I am going to take a shot here.. I have a feeling you have 'over treated'. I have listened to speakers in dozens of showrooms here in my country, none of them sound even as close to my 'untreated' room with my 'natural bookshelves all around'.
It's a shot in the dark though. Try taking your system to another 'untreated' room and see if you still have those problems....
I know this is an unconventional take on the matter, but sometimes, when everything else is eliminated, the only thing we did not think about might be the culprit.
I am going to 'assume' the 228s are excellent speakers considering the 212s I have are so darn good, so there must be something wrong in the setup...
