Thank you very much, hey presto it works!
See, easy isn't it?
No signature worth mentioning...
Yep simple, many thanks again for your help much appreciated.
If the photos are approximately from the sofa then this looks pretty ideal to me. Wouldn't want them closer and you can't have further apart due to furniture anyway. I would experiment with toe in as they look to be firing parallel with the walls at the moment.

No the photos are from behind the sofa as it was the best way to get a shot of reasonable quality that got all the speakers into the photo, the way they are at the moment is the Dolby method so 3 feet from the centre point of the room to the centre point of the speaker, it sounds nice i must admit.
As for toe in the speakers are designed to be in this configuration according to Dali and have a wide dispersion and when i did start to experiment with toe in i just couldn't get a sweet spot, when the new tv is in situ tomorrow i will experiment further over the weekend with toe in and see if it improves the soundfield or not.
Many thanks for your help BenLaw, much appreciated.
If your seat is slightly in front of the camera then it looks pretty much perfect. Fair enough re toe in. I tend to have mine a little less toed in for movies than for stereo and the soundstage broadens the straighter they are, so if straight works for you that's what matters
Have you experimented with placing your subwoofer in other areas of the room to determine where it sounds best?

My understanding was that the left speaker, the right speaker and the listening position should form an equilateral triangle.
By the way, do you have a soft spot for Clare Balding?

No, but I do have a bald spot for Clare Softing.
She's very forgiving of that.
She likes to rub it for good luck.
No i certainly don't have a soft spot for Clare Balding, i think she is by far the weakest link in the BBC presenting team at the olympics hense why i chose to do something else at the time she was on, I just find her dull and boring to listen to and watch.
Back to the subject in hand...the front speakers very nearly form an equalateral triangle but as they are now in the Dolby config they are each 3 feet away from the centre speaker which throws out the triangle slightly but only by 4-5 degrees which is minimal really. As they are situated now sounds best to my ears so they are staying in the Dolby config from now on.

Which is the only thing that really matters!
