Usually when users told me "close to the wall", I'd be worrying about bass reproduction, which could be a real issue in some cases. Reflection is a nice thing to have and it might not be an issue depending on an individual's taste. If it is an issue, it is much easier to fix - add a curtain, a towel, some foams that can absorb the reflection - these are cheap and easy to acquire. In your setup, bass should be OK and you can enjoy the BMR's "deep bass".Thats exactly right, it really is an issue if you make it one. I'm aware of my rooms limitations but surely my room shouldn't lessen my enjoyment of a potential BMR purchase?
Back to the bass, after Taiwan customers post their pictures while saying how good the bass is, I guess that might not be a problem after all, at least in the pictures you saw.
