    Ive not found that with the Summits, the curved panel gives very good lateral dispersion to my ears.

    Long fancied M-Ls, but that 30 degree sweet-spot angle is a bit on the narrow side, although I listen some 4+ meters away, so may not be so bad. The Quad ESLs, or at least the big ones, have a very wide sweet-spot (as I imagine do Maggies). The soundstaging and imaging hardly varies across my 7' sofa.. Can't see why height is a prob., as 2905s and the later 2912s are as tall as other big panel spkrs. They don't necessitate muscle amps either.

    Yes, Maggies, are more generous in terms of sweetspot.
    However...... Don't sweat too much. Both speakers sound frikkin ace at almost any angle. Sure, there's a sweetspot.... But you will enjoy these speakers anywhere on your sofa

    thats a good question . well the summit x had adjustable knobs on the back so you could adjust the bass etc . I also used them with a pretty expensive MSB amp which i think the rrp now would be about 35k . the wall of sound and realism was stunning and the bass was very very impressive . Now I used the Taus [ rfc] in a different room so not quite able to compare directly . They did have a very similar wall of sound with a stunning soundstage , extremely resolving and holographic . Nowhere near the crushing bass that the ml could deliver if needed but then i had them on track audio stands and i didnt want bass in a loft room adjacent neighbours bedroom
