I'll be implementing my second row soon and not quite sure how that's going to work. I suspect I may have to toe them out a bit for that.
The second row will be a little tricky with the Toe-in, and you might end up making a compromise. I was messing with mine last night and it was kind of funny but the sweet spot not only widened with more toe-in, but the stage widened too. You would think the stage would shrink somewhat between the speakers the more you toe them in, but just the exact is in fact the case, at least in my room. Having as much toe in as I ended up was too much for the back row where they were WAY too far and the spl levels had dropped dramatically. Once again I found a fine compromise for now and will be happy where it is 99% of the time.

I don't in every day life (in fact quite the opposite) but when it comes to tweaking the system I'm OCD to the extreme. I played with toe in and speaker placement a ton with ever pair of speakers I've owned. This new far apart mains setup is the longest I've gone without changing anything.
Another compromise. I mentioned I had backed my LP up some and was promptly going back. Well, to get the perfect equilateral, I literally would not be able to have full view of the screen in the front row, so I once again split the difference and it was still immediately better, while still not optimal. With the room width 11 feet wide and a screen basically going wall to wall, I don't really have a choice here. I did ask the fiance about the move foward and she liked it pretty close to where I had it. I think I only needed to scoot back another few inches for full congressional approval (those of you in other countries might know what that means, we in the US have forgotten).
I still have more tinkering to do and I haven't done an Audyssey yet with the Sherbourn in, but at this point the sound is just unreal. I can't imagine it getting any better, but, I have said that before
I also wanted to point out that even though I don't incorporate JTR's anymore, I can draw WAY more parallels between the 212's and the Danley's than I can differences, and I like all the cats around here a lot. Very knowledgable crowd with similar tastes to what I like most of the time
Just needed to validate my existence here for personal reasons... Haha.
