in my view, leaning a speaker front to back can be good when one wants to have the tweeter aimed exactly at the ear if one is sitting higher or lower than the tweeter height - compared to ear height.

I've been struggling to position my M80's to my liking. I need to give this a shot.

Beat me to it, I was going to say this too! 1964 and earlier quarters were mostly silver, after 1964, they used "coppernickel" or something like that!

Pretty soon there will be a "heads up" vs "heads down" discussion as to what is better, then of course there will be "Canadian vs US" quarters . . . <grin!>

We all know that Canadian sound is more neutral.

Speaking of pre-1964 silver coins, I found a bunch of coins at my grandma's house when I was helping move her from California to Oklahoma. These are the ones with dates up to 1900 (movie link). There are quite a few more.

The back story on the collection is that my grandma worked for Bank of America as a cash handler in the vault in the 1960s. Her boss let her trade out any currency she wanted to collect with something of equal face value. Pretty sweet deal! smile

I put new fiber plugs underneath our coffee table.
Now it doesn't tip to one corner as much.
