Default LX521 Review (of sorts)

I have tried my hand at writing a review (perhaps a description would be a better phrase) ...

Resonance Frequency

Check it out (using a grain of salt ...

I notice this with my desktop dipoles. Although they image amazingly...like a studio monitor, I know sound is coming from them, because they are so funky looking.

Melo, is there anywhere I can learn more about those speakers?

well...

Back to my premise -- the LX521 is a better loudspeaker than the ORION/PLUTO/PHEONIX -- it leaves these systems in “the dust”.

The thing that haven't really worked for me with the Orions (not that other speakers satisfied me in that respect, very far from it!!) are the horns, on loud symphonic crescendos, like Bruckner's apotheotic finales conducted by Celi.

You review, on top of others is making me really think now..

thanks!

PS: also a "fan" of Thoreau..

It's well documented that people are substantially more affected by looks than anything else. Hardcore audiophiles will also be very affected by the "feel" of the sound. Room acoustics and tone control adjustment will affect that more than the difference between most speakers.

The dispersion/directivity/etc. of the speakers determines the result of any given "room acoustics", and that varies tremendously between speakers. The usability and effectiveness of EQ also varies widely. I agree that appearances matter, and I agree that rooms matter a great deal, but I think your conclusion contradicts itself.

wow! Dark Vador or Black Hawk??

looking at the midrange height, a 3rd 10" could have been an option? Did you get a listen?

It is also well known that audiophiles buy and listen with their eyes, not their ears..
