Re: Acoustimass 300, SoundTouch 300, and reports of low bass
As my post got deleted, again:
So, just to add my 2 cents here about v16 (compared to v15 and v14):
In my case, i was really satisfied with v15, even with some smaller issues. I did not like v14 at all (too much bass, way to much highs, some sounds [eg: footsteps] were strange)
v15 was very leveled in bass, even if there could be more lower mids or mids at all. The ST300 is definetily lacking mid-tones. If you compare to a Acoustimass system (we own a Acoustimass 10 Series V as well) you will notice that the old Acoustimass bass module gives a lot of more midtones then the AM300 does.
v16 sounds more like v14 which my husband and me does not like at all. Bass is to heavy, mids are still missing, highs are too heavy. Footsteps sound weired again. And speech level is as awful again as in v14. Dialoge sound is a mess again (no matter if dialoge mode is enabled or not). Women voices sound dull and to crispy in particular, i dont know how to describe exactly. Men voices are a little better, but still far from what i expect from a 1700€ system (ST300 & AM300).
@Mods: Is there a way to return the system even when testing period is over (we bought in February)? Please contact me through private message - thanks.
I am very dissapointed that your chosen beta testers only seem to concentrate on bass levels in v16, and everything else is still poor or worse as it has been. I want to make sure: The sound stage of the ST300 is phenomal and sounds absolutely phantastic, but speech is a complete mess. If your dev team tries to improve sound of speech (and give us an EQ settings possibility) the ST300 will be an amazing sound system.
