As per the title, is anyone using these new heritage line speakers, what is your experience?

Particularly interested in positioning given the dual rear bass-reflex design. 

Thanks.

Had a pair for a few weeks. They were pretty good for the price - for which you got a lot of speaker.

I used them relatively close to the back wall and they didn’t seem to be too bloated in the bass.

Why did you move then on though?

I demo'd Linton heritage from a friend in my room, bass sounded too boomy. I settled for a pair of klh model 5. The rest of the frequency range sounded fine.

I felt the sound lacked a little "sophistication" and I also wanted something smaller in my lounge.
