I recently received my 1723 S Monitors and am driving them with a Parasound Halo integrated amp. I listen to a mix of music types as well as watch movies through them. There is a lot to like about these speakers. However, there’s something I’ve been unable to sort out. Many instruments remain largely right at each speaker. I have toed them in so they crossed behind me, in front of me, and listened on-axis as well. Crossing just in front of me offers the best center fill, but anything not specifically mixed to the center is locked to either the right or left speaker. This remains no matter the source. I have had a lot of speakers through here over the years and have never experienced this issue. Most speakers put up a better soundstage in my room placing instruments across the entire soundstage including well to the outside. The 1723 S Monitors have a definite center, left speaker/right speaker soundstage.
