It's been a few years since I've posted here (been 'lurking' ever since though!)

Back then I had my KEF 3005SE system shoehorned into my parents' less-than-ideal corner lounge setup - http://www.whathifi.com/forum/your-system/my-new-kefs

Fast-forward 3 and a half years and I'm finally out on my own, and have just set everything up in (what appears to me to be) a far better arrangement:

Will take some more pics of the surrounds and the room itself shortly, but suffice to say now that the speakers are resaonably placed, surround steering has improved 1000%! And I still love these speakers as much as I ever did!
