Speaker angle app.

I too have wrenched about speaker placement. So is it just me or is this app a life-saver ? 

http://hifipig.com/speaker-angle-app-2/

Available for Android and iPhone. Sorry if this reads like SPAM, but it isnt. I think this might help others so I thought I would share.

RE: Speaker angle app.

It does make me wonder somewhat how we have managed all these years without it. :grin:

RE: Speaker angle app.

Well this is a review lifted off the Play Store....

"Piece of cake Had been messing around for ages with a protractor and a compass - 99c later and my speakers are toed-in perfectly at the recommended 30-degrees. The stereo imaging is perfect - something I could have achieved in time, but definitely worth 99c to save an hour of trial and error!"

Seriously though, well spotted. I am sure quite a few people will find it to be of some use. Anything to assist tweakers is always good.
