Hi all,

I've had my eye on these speakers for a while, to use as main speakers in the living room. I was going to put them on bookshelves. I first found them online and then went to a local dealer and they sounded pretty awesome. What makes me hesitate (besides the price) is that they have phase inverters, and the ports are in the back, so they may not sound that great next to the wall. Not sure if they were meant to be used as bookshelf speakers. Some online reviewer mentioned that there are even special foam plugs available for the ports for using next to the wall (maybe even included with the speakers?). I wonder how strongly that affects the bass. Perhaps I'll just go to the dealer again and try it and waste even more time on this.

But if anyone has any thoughts about it, I'd like to hear them.

Also, could anyone recommend a small desktop amp for them? 8 Ohms, 30W+. I have an Audioengine N22, using it with other speakers and it seems to be fine. Can anyone suggest anything else?
