I'm really strictly 2 channel, mostly habit? Pre divorce I had built a listening room with dedicated power - that's probably the most amazing single difference I've made. Typically with well recorded material there was no boundary to the sound, you'd literally hear things off to the sides and behind you. I'm not sure I'll be able to achieve this again.\n\nYou will. I've achieved that in my living room and it's not the most ideal space for good sound. Just do the homework. Speaker position and toe in has a lot to do with the soundstage and imaging you indirectly reference in this quote. I really do think the TFEs would be nice speakers for you in a 2 channel setup. It's going to be very hard to beat them at that price. We'd probably have to add another zero to do it.
