Hello all. This noob is a musician working from his home studio and I'm in need of monitors for mixing/mastering. I plan on buying the NX studios for this purpose as soon as I'm finished building my custom PC. I'm not the biggest audiophile or diy-er. But I do need good sound quality in my set up. Not perfect but certainly of "hifi grade" if possible.
Haven't read this entire thread yet but was wondering if a combination of 2 or possibly 3 Crown XLS gen 2 amps might be able to supply clean power to the L/R studio monitors and a servo subwoofer? My audio interface, the Motu M4, has L/R balanced xlr stereo outs. I'm not sure how I'd get the LFE channel out from my audio interface. I know the crowns allow for eq tweaks and splits and mono setups etc. maybe the solution lies in their settings. But this is just an idea with my very facile understanding of audio gear.
Would this be feasible to carry the entire spectrum of sound successfully from my computer to the studios/servo sub? My only other minor concern is that apparently the crown dacs downsample to 24 bits. But they're still quality Ice power class d amps. Each can be bought under 250$ usually. And obviously no assembly. (Though I am still VERY tempted to build archimagos diy hypex dual monoblock amp).
Other amps I've considered are those with balanced inputs made by Rotel, Teac, Cambridge, and SPL. Any other suggestions or ideas on how I might be able to get my setup running adequately would be so appreciated.
