Hi there,

Not sure if this is the best place to post this message, but here goes...

We have a cheap DGTEC mini hi-fi system that we were given about a year ago. Just hooked it up the other day and all I can say is that it sounds absolutely aweful. The sound coming out of the speakers sounds extremely muffled, as if the speakers are totally covered by a blanket or something. There is no EQ on this thing, so I can't even crank up the treble to hear any of the higher frequencies.

I've tried with 3 different sets of speakers, all of which work really well when connected to my other amps. BTW, I did find that the polarity of the speaker binding posts was reversed, but at least that problem was easy to work around.

Since this little hi-fi system does have some nice features (iPod/iPhone dock, TV screen, DVD player, etc.), it would be good if we could make use of it.

Any ideas on whether the sound can be improved? I'm not sure whether these things sound this bad by design, or whether there is something wrong with my unit. I'm just a newbie when it comes to electronics, but I have modded some T-amps so I guess I'd be able to replace any components inside this system if need be.

What can cause such muffled sound? It's very frustrating when all you hear is lower mids and low frequencies... nothing whatsoever in the higher part of the scale.

Any advice gratefully appreciated.
