I read through alot of forums and found alot of people having the same issue as me.
Anyway, I ended up getting the KEF IQ3 which is a much better speaker in the price range. Great imaging, smooth, and can keep up with any type of music. I would also consider the Energy RC-10. I have heard the bigger RCs and they sound amazing.
