Lifestyle Soundtouch 535 series III Adaptiq speaker balance to the left
I experience a lot of difficulty to properly get the adaptiq set up on the LS535 series III. I constantly end up with audio balance to the left side (front and rear are louder) when using my favourite listening positions.
I have a symmetrical speaker setup in a square living room in which my left speakers are close to a corner (30cm) and the right speakers are on a straight wall. All speakers are mounted to the wall facing forward using Bose Wall Mounts. The centre speaker is below the TV and the acoustimass is standing on the floor close the left front speaker.
If I run adaptiq using my 5 favourite positions (primary position directly in front of the center speaker, 2 meters) the audio balance is way off to the left. This is really anoying since the sound effects coming from the right side are hardly noticable.
I can only get the audio more or less centered if I trick-f*ck the system and perform a "offset" adaptiq procedure, choosing all positions well to the left of my room (in between left front and rear, looking to the left of the TV.) This is not the way to go but the result is better yet unsatisfactory....
IMHO I think that adaptiq should be able to compensate for any differences in wall reflections but it apparently doesn't.
Bose, is there a known issue with adaptiq speaker balance since there is also a topic about the ST300 with the same issues? Is my adaptiq headset broken? I don't get any errors.....
For the enthousiasts under us, there should be a way to independently setup speaker levels or maybe a balance slider.
Does anybody else experience this?
