I am a firm believer once you reach a solid hardware level, imo you are well above that baseline, I'm getting closer, the room and set-up are the key. My room basics seem fundamentally good. So the variable is placement and listening position. Due to room geometry, 3 large entries: kitchen, main, back patio. Those 3 pretty much determine the rest. It'll be fun playing around, searching for the optimum. I like being a bit further away, 12' or so. I need that distance due to the girth of my head. It generates gravity and has an atmosphere. Too close and the speakers may pinch my head.
