I am keeping the wallet happy with Four Roses Yellow Label myself at the moment - seems to work smoothly.The Glenlivet 12 (double oak) > Balvenie 12 > The Glenfiddich 12
Aberlour 16 can't be put into that list because it's a completely different scotch so I keep a bottle for its own sake.
(oh, and that's not "sah-kee", I haven't learned how to enjoy that particular spirit yet)
I know I have them shackled - room is a square footprint, and almost a cube (ceiling is not quite high enough) but will pay attention if there is a break in sound.enjoy your new speakers & schiit.
closer to the wall placement increases bass resonant peaks caused from boundary reflections. as the drivers' suspension compliance increases with break-in (10-50 hours???), the bass from the speakers will increase vs factory-new, so the final position may need to be moved back a bit (a few feet???) from the walls. YMMV.
So far haven't found something they can't play as well/better (I have a tin ear so hedging, I have not found something as good only better BUT YMMV) than the Klipsch I had so far - whether vocals (tried the single Sinatra album), metal (Sabaton), rock (AC/DC), opera (Der Ring), organ, Southern (Charlie Daniels), etc. I don't touch EDM/electronica/hip hop/rap/modern pop in the last 20 years/related so won't try to speak to them.
