Hegel H160 and Focal Electra 1008Be sounding bass-less
I owned the H160 paired with Dali Fazon F5 speakers. It sounded lifeless so I sold it. There wasn't much bass  at all with it. I hooked the same speakers up to a NAD M10 and it sounded better. The bass improved quite a bit which was surprising...
