Initial monitor placement before REW

Hi guys,
I took delivery of my new monitors today and will finally be ready to start taking measurements with REW once my monitor stands arrive.
The ATC manual states that they should be positioned 1m in from left and right walls, and 2m from back wall to start with. My room is big enough to try this placement, but if I'm to maintain an equilateral triangle it'll mean my listening position is nearer the wall facing the monitors, and nowhere near the 38% position.
I know the 38% position is not a rule set in stone, I was just wondering how I should initially proceed. The monitors are midfields btw, ATC SCM50 ASL Pro.

I would go with what they recommend, test the room then start to move things around. Yes 38% if really just a starting point but what works for you room is what you should do. Only testing will tell you that.

Thx Jens & Glenn,

As ever your response is much appreciated!

Jens, I've not got time to look at the the thread you've linked to right now, but I'll study it closely over the weekend.
