CONCLUSIONS & AFTERTHOUGHTS
M-Audio set out to make an affordable, all-in-one sound solution for the home studio user, who also likes to watch movies. With the LX-4, I think they reached their goal. While not cheap ($350 MSRP for the 2.1 set, and an additional $200 for the surround expander kit), the sound they produce well makes up for the price. And, while they're lacking in some amenities, such as a control pod, what you get in return is pristine sound reproduction. Among all the more powerful, larger, and prettier speaker setups available, this is the only one that will also allow you to mix your own music, with the clarity one expects from a good studio monitor, then rock your socks off with your favorite CD. A job well done.
- Great sound
- Modular cables for both input and speakers
- Efficient amps for great volume
- Not well-suited for large rooms as a main speaker source
