Devil's advocate ...

Yes, the setup appears far from perfect.

But, with a chair pulled up to the area rug (near-field listening) it *might* sound pretty good.

Reach full potential? No. Sound pretty good? Quite possibly.

I've heard many a system that sounded far better than they looked like they should.

That definitely includes mine.

I've heard several high-end systems in "professionally designed and treated rooms" that should have sounded glorious, but instead sucked all the life and joy out of everything played.

I never judge a system until I've heard it.

Just my 2-cents... and worth half what you paid.


reelsmith's axiom: Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.
