Does it mean based on the measurements that Zensor 1's should be slightly toed in to get the best frequency response? If so, how much?

That will depend on the size of your room, that room's acoustics, and what music you prefer to play. Experiment with toe-in and use the amount of toe-in that gives the best balance of frequency response and stability of stereo imaging. There are no wrong answers. John Atkinson

Thank you very much. Do you have similar measurements for Zensor 7 as well? Do you think that will be much step up from 1's?

Not sure if these were introduced late, but I've been listening to them and finc the, to be impressive for the price. Is there any chance of seeing a review with measurements for that speaker?

With regards to toe in, I find the 3s to sound a whole lot better firing straight.

I've had mine long enough to not use the toe in method on these speakers. They have such a wide sound stage, to keep them firing forward takes away the point of sound. Instead you have a wall of sound which is more in tune with a live symphony or even a live pop concert.

Hey guys.I found a deal of these speakers and I was wondering if they are for audiophiles only and people who know how to customize sound and settings.
I want them for my PC (paired with a Creative Sound Blaster Z) .
Will I need an amplifier as well?
