You need a bigger TV oldboy...at least 55 inches!
Nice set up you have there sir, and good review. I've had my 2020 sinse the middle of March, and I'm also very happy with mine. I had to cut the back out of my av unit to accomadate it, this also allows a decent air flow to circulate around the receiver. Just one little thing I noticed in your photo's, your speakers both face straight forward. Have you tried toe in them in a little on your seating position? I'm sure this will make a difference and enhance your sound.

I'm of exactly the same opinion bigboss and towards the end of the year I intend to add a nice shiny new 55 inch TV if funds allow
Being an open unit I don't have any air flow issues but I can certainly understand your issue, I couldn't be happier with the 2020 though.
As for the speaker layout despite what the Dali manual said about not toeing the speakers in this was the first thing I done when I got them but they just never sounded right. Dali are adamant that they fire straight ahead and I have to say after trying both ways they definitely sound far better firing straight into the room.
It's strange as no other speakers I have owned have sounded better this way so for once the promotional gumph may just be right and that with their wide dispersal sound they should fire forward into the room. I still find it odd though
Nice review Oldboy, good job m8. After that i'm even more of a mind to get that 3020 later on in the year. Would also like to upgrade my front speakers too, to the Ikon 6's or something even better. Looks like you have more room than me for a bigger & better TV as BB says go for it

Plenty of room around the spks. Guess it sounds excellent. Mine are a tad tight really. How wide is the room? Setee against back wall? Just damned nosey really. Pics good to paint .... Cheers

Thats quite interesting that the deli's recommend not toeing in, good that you tried them either way. Have you tried playing music through the 2020?
Just noticed too that yr Dalis have metal cones as do my MS's. No idea if thats relevant to any useful discussion/consideration but its Sunday and I'm just chillin with a Birthday present WDTVLive. Seems a solid little toy.
