Hello...after lurking for several months I'm posting my first question. I'm ready to build my first home theater. I've pretty much settled on a Denon 1802. Now for speakers...I'm considering seriously the nOrh 4.0s for a 5.1 setup paired with a Adire Rava sub. The challenging part is that I live in a 1 bedroom apartment with a fairly small living room. It's about 12' x 15' and I have to place the couch along the long wall. My TV and HT setup will be against the opposite long wall directly in front of the fireplace. I am pretty challenged for depth. I'm concerned about various nOrh owners I've read about here and at Harmonic Discord who suggest the nOrh's sound best when placed at leat 9" from the wall. I'm pretty strapped for depth (have only about 5-6 feet between couch and TV) so I can't afford to move the speakers far from the wall. Will the nOrh's really improve that much with distance from the wall such that I am better off with more conventional speakers if I have to place close to the wall? Any nOrh owner's comments?
