Maybe its partly because its the type of sound ive been accustomed to these past years (rightly or wrongly) but I cannot get enough of that huge wall of sound  when up close and personal to the Sov's. Everything's so intimate & immense at the same time!!!!

Do you hug them sometimes? btw not judging...

As stated earlier the room boom that was heard when you approached the back of the room has now all but disappeared (win!) however im still gravitating towards a near field listening position for some reason contrary to conventional wisdom.

Weird huh.

 

 

 

Nah not #weird at all, how far away exactly are they when you say near field?

My speakers are hardly small and work well from around 2 5m.

Like you love that immersive wall

of sound!😉

# edit totally weirded by hugging! 🤔

Yeah im at approx 2.5m back with the speakers being about the same apart.  Physically having to move your head up and down to capture the height of the speakers at this distance is still a bit weird for me.

So now I can post a pic of yesterday's progress. bought some "1200mm x 2400mm acoustic pinboard" from Bunnings and laminated two 9mm pieces together using spray adhesive.

 

Has eliminated flutter echo  from the open end considerably and was well worthwhile for the money spent.

Spare amp (Ashly FTX 2001 Series3) arrived today from sunny California landed for about $300AU This was intended as a donor for spares but opening it up it appears unused. These are a bargain IMO for the sound quality Vs. $$ spent.
