    Yup - it is nice. Photos make it look a bit like a flying saucer (my wife says!) becuase of the lights and the raised circular platter area, but 'in person' the actuality looks even better. .... & it sounds good, too.

    Yep panels are something else arn't they. I found that having them so close to the walls spoiled things a little due to the reflections. I bought some egg box profile acoustic foam and placed it right behind the panels. This tidied things up really well. I did make some absorption panels a while a go which did help but not as much as the foam and its more descrete.

    Ah, now that is interesting. Thanks, Paul.

    I've just submitted an eBay offer for some.

    My one criticism of the sound at the moment is that it can get a bit forward once things get more than moderately loud if there is a lot of hi freq content - especially on 'full bore' orchestral. Do you think the egg box approach might help with this?

    I've got them firing across the width of my 12x20 ft room at the mo. I tried them out as far as 4 feet from the wall, but I prefer the slightly fuller sound of them at just under 3 feet.

    I've just received a 6m length of my fave Black Mamba speaker cable which will enable me to easily fire the CLSs down the length of the room without having to move all the kit around. That should easily allow me to have up to 6 feet behind the speakers. Will try that sometime soon.

    Ahhh, MartinLogan CLSs, lovely stuff. I believe this is/was their only non-hybrid model? They certainly need some space those, great sound once they're set up though.

    Funny you should say that I found that the foam reduced the highs a bit. This might be something to do with the rear reflections not hitting the wall and coming back slightly out out time.

    I've read somewhere that if you shoot down the room you should put some absorption on the side walls just behind the panels. So if you get some foam it will be useful whatever you do. TBH at the moment room treatment is making the largest changes and its the least expensive.
