That said, and based on system photographs I've seen, and a few of those I've listened to, a number of owners don't have their speakers located optimally. However, the speakers are very portable and can be moved from a storage position to a listening position very easily when the wife is gone.......which is the procedure followed by some owners.
Absolutely agree. Mine used to be in my music room where I could place them optimally. However, they didn't get used so much because the LX521s are there also. As I mentioned in my earlier post they are not in an ideal position in the living room, but work much better than I expected for everyday TV use and casual music listening. My wife primarily uses this system for watching French and Spanish movies so dialogue is the most important thing not crash, bang, wallop explosions etc. For serious music listening it is easy to pull them further out and turn them to the right so they are firing down the room.
If you are using a PC and JRiver as your source it is easy to build the required DSP in JRiver eliminating another box and cables. Just be aware that because of peculiarities in the way JRiver defines Q for high and low pass filters and shelving filters you can't simply drop the MiniDSP parameters in and get the best out of the LXMinis. They will sound OK and the adjustments are relatively small, but it is not as SL intended.
