Nor do I, not close, but I have to live with it. I am curious about the equilateral triangle. How often are you at a live event where the music sources and you make such a thing?An equilateral triangle, if possible:
Whatever the distance is between the mains should be the distance from the main listening position to the the midpoint of the mains.
I don't quite have that for my Salon 2's but it's pretty close.
People talk about stereo imaging and soundstage when recordings are a forest of microphones mixed to achieve a desired effect. At live events the reflected sound off the proscenium, ceiling, or stage surrounds result in sounds apparently coming from much different locations than the players. And, unless you are close, minimal stereo effect. And when you are close there may be strong echoes off the loge and balcony faces if such exist.
Switching subjects do Salon 2 owners here listen with or without the grills? Has Revel said anything on this subject?
