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.


Thank you for the comments, i will space them farther apart I'm new to this hobby so any advice is greatly appreciated.
ThankYou, Sal.


Looks like hes got a near field set up. They are toed in to about 12 feet from the system..

I could be wrong  


Is where the Maggies are pictured where they are actually listened to? Very wrong! A planar MUST be at a bare minimum 3' from the wall behind them (5' is better), and 3.7's need to be considerably further apart than are those pictured. The tweeter ribbons are only, what, 4' apart?! If they must be that close together, reverse left speaker for right, to get another coupla feet between tweeters.


Yes, that's a good pooch.
However, the placement of those big Maggies, crammed in a corner and up against the rear and side wall, seems awfully constrictive for dipole speakers that crave room to sing. A pair of good monitors on stands with a decent sub would probably yield better results (and take up less wall space).


That dog is awesome.
