Awesome,....I'm glad you like it.
A couple additional tips, I would experiment with a slight toe in, or pointing the L&R mains just a little toward the center. Don't move them from where they are, simply twist them slightly, so that they point inward a little bit. Typically, this gives the presentation more "air" (10-15khz), and also allows slightly better vocal/dialog intelligibility for two reasons. The increased 10khz and above, is due to the fact that typical loudspeakers "beam" their HF content at the highest frequencies. These frequencies add a wonderful measure of sparkle or air, and without them, the presentation is somewhat subdued. Also, the designers generally design the speaker to be listened to directly on axis, so the upper limit of the mid-woofer is also best experienced directly on axis, because it too "beams", or becomes more directional at it's upper range of response.
So if you angle them inward slightly, you can hear the response curve that the designer intended, and more of what the engineer of the recording intended as well. An added benefit of the inward angle, is less energy is directed to the adjacent sidewall boundaries, so less destructive acoustic interaction.
So all in all, just a little tweak here and there, can make all the difference in imaging and frequency response,... regardless of system size or complexity.
Thanks and good luck
btw; Next, you can concentrate on the center channel, and getting it up on top of the shelf,...and in front of the TV, get it more in line with the others and allow it to breathe
