Thanks for asking. I have spent in excess of 40 hours moving the T-Refs into position. Upgraded from the T1s in July. After break-in and nearly 40 hours of adjustments I thought I had them in place…but I was always missing something. although they sounded amazing out of the box. I had to lean forward, if you will, to get in the bubble of sweetness. Then I discovered that the right speaker needed to be placed about 3/4" further back than the left speaker. Makes no sense, but after this adjustment…it popped. And, I am truly astonished by the sound, the musicality! When you fire it up, and put on a track, lower the lights, and sit back…it literally sounds like the my room has been transformed. It’s like the air in the room changes and you are present at where the recording took place. Simply magical. Long winded answer, but in short, I hear what you are saying…I’ve had these puppies in every conceivable position for them to sound their very best with two channel audio and have settled on the present situation. Not sure why it’s like this (kind of goes against best practices), but to my ears…this is the spot! Cheers!
