I just checked the manual. It needs a minimum of 4 inches to the sides and back and many feet in front, since that's the exhaust (and projection path so that need should be easily met). Air intake is from the stern and port side.

In A/V reproduction accuracy, there is no concept of "accounting for taste". We don't "pick" the level of bass, etc., any more than we pick the ending of a play. High fidelity means an unmodified, neutral, exact copy (or "reproduction") of the original artist's tonal balance, timing, dynamics, etc..

I decided to go with the Panny when I saw the sale.

Yup i pulled the trigger too. Never in our life we would see such a deal again for this one. It will disappear after some time.
