One other comment, is it just me, or has AH become a home for some reviewers with weird listening room set-ups? As with the Legacy Focus SE review, where the reviewer was also very positive about the speaker, the pictured in-room set-up is rather weird. Matthew's listening room is 25x11, the L800s are placed up against the front wall next to a projector screen, nearly in the corners, but on each side, very near the speaker, there's a thick room treatment panel that will have some unknown effects on how the speakers sound in the room.\n\n\nthat is also a false wall. They were actually 3 feet from the front wall. However Polk says they sound best up against a wall, not pulled out. The speakers actually work best in a position that normally is a huge compromise for most speakers. They work best up against a wall and very close together.
