i) Audio Research (which model?)
How do you place your speakers? toe in? distance from walls? distance from each other? listening position?
I have a rather small listening 'room' (3m (w) x 4.2m (L) x 4m (H) , my speakers are placed 1.2m and 0.8m from rear wall and side wall respectively, my speakers distance are approx. 1.5 m apart. My listening position is 1.2m from speaker with slight toe in. (usually, the listen position shall be 1.5m (golden triangle rule), however it was recommend by SF R&D engineer - Dr. Pablo to position 0.3 m closer towards speakers)
to be updated later...
Speaker cables, Speaker stands, Spikes, etc.
Just bought Chord Carnival Silver Plus single wire speaker cables last week replacing Van den Hul Goldwater, still under burn-in period, bass and treble sound superbly well, however, i find midrange (vocal) a little bit dull, perhaps, after burn-in, it would be improved.
Normal and cheap speaker stands with 80% sand-filled on its columns and it comes with speaker spikes. Speaker stands are placed on 0.5 inch marbles with anti-vibrapod.
Haven't though about this yet. Will do this last when everything is in place. Currently using the old Nordost Flatline Gold speaker cables : bi-wired.
Speakers standing on their own spikes.
The real stuff...
