Take a close look at the two photos. Can you tell why one will have a better, larger soundstage and be a little more fun for movies ?
If you didn't see it, we're not surprised. It's a small change but makes a noticeable improvement in sound quality. Ideally the front left and right should be spread out the same number of feet as you are seated back from the TV. In this room that looks to be around 12 feet apart.
Our customer sent us some room photos and we suggested he spread his fronts out a bit wider if possible. He was in the middle of sending these pics for the blog and so we got a 'before and after' series of pics. Now do you see the difference ?
The ORBs in one photo are further apart and closer to ideal positioning for maximum soundstage performance.
