These speakers are indeed AMAZING -- well named, for sure. Let me know if you need some coaching and advice on room placement. PM or otherwise. Agreed that they need some "space" behind and around them to really perform the best, and angled in a bit toward listening position can affect them in good ways for imaging. Buy your ears may be the best test of all, of course.
