just another very happy owner (M3 turbos) - and a Canuck to boot.  Good to see the new circle and look forward to even more reading on AC.

I have had the M3 Turbo S's for about a year now and love them. They have shown me that you can get a much more "real life" sounding system for the money spent on these speakers vs shelling out huge bucks on a designer trying to deaden a cabinet so it can not be detected in the sound which always bothered me. Good to see this brand get their own circle

I am honored to have a pair of Spatial's X1 speakers in my audio room. It was a pleasure getting to know Clayton Shaw in the process.

Congratulations!

Would you mind posting on this thread http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=146217.0 as to how they sound, and what speakers did you use previously?

Hi Patrick

What is the rest of your set-up with the X1's and any chance of a review coming up? :thumb:

It's great to hear such enthusiastic support for Spatial products. Can some of you comment on associated equipment e.g. amplification? Are these speakers power hungry, need help on the bottom end, etc.  How many of you bought them without hearing them first? Thank you

Abt 95 dB efficient - my 2A3 amp drives them.  For real strong bass,  more power helps - I have 2 subs I use.  Currently using one of the new 1200AS Ice amps with billions of watts and they play SO LOUD without distortion - just what Marilyn Manson's music needs.  With this amp subs just add a very little deep bass, but really aren't needed.

I too am running Class D amps with the 3 Turbo S and have no need for a sub. Prior to the Class D mono amps I had an 8 watt SET and the bass was AWOL.

Oh, I should mention that I was privileged to hear them at a friend's place in Kelowna and also at the Spatial dealer here in Canada.

I purchased after hearing at a show (RMAF 2016) and use PP tube and Class D amplification. Both sound great with the Spatials. I'll be purchase a sealed sub at some point soon to augment the deepest part of the freq range but I haven't found them lacking at all.

They ARE a diff sound than dynamic box speakers or electrostatic ones which I've owned in the past. But it sounds more coherent overall in my ears.

Powering my M4's with a Class D Audio SDS250. Bought without listening. Just a lot of reading. My room is 11X12X9 and is treated. It was an echo chamber when we moved in.
Tried some powered monitors. Added a Rythmik sub and sounded pretty good. Could never get the sub "just right".
Moved onto some Magnepan MMG's. Worked pretty good in here 30" from the front wall and me sitting about 6-7' away. They needed a sub. Same problem. I think I just wanted a speaker where I didn't need a sub.
Read a lot about open baffle speakers and how they work in small rooms. Was gonna buy some Caintuck speakers to see what all the fuss was about OBS. Then I read a review by John Darko describing the M4's as a good step up from the MMG's.
I found a smoking deal on a used pair of M4's and pulled the trigger and never looked back. Sold the sub a short while after.
When I first fired them up I couldn't believe how different the bass sounded. Still don't have words to describe other than realistic.
Hope this helps a month later.

Hi Spatial....or Clayton. I’m a new member so forgive me. Anyhow, I’ve been following the evolution of Spatial speakers for some time and am VERY interested in the OB concept. This goes back to the days of
Dahlquist dq-10’s. The X-3’s could be the last set speaker’s I dive into. I’m not an audiophile but do want the whole package, which means HT is also important. Therefore, what can be recommended for possible ceiling speakers, sides, surrounds and subs to FILL a home with a Spatial X-3 system. Any thoughts are welcome.
