685 s2 - Poor Bass
Have about 15 hours on a pair being driven by a Marantz nr1403 50watt receiver. I realize the Marantz may be a bit underpowered and I am planning on upgrading. But I primarily listen at low to moderate levels and only 2.1 so I feel I should get pretty good performance. The speakers are 10 inches from the wall and so far the bass is anemic. I've been setting the cross-over to the sub at 80 or 100 to get decent bass. Decided to run Audyssey, ran it 3 times and it choose to crossover at 120/150/120. When I auditioned them in-store compared to Martin Logan Motion 15 without sub, they definitely did not go as deep as the Motions but I don't recall them being this thin. Anyone have any thoughts on why I'm nowhere near how low they are rated for? Will another 85 hours of break-in really make that much of a difference? Any 685 S2 owners care to comment on your bass performance and amp/receiver you are using.
