M-Audio is now offering its new Studiophile LX4 2.1 System and Studiophile LX4 5.1 Expander, which, together, comprise the Studiophile LX4 Surround Sound System.

The Studiophile LX4 2.1 System offers two satellites and a subwoofer for high-performance 2.1 monitoring. The subwoofer 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 five satellites in the full LX4 Surround Sound System. The passive satellites contain a 4-inch polypropylene woofer and 1-inch mylar high-frequency drivers.

The Studiophile LX4 5.1 Expander is a separate package comprising 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,” said Adam Castillo, marketing director at M-Audio. “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 simply 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. Both products are now shipping.
