It's always something. Often a room doesn't sound like what you'd expect. With all the clothes and miscellaneous junk lying around my room, you'd think it'd be dead. It's pretty darn lively!

I had a similar experience but changed my mind a bit later. At first, the big room I had (approx 32.3x19.7x12, with hardwood, double wall board, and windows virtually all along one side), sounded very nice. The furniture and area rugs seemed to do the trick. Then I got very heavy curtains (three layers) for the windows -- almost floor to ceiling. The system sounded much better. It was still very alive but more neutral. We recently had the room repainted and even the removal of the heavy valances over the windows made a very noticeable difference! The curtains were still up, but the valances were down and the acoustics were much more "echo-ey" -- I assume that the absorbtion near the junction of wall to ceiling was the cause. Neither my wife nor I could believe it! So keep on experimenting -- you might like it now, but you could love it later with a few more changes. Good luck.
