Maggie 1.7i vs Marin Logan Electromotion ESL - Which is less critical for room placement?
I had 1.7s and really found that the placement concerns are way overblown. I think the most they was away from the front wall  2 feet and they sounded beautiful.

If cost was no factor, what system would you build as your main audio system?
