Spotify is clearer than vinyl although I think it could still be clearer. The issue with pulling out the speakers is id then be sitting 2-3’ away. The amp and turntable are along the wall where the guitar in the photo is placed.\n\nI think I need to find another side of the space to put the speakers, wall mount them perhaps. It’s just not making any sense where they are so far. Sigh.Thanks for doing all that homework I gave you :). I don't think I have anymore ready ideas. If I recall correctly, the B&W 602 speakers I heard some years ago may have had a "somewhat flabby sounding bass", to use highly technical language ;). But my memory might be wrong on that.\n\nDon't despair, this can be sorted out. Write all this out as clearly as you can and see what Jim Salk thinks. He actually likes puzzles like this. He may have completely different suggestions than I had.\n\nGood luck.
