Yes. You definitely will need the Bottlehead. It sounds wonderful with the HD650!

I used a real camera this time instead of my Galaxy S4. These should look a bit better. These are a little less grainy and a bit clearer.

You'd enjoy your little BS-22s a lot more if your practice classic near-field positioning...enjoy!

Nice! I've never seen that picture before. I could see myself with a setup like that.

The pic was a joke but 100% serious about near-filed set-up with those monitors, if you listen at your desk.

I dont understand. I am using them near field. They are about 3.5 feet apart and I am sitting about 3.5 to 4 feet from them. From my understanding, this is near field.

When you are that close, positioning is critical. You should achieve the best sounding position without tilting down. If you need to tilt down like that, you will find better results lowering speakers. Also your shelf will cause reflections. I am sure it sounds good, but those little buggers are very capable and can benefit from careful placement.

They do sound very good as is. There are always going to be compromises and the height is going to be a compromise. From what I've read, tilting them down is not a bad thing. What I've read said that as long as they are on axis then its all good. The way I see it is that putting them up a few inches will give good height to the sound stage. They are as close to the edge of the shelf as can be, so reflections off of the shelf should also be minimal.

I was going to put some acoustic foam up against the back wall but read that the back wall shouldnt be an issue, which makes me believe that the shelf also shouldnt be a big concern.

They speakers arent as high as they look anyway. The tweeters are only about 6 inches above my ears.

Enjoy! Those are the one hidden gem one can find at Best Buy just hiding on the shelves next to the junk!

Oh I am enjoying them immensely. They sound great. They definitely are a hidden gem. I am very impressed with them. I could be happy with this as my only speaker setup, and I do also have others. I even use these for live tv on my laptop sometimes using the Optimum online live tv app.

+1 on the Pioneer BS22s. I used them as fronts until Amazon put the FS52 on sale for $60/each back in Dec. BS22s are my rears now. smily_headphones1.gif
