Well, if you think of that Amar Bose (founder of Bose) was assured that measurement procedures are not as relevant as the perception of the listener is, it is really interessting that AdaptIQ is the only adjustment "possiblity" we have and there is no EQ on SoundTouch systems.
Hopefully there will be an EQ sometimes, but i guess the demarcation to the LifeStyle systems wont be given then (which costs a lot more then ST300 + adds).

It seems like sound quality and bass lvl issues are pretty much resolved for me. I have discovered that my TV's (Samsung 55mu8500) external output settings were changed somehow. I am not sure if the firmware update had anything to do with it, but I just want to put it out there. It used to be Bitstream and DTS Neo and it was changed to PCM. Boy, what a huge difference there is. When I adjusted back to Bitstream and DTS Neo, dynamic range, bass levels and thunder all came back. I would say it sounds very similar to v14 now. I suggest to take a quick look to make sure something silly like this is not messing with the bass lvls and sound.

PCM is uncompressed audio and technically it should sound better. Whichever suits your ears is the best. Glad you got your experience back. I would be curious to know how it sounds when you play something through bluetooth connection.
Hi @itsgauravkumar, I heard that PCM is uncompressed and should sound better, but it's definetely not the case for me. Maybe the number of channels play a role here as PCM is streo and DTS Neo is 5.2? DTS Neo sounds full, rich, crisp and has awesome dynamic range whereas PCM sounds weak.
I just played a few songs through bluetooth, although the base is not as crisp and thunderous like hdmi, it's not bad overall. I wonder if the sounds is still going through TV when connected through bluetooth. Normally I never play anything through bluetooth, I think it defeats the purpose of this great system.
