Thanks for pointing to pisitioning. It looks a little that in this setup, as much as you want to find whose fault it is, only option that remains to explain the lack of imaging is Positioning. It is a little like saying ‚build a new house that suits the speakers‘ Although it’s relatively inexpensive speakers I was hoping that at least half of what’s been so ravingly is true. As I said I did place them around as per what is recommended and it doesn’t have much effect. Still same speakers and same sound coming out pf those marketing stunts. I also do not quiet believe that changing the speaker will not have much effect in a highly snobbishly priced market. Truly Good speakers sound is privileged to only those who are willing to reach deep - i get that so recommendations please based on personal experience. I actually do not remember any forum opinion or review mentioning to have tried Brio R with q3020. Yes there was one thread with someone who tried 3050 with Rega Brio R and found it alright I think. NAD 3020 btw has a D amp and less power btw do should be worse ? To actually think it’s the amp is last resort. Bottom line is, one shouldn’t buy a product that works sort of acceptably in only one perfect position and only in suitable conditions. If you have to buy a new house to make a 200 euro product sound OK then that product is definitely a total failure and shouldn’t be sold as such. I can see that speaker brands having a sweet time getting their ultra sweet general reviews and commenting on people‘s questions directly within forums to avoid inadequate advice (such as return the speakers !) what a sweet life it is for speaker manufacturers if you can always blame the performance of your product on exterior influences. Room, weather, mood, taste or if that’s not helping - hey backup joker - we can always blame it on inferior equipment around the speakers and the good thing it is mostly a unique setup where we can always blame those Rega amateurs for example with their questionable A/B amp (one suggested solution was to get a NAD D amp instead ??) you turn to another opinion posted previously on other threads dooming that same NAD amp with someone saying, you must get an A/B amp such as Brio R if you want that good sound .. done ! I will look into any speaker recommendation based on personal experience (not press). It is a highly snobbish market where no matter how you try good sound isn’t in for around 200 euros - and thatsq Otherwise what’s the point having 10000 euro speakers right ? Wouldn’t be fair to those guys spending 5 digit numbers on their speakers to have a slightly better sound than our top budget audiophile ace q3020 (compared to Spendors by the developer who should cut down on chemical sublements for that matter) !
