How do I improve music listening?
We have a Denon AVR-789, paired with Energy Take Classics, and relied on BatPig's tutorial to help set everything up. We used to have the Energy speakers set up for 5.1 in the old home, but just moved to a new house and currently have it as 3.1 without the surrounds.
I have tried to position the speakers above the TV and also below to see which sounded best. It sounds fine while on the couch, but if listening to music and standing in the kitchen it feels like I'm "out of the sound zone". I guess I shouldn't be surprised by this effect since the speakers are pointed towards the couch.
Our home has an open floor plan where the living room opens into the dining area and kitchen. I've attached some photos of the model home. It is approximately 20 feet from the TV to the couch and also 25 feet from the kitchen to the center of the TV.
Is it possible to place speakers so that movies sound good, as well as be able to fill the entire space (kitchen/dining/living) when listening to music? Am I asking too much from the Take Classics? Thank you for any advice you guys can share.
