Sorry if you have been asked before.

Looking at your website those speakers are pictured very close together - was that for photo purposes or is that their permanent position ? With that distance and the toe-in it just looks very different to any positional arrangement I've had. Thought maybe the arrangement was to show off the carpet at it's best

By the way how are you getting on with the Prima Luna(s). I had a demo a couple of months ago and I'm toying with the idea myself .......

Thats an often asked question they are not as close as my shrunk picture makes them look but there is a lot of toe in

they are in fact 1.7 meters apart if you look at a few pictures on my site the gap looks more ? normal where B&W 804 are in use

in the last few weeks I have been visited by over half a dozen hi fi dealers all comment on toe in but no one has every said anything about the distance apart

but given at the other end of the room is just one nice chair for me :cool:its really a perfect set up the image is the some of the best you can get

the sound quality is very good a great mid and a bass to die for

put 1812 overture on the other day for one of the guys from rochester hi fi and when it got to the cannons he could feel it and was supprised given room size there was no boom but just plenty of controlled low bass

people really need to try moving speakers around do not worry what they look like listen to the sound

way I see it if that guy can fit westminsters into a gap where I have turnberrys i could fit them

have you seen the picture of them speakers that guy has? in hi fi news

you are only shown one speaker as I suspect to see both it would look even stranger than mine look

Its hard enough getting Turnberrys in, looking at the pictures in the mag, they seem to go to great lengths to make it look an easy fit. For example in one picture you see him and one speaker. In the other picture the picture is taken from one side and in a way it makes the gap look bigger

my room is as wide as his look at the picture on my web site looks very cramped
