LFR makes sense for 2.0 AND in multi channel the Center IS the underline the most important. So they say.
Now I want to try.


To clarify I meant only using the LFR center for mutli channel...the L and R would be non LFR.

Ha ... asked Ian about the other option listed

You know the "insane" one: 2 ADA1500-2 and a ADA1500-1 per speaker ...
He felt it appropriate for parties ...

So ... If you ever go to one of Ian's parties ... I would suggest you not stand anywhere close to the speakers without hearing protection and perhaps a fire extinguisher.

Those come with the subspace thermic injector option to shunt heat away from the coils via tetryon particles.

The setup for his boathouse party at the 30th anniversary was insane..live band through multiple M80's, will see if I can find the pictures.

Mike - and for the 35th, my actual pair of LFR-1100's were part of the PA system. If memory serves, there was also a pair of M100's in the mix.

It was pretty impressive for consumer loudspeakers to fill a room of 100 plus the way these 4 speakers did.

That's right, I remember that as well. We had the prototype Axiom Air connected to the ADA's and LFR1100's and dual 800's and people took turns using their phones to play music. I remember chatting politics and audio with you at breakfast!

Whenever Ian mentions "appropriate for parties" it's worth asking whether he is talking about indoor parties or parties where the listening area is a mid-sized lake.

The Brystonians are reporting the active Model T is beyond words. Outstanding clarity, pin-point 3D imaging and an immense, immersive soundstage.

That T however is not an LFR. I've seen the amplitude response chart and, unlike the active LFR, the listening window and sound power curves are not one. The T curves are also not as linear and don't quite decline at 3 dB/decade. It also appears to me from the specs, that the active LFR can reach higher SPLs and is a tad more efficient. This tells me the LFR is indeed the speaker that is likely to elicit a more emotional response from the listener.

I think it's a great gesture on Ian's part to discount the actives so much and give more people the opportunity to experience them in real wood veneer no less. I'm not sure another consumer speaker with this kind of performance can be had at any price.
