Make Magnepan LRS Better

Who is using Magna Riser and VPE LDW model 1?  Magna Riser is not expensive stand.  And LDW is $1495 a pair.
I’d say the LRS are a great pair of speakers for $650.00. Not sure making them a $2500.00 speaker is a good value. Why not get the 1.7i’s for the same price? 
Experiment both std lean back position vs straight up? I personally prefer the std lean back position with VPI bricks sitting on the legs in the back and tweeters on outside. Also replace the awful jumper. Ymmv
You need to get your ear at the same height as the center of the panel. So you must have low furniture, be height challenged, or get tall stands. All three methods work.
