SNAMM03: M-Audio Have You Surrounded
Hands up.. LX4 surround system won't break the bank

The latest M-Audio speaker package starts off as a 2.1 system (2-satelites and a subwoofer) and can be upgraded to bring us affordable surround monitoring. The heart of the Studiophile LX4 system is the subwoofer, the unit contains the active crossover matrix for both the 2.1 system and the completely expanded 5.1 system. The integral 125-watt power amp houses enough power for the full surround system—60 watts for the subwoofer and 27 watts for each of the 5 satellites in the full LX4 Surround Sound System. The ported design of the subwoofer cabinet combines with the 8” woofer for a formidable bass experience. The passive satellites contain a 4” polypropylene woofer and 1” mylar high-frequency drivers. Those on a tight budget can start of with the Studiophile LX4 2.1 system comprising of the sub unit plus two satelites for stereo operation. The Studiophile LX4 5.1 Expander is a separate package comprised of three additional LX4 passive satellites. These simply connect to the subwoofer of the LX4 2.1 System to complete the LX4 Surround Sound System. “We’re very excited about the modular design of the LX4 Surround Sound System,” says Adam Castillo, Marketing Director at MAudio. “Lots of people are anxious to get into surround sound, but aren’t sure they’re ready to commit. The LX4s allow users to buy the LX4 2.1 system today for a better-than-stereo experience and amortize their investment by simple expanding the system when they are ready for surround. Combined with their compact size, the passive design of the satellites is also a plus because people have found it challenging to route AC from the same circuit all over a room for active surround environments. The LX4s are simply our response to what the market wants.” The LX4 2.1 System and LX4 5.1 Expander carry MSRPs of $349.95 and $199.95 respectively. Shipping August
