Thanks for the review Ed, any chance you might be getting some Twenty5 23's in for review?
I've had to discount stand mounts as with my cats they would probably end up on the floor...
All listening was undertaken in a room where the rear wall is 30-35cm from the back of my head. It should be fine.Regarding placement, the reviewer says that the speakers should be toed in so they cross a meter and a half behind the listener and that they are not sensitive to rear and side walls, however, would this be true of the wall behind the listener?
I am considering the nice small floor standing twenty5.23s but positioning is a real worry.
In my case I have to listen across the short side of the room, I suspect that this speaker design would not really be suitable :-(
