As for volume level, I measured about 3dB lower for PLIIx than L7, which isn't "horribly low" by any stretch. My solution was to just turn the volume knob up, so the lower level has never been a problem for me.
You're so darn practical. Stop it.
The Lexicon MV-5/JBL Synthesis® AV-2 have nearly complete PLIIx controls: Center Width, Dimension,Panorama, Night.
My JBL Synthesis® SDP-5 has Center Width, Dimension, Panorama, Night, Sound Delay, and Output Levels for PLII (no Iix on this model), and it's primarily a rebadged MC-8. The MC-8 does have PLIIx, and according to the manual has Center Width, Dimension, Panorama, Night, Sound Delay, and Output Levels. I can't confirm this since I don't have an actual MC-8, just the SDP-5.Edited by filecat13 - 1/22/13 at 2:40pm
