Hey- So I have been moving the Dunlavy V's around and almost have them right ( I think)- room is 17x28- I have them 3 1/2 feet from side wall- 10.5 apart and 5 feet to front wall- toed in so they are about facing each ear- 12 feet from chair- I get good pinpoint center imaging wide soundstage- But It still feels a little compressed-Not alot of Air- Pianos you can hear the attack but there is no decay on the notes-
Here is what I have at the moment- the speakers are off their bases as I am going to put them up on spikes so now they are on a wood floor over concrete-
I put RPG diffusers on the side walls
I have all Mcintosh equipment and am using Mogami Gold xlr interconnects and Duelund 12 guage wire for speaker wire for now-
So before I keep moving around these beasts I thought I would see what you gurus think I should do- Is it the cables?? remove the side panels etc- thanks so much for all the advice

Bebop86,

Are the speakers toed-in so you only see their front, don´t see their sides? At this position you will usually have the most air, you can decrease the toe in if it is too much.

I have not heard the cables you are using, so I have no idea how they sound. I recommend the Kubala Realization for speaker cable. For interconnects and power I recomment Echole Omnia, but those are expensive.

Regarding the Mcintosh, I don't know if they are able to drive the SC-V large drivers, maybe they are rolling off. If you can, try to audition a pair of Krell 750mcx or one Krell 700mcx (those are relatively cheap now), I know those match very well with the SC-V.

Cheers,

I heard them with Mark Levinson ML33h , they can compete with the demand of the speakers
