    Cool Re: Speaker Positioning (Toe-Out)!?!

    FWIW,

    Since my January report on "toeing-out" the Sierra NrT's, I did experience another substantial and definitive improvement in my 2-channel capability when I replaced standard RCA interconnects with a CD high resolution RCA set. With these, have gained even more openness, clarity and even further high frequency extension. Thus, re-hearing details and nuances in all of my recordings that I hadn't before!!

    In March, took the next logical step and received some GIK 2A Alpha AbFusers 2ft square x 2" deep panel room treatments (absorber & diffusor). However after 2 weeks, no matter where I tried (listening wall, side walls, setup wall), I could not "improve" the live acoustics of my listening room. Primarily, I lost some focus, air and openness in the upper midrange and lower treble regions. Placement behind the Sierra's were the least intrusive to the stereo holographic presentation, but nevertheless a detraction that did nothing to "improve" the live 3D experience, the wide and deep soundstage and strong center focus that my small intimate listening room offers!

    Thumbs up Re: Speaker Positioning (Toe-Out)!?!

    With about 2 months of break in time on the new interconnects (orchestral, pipe organ, choral, vocal, piano, night club R&B and jazz genres), the soundstage has grown in size, mid-bass speed, punch and tonality has improved, pinpoint imaging focus has tightened and even dynamics have increased!

    Still have the Sierra-1 NrT's toed-out 5 degrees, the power amp passing on the 70hz high pass signal from the pre-amp and have finally settled on optimum room placements. Seems these on-going incremental changes (High Pass, Toe-Out, High Res Interconnect, Room Placement) have really combined to transform the full potential of the "Live Music Delivery" that the AA Sierra-1 NrT Monitors are capable of in a 2.1 stereo presentation!
