“…I’ve used dipoles for years (Maggies, Martin Logan, Podium and Quad)
and I thought I understood what an open baffle speaker sounded like.I was wrong, very wrong. Siegfried Linkwitz` term “phantom scene” is
absolutely bang on. I’ve just emerged from 4 hours straight with a broad grin on my face, and am
about to go in for more…..” (Craig, Oxford/UK, LX521 owner)
“The speakers naturally disappear as soon as you start the music; you don’t even have to close your eyes. I would go even further—you have to make a slight mental effort to be aware that the speakers are actually there! It’s uncanny. The precise phantom images produce:d by the LX521 create the most solidly three-dimensional soundstage of any stereo system in my listening experience.” (TheAudioCritic.com, Peter Aczel)
“Just wanted to tell you that that a nephew recently payed me a visit. He had just bought an advanced surround system with B&W speakers and a NAD amplifier. Because of budget restrictions he had to go for the CM9, but during the selection process he listened (blindly) to the store’s best speakers and (unsurprisingly) selected B&W 800 Diamond as the best-sounding. On this background he was completely shocked by the performance of the LX521. First of all he was impressed by the quality of the bass which was the best he ever heard, but also praised the transparent highs and the open midrange. Looking at the price, he declared that this had to be the bargain of the century. .. I am extremely satisfied with my system now,…..thank you (and Siegfried, of course) for the best speaker system I (and my nephew) have ever heard. Kind regards ” Terje S. Norway, LX521& PowerBox 6pro NCore
