Depends on your room size. My speakers are almost 10' apart as well as my listening distance.

Room is 22' X 12'X 8'
For 3 years I had the Avalons set 40" from woofer to woofer, about 5 ft. from back wall.
After getting advise from fellow audiophile, I placed speakers along side wall, about 2.5' from wall, 8 ft aprt from woofer to woofer, 6 feet from listening position. This set up allowed speakers to be free from side wall reflections. They have LOTS of space around them.
Magic: soundstage is wide and deep, presentation seems to pin-point instruments/musicians. It is the best I've heard in my room. Try it!
My room is 13 x 22 and my speakers are all the way in the corners, about one inch from each wall, ten inches high and angeled so they intersect a few feet in front of my listening chair. This is the set up Audio Note recommends and I really enjoy the wall of sound and dynamics the corner loading provides.
Oz, why do you say "you have no idea what your speakers sound like" to Distortion?
