For the longest time I also towed my speakers in slightly, and was happy with the sound. But recently I went through an extensive listening session moving them in and out and all around as far as the cables would allow to see (once again) if the placement was optimal. To my surprise, placing them with no toe-in, firing straight ahead sounded best, with a similar enlargement of the soundstage which now truly extends beyond each speaker to the sides of the listening space. At the same time I placed the spikes I had underneath the speakers in some Herbies titanium gliders that isolated them from the floor instead of stabbing directly through the carpet to the concrete slab below. This also raised the speakers about 1 to 1.5 inches higher than before, and the total effect is a definite improvement in not only soundstage width but bass solidity and articulation too. It's the best my system has ever sounded -- I only wish I had more hours in a day to listen and enjoy.
