Very nice. You might get a little better results if you bring the loudspeakers out into the room a little more and perhaps a little toe-in.

Very nice! Any issues regarding heat for the A23s? Just curious as they are stacked one on the other in a tight space in the rack.

No issues. The rack is open on all sides and I have a fan at the back to remove any heat build up.

Understood.

It's not a large room, so it's about as good as I can make it for now. They are about 2 feet from the rear wall.

In response to an earlier discussion about grills on or off i for one love the look of them off. Plus i was told by my B&W dealer that when playing at high volumes the excursion of the diamond dome can exceed the space available with the grill. Sadly he told me this after i shattered a $1000 tweeter. I now leave all grills off and it sounds exceedingly better knowing i will not break another expensive tweeter!
You don't know the feeling of relief that I felt seeing those room treatments up after seeing the bare walls in the first picture. Quite some gear and love the look of the Diamonds.

Yes living spaces are a bummer sometimes.

I had a feeling. I wonder how the MA ribbon tweeters compare to the RAAL used for the Ascend Acoustics Sierra speakers.

I've wondered the same thing. I have rx8s and have thought about trying the sierra towers with raal for the upstairs den and have the 7.1 rx setup in the (yet to be built) ht space in the basement. I've liked the gx and plats I've heard in the past and have heard nothing but great things about the raal towers.
