A question about your Model 3s

Do you use them facing toward each other, as recommended, rather than at the listening position? Among Model 2 and 2SW owners there seems to be at least a few who prefer to aim the speaker at the listening position, rather than as recommended by Harold Beveridge. I am not one of those iconoclasts, but sometimes I feel like stereo separation is a bit too emphatic in the recommended orientation, and perhaps that is because I have my speakers a bit farther apart than is optimal for best soundstaging on all program sources. I did find that there is a limit beyond which the image fails to coalesce in the center, and it's different for different LPs. One can hardly be jumping up between records to wrestle with the distance between the speakers, so I leave mine as is. Otherwise, the front to back sense of depth is staggering.
