Hi everyone, I am new to the forum and Salk speakers. I just placed an order for a pair of Silk AT monitors. Like many of you, I have been in the audio addiction for a long time, trying numerous brands of equipment and searching for a live sound. My question to you is about placement. I spent some time looking through the Salk speakers in members homes. Some great pictures of awesome rooms by the way. I see where many are using a family room or living room. Some are able to place speakers ideally, well off the back wall and side walls. I am sure that is ideal for performance. But from the pics, it's seems like the majority are using family room settings and speakers are placed very close to the back walls and side walls. I get it, we have to adapt to what we have to work with. Also what the wife will let us get away with. Yes, finally to my question. How do your speakers sound and perform with less than ideal placement?
