I have just purchased a pair of B&W 685s (which are positioned on B&W Stands), a Pro-Ject 1.2 Turntable with a Blue Point #2 cartridge, and a Marantz PM5004 about 2 weeks ago.
They are used in a room approximately 14' x 14' with a 9 to 10' foot ceiling.
I am really enjoying the set-up so far but the one thing that seems to be lacking is sufficient punch at the low-end.
Should I buy a single or two ASW 610s or ASW 608s to compliment my 685s?
I don't listen to a lot of bass heavy music and when I am listening to music that really doesn't dip into the lower hz range (Iron & Wine) there is no problem. Yet, for other music I would like to hear the bass drum hit just a little more or for it to have more presence. Right now it sounds like I am listening to a great quality speaker but I don't feel or experience it quiet as I would like.
I know bass is not good sound; I think my Etymotic Hf5 canalphones sound pretty great.
Any suggestions, tips or general feedback about the setup?
*I am listening to a mix of vinyl, cds, and eventually a DAC for WAV/Apple Lossless/high bit rate AAC files.
