It is a bit odd to expect premium performance from any audio device with enough corners cut to be affordable for a non-critical listening application rather than deliver the entire bounty, often requiring the additional cost that was cut from the budget to begin with. If a listener can't or is not willing to pay for what is required, simply appreciating what is attempted by a designer/manufacturer at a lower price point and living with it, is just like buying any budget-minded product offering within any other marketplace. Upgrade the caps and coils, along with the wiring and binding posts if one wants improved performance, but don't expect transformative results.
