    I have a Samsung 16:9 tv coming tomorrow. Here's my question: How far away from the set do I need to place my speakers? I have a pair of Paradigm Phantom V.2 tower speakers. I'm not sure if they are video shielded. Or does that even matter with an RPTV? I don't want to do anything that could possibly damage my new set. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!

    I have my unshielded mini monitors fairly close to the TV (about 1 foot) and everything is fine. I haven't had any problems at all. I don't have an widescreen TV though, just a regular 27".

    Did you get the 55 inch. I have the samsung 55 wide. I have my speakers right next to the tv and there is no problem.

    I think you should consider pulling your mains a bit in front of the screen. if you have them all equal then the imaging/soundstage will be affected since you will be getting reflections off the TV screen.

    I think that's right.

    Someone back me up here.

    This doesn't have to do with speaker placement, but rather with connections. I'm getting tired of unscrewing the posts to put the wires in. They have inputs for plugs. What would be a good plug to use and does this create any kind of an advantage in sound quality or just make it a little easier to use?
