Aero: visceral has a variety of meanings: the literal one is that your guts move. Another is that you feel moved. Intuition, deep inward feelings. The SE846 bass is powerful and vibrates your ears. Depending on what you're listening to, it can be a very moving experience, especially as bass is very very clean.
I'd rather consider the idea that powerful bass is NOT audiophile as a bunch of rubbish. Audiophile is a person who either enjoys music and goes to extremes to get great playback of it, or a person who loves music and buys gear to support a habit. Both audiophiles are hifi enthusiasts. The idea that bass isn't audiophile is rubbish. Go to a concert. Almost all concerts will have massive subwoofers that allow you to feel the bass. It doesn't matter where you are or who is attending. If bass is there, it is amplified. Why? Because it is hard to hear otherwise - at least when sized next to mids and vocals.
The SE846 can't slam your body - that is impossible. And psychoacoustics aren't my field but the physical feeling of more - clean - bass is triumphant. It it stays where it is supposed to, then it can be as audiophile (to anyone's definition) as possible. Of course, preferences have to be served. I'm not one of the group that claims that to be audiophile a speaker system has to be line flat. Firstly, not usually possible; secondly, everyone has different tastes.
