    I've noted the Jamo's shine when they are around 20 inches from the back wall. That being the case, do you think that if they are out in the room with the rear of the speakers at the point where the...

    I just did a test with my Jamo C601 bookshelf speakers. Stuffed up the rear ports with foam. Really messed with the image and overall sound. Bass became smaller too. Definitely not the answer.

    I was thinking of placing the equipment in front of the fireplace and then the speakers to the side of the recessed area just about flush with the fireplace where it ends. Won't be using the...

    Yes, two big windows. One on the wall to the left of that picture and then one directly facing that fireplace about 13 feet across the room.

    Actually I will have to experiment with the gear and...

    Yes, I've heard good things about these speakers. But I will have to see if they have a rear port first.

    Might want to consider this. I use it and am very happy with it. Pretty neutral yet is very detailed and won't mute the highs in your music.

    I was thinking that that the area that is recessed on both sides (roughly 4 foot by 15 to 20 inches) would create havoc for the acoustics in the room. With a rear firing port I would think which...

    Looked into the Craigslist idea. Nothing of note that has the sound that I live in my region. Went back a few months too.

    Yes, I believe you are correct. I know that the LSIM 703 is essentially the right speaker to purchase. What I may do is buy something cheap for now and get by with it until I can afford to buy the...

    Looked and listened to speakers today

    Went to the local dealer for Polk here (not Best Buy but a local store) and I was shocked to find he didn't even carry the latest speakers from Polk. I listened to the RTI 6 which the owner said was...

    What do you dislike about them? If they act like a 6 ohm then it should be able to work with the amp I have.
