    Vinni Rossi - Harbeth Room at RMAF question

    I was just watching several Video Reviews on Youtube and noticed in the VR-Harbeth room, the 40.1s were Toed In on an extreme angle. Can anyone explain why they were setup that way?

    That was a beautiful combo go sound. The new Pre and Monos look cool too.

    To minimize room boom. It sounded great.

    Was there a smaller sweet spot in the apex or did it still throw a wide sound?3

    And thanks

    There was a segment on the Gryphon room, WOW

    Yes the Gryphon room was “wow”. I get to hear that daily! The Gryphon system oozes musicality and toe tapping enjoyment.

    The Harbeth’s sounded terrific. Sweet spot wise, I would say three chairs across the center were all excellent.

    Shadow, you need a pair of Harbeths! I would love a pair and love their sound but I showed them to the wife and she nixed that idea. She is glad that I switched to PSB's over my Magnepans.

    Larry,

    That setup or the VR Integrated is on my short list, not sure if I want such large stand mounts tho.

    I would love to have VR gear and Harbeths. I heard his gear at Axpona 3 years ago. One of the top 3 rooms. I may have to settle for just the VR gear when I down size in a few years. I bet it would pair well with my PSB T3's which have a somewhat similar sound as the Harbeths but with more bass.
