Thank you very much, david_ten!! The Swarm’s first awards were four years ago, in 2015, so I have been fortunate that the concept apparently has a good shelf life. Credit to Earl Geddes, whose idea I’m using (with his permission). "Again, what abo...

Recommend speakers for a large living room
Thank you for providing so much information. I agree that the red circles make sense for your speaker locations. Apologies in advance for this: What I’m going to suggest is not something that you can buy off-the-shelf, to the best of my knowledge;...
