Not as far as it looks, wide angle lens. Seating is 10 feet from the speaker drivers.

Do you find you get sympathetic resonance from the piano at certain frequencies? I would be afraid of the piano ringing as the volume increased.

When I’m listening I throw a big heavy wool blanket over the piano. But yes, I have had it ring but honestly it takes a LOT, like Rage Against the Machine at 110db at the listening position.

Haha, I was anxiously waiting for my audiophile brethren to question that placement. This is temporary since the main room where it sits is housing the Christmas tree and decorations. The acoustics of the main room are far better than the current room.
