I cannot wait to read what the final outcome is going to sound like.

Just one correction.....I am the speaker whisperer

Haha Douglas, prove it!
Come over and make the final adjustments...

Flemming, thank you.
The 'great' photos come from my iPhone though...

I'll ask Meta to take some pics next time.
But I was happy she prepared us some tasty food.

Very useful. Thank you.

I've had my system "tuned / calibrated" professionally. And then had a "tune up" done several years later. I've since added some components, furnishings, draperies, etc.

So, may be time for another tune up.

You've got me thinking now

Thank you for sharing Bart.
Intersting how positioning and accoustic components can improve the sound in a living room.

I look forward to read the next step for you. Nice pictures as always ;-)

Colin, Finn, Mahalo, thank you.

Mahalo, yes, each time you change something it has impact.
I just rerun the calibration of the Marantz; the surround sound also changed after the repositioning of the speakers.
Ben will make further adjustments after the placement of the acoustic treatment.

Colin, I honestly wasn't aware that our Vivids were so sensitive to positioning.
