It would be nice to adjust the sound levels for each speaker. I am highly skeptical of distance adjustments for the following reasons:
- It is about 1ms per foot. When was the last time you noticed a sync problem or delay talking to someone across the room
- I never really noticed or heard anyone complain about the sound in different seats in the same theater.
In most cases, this is just a me too issue. Sound levels for each speaker is far more important.
That said, after sending me a bogus tracking number and reshipping, I finally received my Prelude. I am very pleased with this board. I like it much better than the X-Meridian and the X-FI XtremeMusic even though I had put LM4562s in both. The X-Meridian was tougher and more dynamic but a bit digital, there was something about the midrange that I did not care for. The XtremeMusic had better balance but did not have the dynamics and bass control.
The Prelude is great. Very clean, dynamic, and controlled. It is not quite a match for my Onkyo Pro 885 preamp, but hey, that cost my 7 times as much
All operations perform similar to my XTremeMusic but with cleaner fuller sound.
