Also, you may experiment with toe-in as I find a slight toe-in to be beneficial. 

More in position for when I move. Not ideal right now

Your absolutely right, around 2m apart is ideal.. I’m purely restricted by the room atm but that will change. I ran my original pair as above and improved the imagery and tonal balance.. ive done that with the last three sets of speakers in this house to confirm that and I know there is more to come.. I will be moving when Brexit sorts itself out (housing market flat) down to the west coast of the uk and I know I will be looking for a house for my Hifi! Lol

Same as me, in a few years time, I intend going for a bungalow, so it's easy to smack about so I end up living in a Musicroom with accommodation,

Just got back from a road trip.. (thought I’d give my ears a rest lol) turned on the gramophone today and hearing the Harbeths do more than I remember. So easy to compare stuff and get lost in what isn’t important.

i have been offered a nice little Sugden a21a so sorting that out this week and will report how it all sounds again together

Absolutely incredible dynamics with this duo, so much current delivery from a modest output.. just as I remember from years ago but better.. bigger room? no idea

Forgot to say that I have been running them with simple van damme cables too and impressed but will try my TQ Black 2 next week and see what difference they will make..
