, I have aquired components for a new home theater system. My old stereo (yes I am old) which I was running up till a few months ago, consisted of a Luxman R1050 receiver and two Ohm C2 speakers.
I just bought a low end Yamaha RX-A8000, two Polk Monitor 70's Series II for front speakers, one Polk Cs2 Series 2 for a center speaker, and two Polk Monitor 60's series II for rear speakers and a Polk CSW10 for a subwoofer. I also got a Samsung 60" UN60D6400 HDTV.
I just now wired the speakers to the Yamaha and turned the Yamaha to FM reception. I haven't hooked up the subwoofer yet. It is late, so I did not turn the volume up too much, nor have I figured out too many of the settings for the Yamaha. The Yamaha was playing FM through the two front Monitor 70's. As far as I can tell, the audio through the Monitor 70's has almost no bass compared to the Ohm C2's and the Luxman, and the midrange and imaging sounds flat and lifeless.
Am I doing something wrong here? Or is this new stuff junk??
