Thank you, Gan.
Perhaps, I need a dedicated room too. As you can see, my left speaker places in a tight conner and between the 2 sofas. Hope to show you more next time. Happy listening!

Humble,are you serious.That is more like a demo room.

Thanks kraiker. It is my dedicted listening room/Ht room, with bulk of the usage for two channel stereo, a task that the Shl5 executes superlatively.

Thanks for sharing..btw your right speaker appear too close to the corner and side wall. Do you have any issues with positioning the speakers? There's a guide for setting up the speakers that comes with the speakers.

after years of experience, SHL5 must be position away from walls and corners to sound good. no matter how good it is fine-tuned, there is no denial that the first principle of speaker placement rules. always!

Thanks Jmhod - Actually the photos are not very clear. Both the speakers are positioned with their front baffle at 36" from the rear wall and 26" from the side wall. Distance between the speakers ctr. to ctr. is 8', slightly toed into my listening position which is 9' away. Room size is small, only 14' x 12' x 9' with a drop ceiling of armstrong tiles. There are 2 echo buster panels on the wall behind the speakers and 6 GIK acoustics 244 panels, 4 in the room corners acting as bass traps and 2 at the side walls acting at the first reflection points. Floor is carpeted wall to wall with a large rug as well. I experimented with 4-5 settings from the rear and side walls till I arrived at this setting. I had them out as far as 4' from rear walls and 28" from side walls. Now the speakers are sounding awesome with the soundstage depth easily perceived at 6-8' and laser sharp imaging. I attached 2 more pics. from different angles - excuse my photography skills.

Thanks coredump, really appreciated. I rely on the valuable experience/advice of the esteemed members here as I really am just a novice and amazed at all the systems and collective knowledge displayed here. It is very humbling, and using all this information, I hope to create a little bit of that magic in my setup as well. I know I barely scratched the surface with my modest equipment & setup skills but my sincere hope is to keep improving. Someday, hopefully in this lifetime, I aspire to a setup like teddyboy's or Jmohd's perhaps.

The chair veneer is exactly the same as your cabinet across.

Hi, looking at the chair head rest it seems a little low. When seated ear level to be in line with the tweeter.

Hi kraiker, thanks for the comments
It is actually a copy of an Eames chair, from the 70's, inherited from my parents a few years ago. It was originally black vinyl which eventually fell apart. I had it reupholstered recently in a yellow cream colour leather (outdoor leather for toughness and dog resistence). The grain of the cabinet and chair are a match by coincidence as the cabinet is a rosewood and the chair is more cherry (I think). Playing with the picture in Aperture allowed me to manipulate the colours a bit). The Camera is a Canon 50D dSLR with a 24-100 macro yoom lens, tripod mounted using a remote release...whew.
Hi Jmohd, the head rest is actually at the level of the neck, so my ears are more in line with the tweeters...except when I slouch...

Hi Macjager, is that the Martini glass Ella Fitzgerald is going to try to shatter :-)
