I think the sound is very clear and I am happy with it. The only draw back is that the speakers do not seem very loud. I know it is a 6 ohm system and I have it in a fairly large basement room.
I have a similar set up upstairs in an almost identical set up and room size (Take 5 classic, BIC sub with denon avr1712). The take 5 seems much louder. I don't need to have ear splitting volume with my pioneer set up, but I guess I was expecting more. Is there something I am doing wrong in the set up or is it the difference between 6 ohm and 8 ohm speakers.
