I am having a problem deciding on how far away I should sit from my tv. THX recommends a minimum of a 26 degree (or is it percent) viewing angle. Which means (according to a calculator for viewing distances) I should sit 4-5 ft away from my 32 inch 4:3 aspect ratio direct view TV. However, my speakers are supposed to be a miminum of 6ft away, and the recommened listening distance as stated by the speaker company is 1.5x the distance between the speakers, which is 9ft. How should I reconcile these two highly divergent recommendations, and if I have to lean towards one rather than the other which one should I follow? Thanks for any comments.
