Just my 2 cents.
Yes I just read a discussion about lifting the Adams up and spacing them apart further. I need a new desk or speaker stands before I could even attempt this.

I still don't think it's going to help mixing and translation. The mid range is lacking and reverb trails are poor. It's also hard to notice changes when applying compression or saturation. They just aren't very true or revealing to me.

Thanks for your reply
