After much heavy breathing, carrying the Neat Acoustics MF9s up two flights of stairs, they are now in place and running in.
They seem to work pretty well in roughly the same position as the ES30s, which is about 15cm closer to the back wall and about 20cm closer to the side walls than the MF7s.
The bass in this spot is really detailed and surprisingly dry: when the music doesn’t deliver bass there isn’t any. I must have hit just the right spot in the room.
It’s probably going to take a couple of weeks for everything to truly settle before I can do the final moving around but so far very pleased.
I’m really enjoying listening to music on these and that’s only after a few hours of running in.
