Possibly a distorting of perspective by the camera - but only Mac can answer for sure.

They're definitely not facing each other.  I'd say the corner of the back and side wall is central to each speaker if you know what I mean.

Anyway, it works.

That sounds as if they are "crossing" in front of you, rather than behind you - but if it works, that's all that matters.

It will be interesting to see how Alan Shaw sets them up.

Indeed, I was thinking just that.

As my sofa is right against the back wall, I guess it wouldn't work from behind me.

Having recently sold my SLH5+ 's (too big for the room), I've just invested in some P3ESR's (standard not 40th/XD version)

Can't wait to see how they fare against my Stirling LS3/5a V2's

Shame about the SHL5+, congrats on the P3's though.

Harbeth contacted me today to ask if I would be happy with Walnut finish and of course I said that would be perfect... thought it would be a bit churlish to get picky considering they will be the Index model.

No lead time though, doubt they will be ready before Christmas.

Maybe that’s why they DID phone you. Walnut might be the reason why you might not have to wait too long.

Wanna ask you guys about how to remove light nicks and scuff marks. My little P3ESR got some here and there. Basically, whatever sealant Harbeth uses was removed thus exposing the wood.

Am thinking of bees wax polish. Any advise? I dare not try oil based polish in case it ‘stains’ and creates a different hue.

I used beeswax polish on an older pair, a limited improvement though it certainly didn't make things worse. Very small amounts on the areas you want to tackle seemed best. It was a spray one, don't know if that makes any difference. Good luck !

I've just got my new P3ESR's (one of the last) and first impressions are positive, but the midrange seems quite shut in and recessed at the moment. Does that warm up and open out as the speakers run in ?
