I unpluged my fridge, and unluged my internet and cablebox. It now sounds amazing. the center is less bright but great punch at -7.5 db. The fronts have punch also, I can hear far more detail yet the fronts now are quieter DB wise at -6 and -6.5. Even though they are 2.5-3 db softer than the last test they are much louder and sound very crisp. This sounds amazing. I paid full attention to the distance away from the cushiion, exactly 2 ft from the cement wall and exactly 11 inches from the cushion on the couch. Thats it. The difference is drastic. I can even notice a difference between audyseey settings now.
Glad the tips worked out for you! Enjoy!

I have consistently gotten the best results by determining the best toe-in angle for the fronts before calibration. There is no generally agreed formula for adjusting the toe-in angle; it depends on your speakers and your room configuration.

+1. Since toe-in affects the high frequency response at the MLP, it is essential that toe-in be done before the calibration. And if toe-in is altered at a later date, a new calibration should be run.

As regards to toe-in IMHO it is always best to follow the manufacturer's recommendations. Should the Manual of the speakers describe it, then it should be followed. Shoud there be no mention of angling the speakers then its up to experimenting.

In my case since Dali explicitly recommends front L&R speakers to be put parallel to the front wall due their implementation of so-called "wide dispertion pattern" throughout the whole frequency range I have had no better results than when their suggestion was followed.

Look up your speaker's Manual for more details.
