That's good news about your TDL's generally and I can imagine they will have plenty of low frequency extension. I found the PMC Fact-8's (which also use transmission lines to load the speakers) I borrowed last month were lean on the bass to my tastes) initially but responded well to a series of small (10cm) moves towards the back wall. Maybe that helps with the TDL's but you may already have done this.

That's a very good point about a lot of changes at once Tim. I've done that on a number of occasions and sometimes wondered if any of the specific changes wre a small step backwards. Obvious suggestion but can you temporarily reverse any of the improvements to identify what's changed with each?

BTW I'm pleased you've moved away from silver plated cables. When I did this I found the loss of treble detail seemed odd initially but switching back from plain copper (OFC) to silver-plated copper makes me notice the sparkle or sheen. Not to my personal tastes but probably good in some systems, a large furnished or dead room.

Tim, do you want to borrow a pair of Spatia speaker cables to see what the TDL's can do? If so please PM me.

Agree with you John re speaker placement. Mine are only a few inches from the rear wall with not too much angling in. 
Copper speaker cables I would say give a softer sound. Less treble forward. I like it. 

Enjoying the system & without the sub too. 
Is the pursuit High Fidelity a sign of mental illness??
I think so....
