If you look back a few pages there are plenty of opinions both negative & positive re the musicality of the F12.
For me in my setup, it does a great job! I run a Yammy, 135 w X 7, only 5.1 for now. Many ways to listen as I suppose most receivers have, 7 channel enhanced, 2 channel enhanced, 2 channel analog with sub, 2 channel analog no sub and 'pure direct' which eliminates everything but 2 channel analog, no effect or enhancement. I like 7 channel enhanced but have become very fond of 2 channel analog with sub, sounds great! Switching between the sub and no sub gives a taste of what the F12 is bringing to the sound.
If you get a chance, try a tune called Spider by Leo Abrahams, GREAT bass line, I have it as part of The Chillout Lounge, 44 really cool tunes and a lot of it has great low end. Good test of a sub.
Again, IMHO, my F12 does a great job and is not at all 'boomy.'
