Some of the members who wrote regarding speaker cable selection asked that I post a pic or two once I got things set up, so far so good !! I guess once I get 70 - 100 hrs they will sound even better !!

awesome set up. but those seats between the vantages (vantay?) might be taking near field listening too far.

Cool, but you may want to lighten up those shots when re-posting them in the members section.

I'm thinking the curtains stay closed most of the time to protect the speakers from UV/sun damage. Right?

Thanks for the tip on "digital photo" editing, I'm still a novice !! yes the curtains stay as open as you see them and close when showing a movie to create the correct "light absorbing" background.

You may want to experiment with speaker positioning. Distance from front wall, distance between the speakers, distance from the listening position, and toe-in being some of the main factors.

Presently have them set per manual; approx 31" from back wall and 42" from sides with slight toe-in (1/3 angle) to listening position. I figure to leave them there untill I get some hrs on them.

Question ?? have most of you gone with the spikes or not ? my flooring is carpet over concrete.

Thanks again !
