Smart man. Nice post and welcome to the Carver forum. Sit back, grab a beer, relax and make yourself at home.
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

Nobody mentioned it or I just missed it but the manual also mentions adjusting the tilt by hanging a plumb bob from top of the ribbon side of the speaker. The distance from the bottom of the speaker to the tip of the plumb line should be 7". I always did it that way because it was such a bitch of a job messing with those adjustable feet on the stand. Always sounded alright to me. Those little feet were never the best anyway. The price you pay for getting great sound out of something so cheaply produced. Art

It was on the 1st page. From what Bob and it experimented with was ALLOT less then 7"

5 degrees is a little more "comfortable" if you have carpet. 2-3 on hardwood isn't too bad. Just be careful
