While I have never owned planars, I prefer long wall placement. I suspect that your bass resonse will actualy improve. Having greater distance from side wall reflections may improve clarity. My only suggestion is to place some foam padding to aborb refletions from the wall behind the listening position. You can hide the foam with a decorative wool covering. Be generous with this room treatment and you may be able to sit further back and maintain a nice distance between speakers and the wall behind them. Good luck, you may be in for a pleasant surprise.
