The other system will be pure HT, so will have an AV processor.

Best,

Uh oh.  That's until you hear an AV processor compared to how you do it now.   :lol:  You will see (hear).  You will be  :scratch:

I've gotten a few PM's from members saying they have also put their deposit down. Should be interesting to see what everyone gets in terms of finish.  For me, I'm just basic black satin.

Can't wait for them to come to an AXPONA.  Or a Chicago buyer...

All,

I can confirm the the next show that will have the X1s (and LIO) will be Munich (May 2017), followed
by the LA Audio Show in early June.  The LA Show will be their "USA debut."

I'll be at AXPONA 2017, but Clayton and the X1s will not be there because he'll be too busy getting them ready
for their "world debut" at Munich.

I'm sure in time there will be owners in your area.  You can also go to the LA show.   ;)

The simplest option is a Smart Monobloc DSP amplifier module that fits into the X1 chassis and allows plug and play from your preamp output, priced at $2500/pr.

So for around $12,500 one can have an active version of this speaker. Hmmm... Did any of the folks who traveled to Utah hear this option? If so, was it inferior to the "all-out" option? Clayton, how much of the full potential would I get with this configuration?

Thanks!

We did not get to hear this configuration.  We listened to two variations; LIO with X1 module and the MiniDSP with Red Dragon amps.

goskers,

Thanks for the fast reply!

I'm looking for the simplest option. I basically want to drive them with my Mytek DAC/Preamp. Wondering how close I'd get to full potential with this configuration.

Best regards,

There is no reason why that option shouldn't sound damn fine.  Although i didn't do much serious listening with the MiniDSP in the chain it still sounded absolutely fantastic.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend that path to someone.

Clayton would be the one to ask regarding the built in options.

That is what I wanted to hear - One of the simplest options still sounded great. I will ask him directly.

Thanks again!

I'm digging the new look of the X1 posted on the Spatial site (below).

Definitely heading in the right direction.

The speaker looks better and better in each picture.   :thumb:

Surprised that there does seem to be any tilt to them in this design.

Maybe tilt is supposed to be adjusted with spikes but none are in the picture.

Not sure tilt is needed.

Maybe Clayton will comment on that aspect.

Given that the bass driver is an 18" unit, that may be misleading in terms of apparent size/height—in other words, the speakers may be taller than they seem and the listening axis is already correct for the seated listener, even with vertical baffle. They appear to be just over 50" tall.

There is limited tilt available just by adjusting the spike footer height. The waveguide has such good polar performance that in normal installations, the X1 should not need to be tilted. The vertical height of the driver aperture is 38 inches. The speaker dimensions are 47.5 H  X 16" D  X 20.6" W.

I agree jtwrace!  That is the look (white/grey) I ordered from Clayton.  I am very excited!   :D
