Here are the X1's with the DHT LIO, sourced from JRiver to a MicroRendu.
We had all 3 LIO line stage options, copper AVC Tube Stage, silver AVC Tube Stage, and 2A3 DHT.
Only LIO gives you the option to switch in just a couple minutes, it's child's play.
Each had their favorite, not necessarily the same, so there is something for everyone.
Up close and personal, these things are absolutely rock solid stable and massive, unlike some OB realizations.
You just can't budge them and any counter force from the drivers must be very, very low.
The rest of the family, M4's and M3's waiting in the wings.
M3Turbo S and X1 side be side.
Completely integrated LIO X1 solution with analog 2 way XO, 4 channel power amp (blue heatsink) all in one module replacing the 2 channel amp module.
Yesterday was a long day of getting everything dialed in, but last night all was sounding very good.
All I can say so far is we listened to a TON of music courtesy of JTW DJ, and this simple LIO - X1 combo is going to be a major disruptor when you look at the overall value proposition. Oh, and no fancy cables needed
Clayton and everyone at Spatial have been terrific hosts, so huge thanks to all!
