This is a New York City apartment system in a relatively small “living room” area of a larger living/dining/kitchen. I sit about 6’ from the speakers and I have some bass problems. 

I enjoy listening to all varieties of music and strive for a rich yet detailed sound which will not be fatiguing. I think the weak links I need to sort out are mostly placement related and maybe the DAC as the Schiit creates audible distortion on loud passages.
