Standmount or wallmount?
I am going to upgrade the speakers (B&W LM1s) for my nearfield PC audio system. My budget is $350 to $600. So far, I'm looking at Focal, Wharfedale, Usher, Era, Mission, Monitor Audio, Accoustic Energy, KEF, PSB, Totem, Quad, B&W and Mordaunt-Short.
Some of these speakers are wall mountable. I have the LM1s on inexpensive 24" wood stands. If I go standmount I will have to buy some good stands which will break my budget with some of these speakers. Wall mounting will obviate the need to spend additional $$$ on stands.
As far as optimim placement for speakers, my intuition tells me standmount over wall mount. Do you agree?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated (including brands I should also look at).
