My room still is not worthy of them. My brother comes home from school this weekend and I think I'm going to enlist him to help me get these things onto furniture sliders and help me measure and push 'em around. Right now they are still directed straight at me with no toe and nowhere near the ideal "golden ratio". I just plopped them where the old ones were because it was easiest and didn't require me moving around other furniture. They sound great, but I am pretty sure once I get them toed well (and thusly get some of the residual energy off my untreated side walls) they'll sound even better. Either way, they are a crazy improvement over my old Digms, adding impact and authority to music at levels those poor things would never achieve without letting out the ghost, lol.
You'll have to stop by some day to take a listen!
P.S. When you getting those treatments
...though, I should shut my mouth since I need them, too, haha.
edit: oh, and some stupid/funny -- I still can't get past my old habits of wondering whether or not I've broken something. Last weekend I had the Metallica Through The Never soundtrack on, LOUD, like +8 for some songs. Then, I'd turn it back down to reference, and wonder "OMG, I hope I didn't hurt something." Usually it was because it seems on that disc much of the cymbals are mixed heavily to the right side of the soundstage, so I'd think, "wait, was all the high frequency content coming from that speaker all along, oh no, did I blow the left tweater, ahhhhhh!". Cuz, at +8, I'm sure my poor old digms would've smoked a tweater (and maybe a mid, too) and I keep thinking I'm going to hurt these things. But, I go behind them, switch off all the amplifiers, and turn on each in succession to make sure all drivers are there and working, and they are...no harm done, lol. Paranoid, much....eventually I'll get over it, I suppose, haha.
