Spent some time this weekend playing with the LFM-1 EX. As mentioned, I upgraded from a STF-2. It is more of an upgrade than I thought it would be. I'm no expert but the bass just spreads around the room more, is richer and deeper and really just makes my system complete. I have Polk Rti10s, CSi5 up front with the Denon 3808. Watched King Kong and Transformers with my boys. From previous viewings I remember a lot of rattle in the room. This time it was just deeper and truer sounding (not sure if that makes sense to anyone). It just sounded incredibly powerful. My kids wanted to watch Batman Returns yesterday and for an older DVD, the audio was excellent. Overall I just notice the bass a lot more, and it sounds like its not trying very hard. Sorry I don't have better terminology for this stuff, but I am ecstatic with this purchase. Oh yeah, during my beloved Giant game yesterday, we all noticed the bass like never before with all the fox graphics. Although my wife did say the loudest thump she heard all weekend was when I jumped up after RW's interception.
If you have to tell people how good you are, you're not as good as you think.
