Sal, sorry if it looked like we were being harsh on you about your system. And we know most folks have to balance audio performance with space and livability needs. We're merely impressed with your gear, and want you to get the most out of it.
Magnepans are not your typical speakers. Moving them away from the walls will really transform how they sound and Will let them truly perform to their potential. Maggies have a huge following, so there's plenty of resources online to guide you to a more proper setup for them.
Good luck, we can't wait to see the results - and more of your awesome pooch.
