For the record, I also found the 220 bass light with the Nad, so if the new ones are similar, I'd try something else - Mission or Elac.
Edit: autocorrect had turned "Nad" to "Bad" Fixed now.
They are not made to be put on a shelf. They will sound awesome on proper speaker stands.I found them bass light WITH the Nad c316 bee. I also experimented a bit with positioning, but in my dad's room they sit on a shelf, close to the back wall. Still not enough bass, imo.
