Hi Guys
You are quite right they are iQ5`s And they are really awsome. They have a really really large sound stage and are very transparent however the bass does not go quite as low as my old Q35`s did however the sub more then makes up for it ;D And of caurse the Harmon has lots of power to send the drivers on a nice little trip ;D

Antman, that's a very classy looking study :) I wish mine was that tidy, haha! Here is my loft:



Driver seat:



Somewhat better view of the room - it's quite small across (there is a lot of space behind the camera however):



The view from the couch - no prizes for guessing what's on:



B&W 603 S3s and a pair of Sennheiser HD-595s:



Good ol' receiver and player:



Please excuse the wiring mess - need to drill some holes and route all the video cables properly but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

Kay

Try some cushions on top of the couch top? or move couch 20cm forward. could clean up stereo a bit... Could also make walking a nightmare.... ;D Brilliant floorbounce absorbers!!! never thought about having decor acceptable floor bounce absorbers!!!
OK! I've had it! I don't give anymore Kharma. Kharma should work in mysterious ways...

Thanks guys :) I have something in mind for the rear wall - wrap the flag around some absorbent material and stick it on the wall right behind the couch. Although I have to say, I think I'm very lucky because the setup sounds pretty good in the current layout. Have no idea why but it works. Less toe in actually gives a better stereo image but the sweet spot shrinks down a *lot* so I prefer it this way. They would work better with more space around but for now - this is it.
