proper Tannoy Canterbury room set up

so I have a set of Tannoy Canterbury GR on the way to live in my dedicated 14'X18' music theatre. The system in located on the 14' wall. Previously Quad 988 esl have lived here, which sat out about 4 foot off the front wall and 2 1/2 foot off the sides, with toe in toward center. To start off with, should I position the Tannoy the same? or not? Someone told me that Tannoy is designed to go back-right-up to the front wall - I have not heard this from any other, so I wonder if it is true or not? Would love to get instruction and hear what other Canterbury users are doing with their room layout.
thank you in advance for thoughtful input.
Picked up some custom made Sablon speaker cable with ground wire, from Mark Cole. Absolutely love the cable. As far as speaker cable goes, as long as I have the Tannoy, I can't see changing these unless Sablon has an ungrade. This cable offers everything my Stealth V10 did, and more.......better separation and soundstage, drums more real, cymbals and voice are wonderful.
I have set my Canterburys 1m from the wall, slightly turned in and pointing slightly down. Distance from the rear wall was chosen because of the bass and room interaction. I tried their ST200 and it was a big upgrade on the SE. The newer GR has a better top end but i am sure the super tweeter would still improve them.It may also cure the need to raise them too. Has anyone tried? I bi-wire mine although this is because of my experiance with other speakers and not the Tannoys. I found that setting up these speakers were a little special. Because they are so wide they seem to create their own back wall and dont act the same way as normal speakers.Love them!!
I elevated my Canterburys not for tweeter performance, but for overall Dynamics, Presence and Tone - greater musical involvement.

They sound less boxy and more like music. IMO, of course.

FWIW - most recently I had a client listen during a RoomPlay Reference session and he (as others have also done) pronounced it the best sound he ever heard in over 35 years of listening. His speakers cost more than my entire system...
