CLX with Descent i
by Garth, 7 months ago

I have had these speakers for some time serial # 44 and 45 never have had a problem with them.
Music wise they are great they still bring magic to music played I use them with the Descent i which I like with them. With good electronics they are hard to beat. I use Ayre mono blocks KXR and Ayre MXR pre amp then a Burmester 100 phono amp a Clear audio statement table a Tri-Planar arm then a Ortofon SPU Royal N. interconnects are Ayre signature series speaker wire is Cardas Clear. I also run a Ayre DX5 and Apple TV with Netflixs.

So they get a lot of hours never had a problem with them. They have taken a lot of playing power outages Lighting storms and still play dead quite .
The better the amps you use the better you will get for the price I think you would have to spend a lot more to get better sound. Barring defects in the clx if you are not getting great sound the problem is up stream. Thou they are not a easy speaker to set up they take awhile to find the right position a quarter inch can make a big change get help if you can.

This speaker is large no way around that but is far better looking in a room than a lot of large speakers. I feel the CLX is a great speaker long term a good deal. Hope this helps I have never regretted buying them.

CLX and Surround Sound
by JMAUSGP, 4 years ago

I don't think that the CLX is used in a multichannel system much. Yes as the front channels but all the way around. Oh, but what are you missing?

Quite simply, when the CLX is used in a multi-channel surround sound configuration and when it is fed high resolution discrete 5.1 source material such as SACD, DVD Audio, or Bluray audio, the experience is nothing short of mind blowing.

When sitting in the sweet spot, the music from well mixed surround sound such as Porcupine Tree, Elton John, Pink Floyd,Depeche Mode,The Beatles or anything from Steve Wilson, will absolutely amaze and astound you.

The CLX has the ability to extend the clear crisp fast sound that so many like from the upper registers, all the way down to the low end. It truly is like taking the CLS or Summit X for that matter and placing them on Steroids.

The CLX surround sound system is truly an E-ticket and would do well at Disney World, giving all patrons the sound experience of a lifetime.
