Calling all Legacy Aeris owners

If you have experience with these speakers please answer this..... How directional are Aeris? How big or small is the sweet spot with them. At least one reviewer said they had a small sweet spot with poor off axis sound, but others have stated the opposite. Your thoughts ??
I have not reviewed the Aeris, but have reviewed the V, Valor, Whisper (various versions) Focus, Focus SE, all found at  

Legacy uses their large form factor, large midrange, methods in the Aeris. Imo, there would have to be some anomaly at work to draw such a conclusion, or if someone is a panel fan I can see them comparatively discussing the sweet spot as small in comparison. 

I have heard Aeris several times at shows and it never had small sweet spot or poor off-axis sound. Roger Sanders' speakers are poor off-axis, and he lines up chairs like a runway in demos. Legacy places several chairs in a big square for listening. They are not afraid to have someone sit off-axis, and you can stand up around the Aeris and not have the sound collapse. 

Now, Bill Dudleston prefers to cross the speakers before the listener, whereas I think that does unacceptable (to me) things to the soundstage and center image. I am not about to tell a man of his pedigree he's wrong, but I prefer a more traditional setup. If the reviewer was using the Legacy preferred placement, then that likely accounts for a lot of the description. 
So, something as simple as positioning could be behind the different descriptions of such things. 

As I have not used the Aeris in my home I will refrain from further comment.  :) 
The Aeris have an incredible sweet spot! I've been able to move all around in the room and it is a very natural sweet spot. The whole top section (10" plus 8" drivers) is open baffle which helps form a wide and natural center fill between the speakers. Stereo imaging extends left and right, far beyond the speakers (and the boundaries of the room!)

You know how at a live show, say of an acoustic trio, you can stand up and walk around the room, and still pinpoint where each instrument is, but there isn't any image collapse as you move around? That's what these Legacy's do. When you move left, the singer is still anchored center between the speakers, and the corresponding panned instruments maintain their position and size.

These speakers also provide the impact required to convincingly do full scale dynamics right, while maintaining the imaging.
They just sound "right". Very, very right.
Jim we are displaying Aeris dealers, and they fill up a room beautifully. 

They throw a gigantic soundstage with remarkable bass a very full and rich midrange and overall excellent resolution.

The package of Wavelet plus Aeris for the price is unbeatable just add a good amp or amps.

If you are worried about a narrow sweat spot they throw a big image.

I've got a pair and the comments above echo what I would say. The only thing I would add is that depending on how far you are seated from them, there can be some variance regarding the treble section because of the height of the AMT. The further away you sit, the better the drivers integrate. If you sit near field, you'll want to pay attention to you seat height as the AMT is fairly tall on them.
A simple fix for the seat height issue is to put a pair of coasters, or similar about 1/4" thick, under the backs of each speaker. This will tilt the baffle slightly forward, and you will find the entire presentation is cleaned up and benefitted holistically. The degree to which the sound is benefitted is fairly shocking. I do this always with the Whisper. I will not set up this speaker without putting the "shims" under the back. I suggest owners work both with the toe in and baffle slope to achieve their ideal dependent upon seat position. However, I sit approx. 12' away from the speakers (not what I would call near field), and the benefit of the baffle slope adjustment is profound. 

BTW, I also do this same adjustment with big panel speakers such as the Kingsound King III electrostatic.  

I am aware that theoretically all necessary adjustments should be able to be handled by the Wavelet, that this slightly alters the parameters set in the Wavelet, and that this will cause a slight diminishment in the scale and height of the soundstage, but the trade off in terms of superior performance in other parameters is more than worth it to me. If anyone would like to suggest that my method is wrong, or that standard use is better, I'm not interested in debating my methods.
