And the Bluetooth transfer protocol is compressing it even further.

Go get FLAC files, or if those aren't available, at least 320 KBPS MP3s (still compressed too much IMO), and transfer them to the hard drive on the M, and then play them from there. You'll find out you don't need to do fancy tricks with the EQ to get them to sound decent.

next step after that, of course, if upgrading the speakers (Bavsound Stage 1 is highly recommended) and then, if you need more bass, get one of the add-a-subs.

But first, at least get a decent quality sound source. Not Bluetooth transfer
When you import FLAC doesn't the import convert it into a poor format? I forget the exact output format, but my point of reference is E92. I'm not certain what an F82 system does on import.
