Thanks to all the help I received on this forum, I am up and running with a Harmon Kardon 3490 and Lsi9 Bookshelf speakers.
They sound great!
I noticed however that I'm enjoying them positioned about 3 feet from the wall.
I had planned to have them on the bookshelf but bass seems to boomy.
Is it my imagination? I had previously never put any thought into where they would go, but seems there is more ambient, stage type sound when they are away from the wall a bit. Thoughts?
