Yep, that all makes sense.

I'm taking a bit of a chance with the LFRs, not because I have any doubts that they will be very good at what they are designed to do, but just because I'm not sure how closely my listening preferences align with their goals.

That said, I'm going into this knowing what to expect and am apparently OK with that, so we'll see how it goes. The safe/smart thing would have been to go with M100's, but the LFRs kept calling to me.

Having Ian tell me I needed LFRs every time I stopped by didn't help either laugh

I am finding that I have less and less time for "sit in one place" listening these days so I'm hoping that "decent soundstage across a wider area" ends up being a good tradeoff against "sharpest imaging when sitting in exactly one spot".

I need to get rid of the current listening chair anyways... the big poofy arms are messing with imaging to the point where I have to perch precariously on the edge of the seat cushion for best results... so I'm guessing it should work out OK on balance.

I would not be surprised to see active M100s at some point.

Your empathy is comforting.

I see. So you want to graze around your house as opposed to sitting at your MLP. You sound like Slimpikins who grazes while maxing out both his Anthem M1s and needed the outboard Bryston crossover for his Ts so they don't ignite.

Are you going active LFRs?

Actually I do want to sit in the MLP - I just rarely have time these days. I was kinda hoping I wouldn't have to retire just to get a few minutes of free time every now and then, but starting to wonder.

Yep. I'm not entirely sure about the wisdom of spending even more before having a chance to figure out if I actually *like* the omnidirectional sound, but who can resist pre-order pricing ?

Ian's recommendation was to dedicate my 1500-4 to the woofers (using only 2 channels) and add a 1500-8 for everything else... so that's what I did.

I wonder if Ian's speakers are knotty pine too ?

Forget about retiring. There are active LFR2200s down the road. You know? The ones with drivers gracing the outboard sides of the cabinets. The ones that will have even more refinement in The Family of Curves. You can picture what's after the 2200s. smile

There is no wisdom in any of this. It's as Feynman said, all about the pleasure of finding things out.
