Agreed. Speakers with a narrow baffle will always work better like that but speakers with a wider baffle or front don’t. Like my Harbeths. I find they image better and disperse the sound more evenly.BTW I have my Concept 30s toed in to face me , so I can't see the sides , I had my ProAc Studio monitors like that , works for me .
The 3030i’s I have definitely prefer some toe in.
