After listening to this for about a month I'm still very much enjoying my Polk MagniFi Mini, although I have noticed a somewhat "processed" sound on high frequency instruments (cymbals, bells). This seems to really show itself on small ensemble instrumental jazz, and some on small rock and Fusion groups (ie. Rush---- Gambale, Hamm, Smith), I only occasionally find it annoying since this is a casual listening setup.
I have the sub behind my monitor (just visible in the right of the picture in my last post) and think it's getting some considerable wall proximity boost. The bass adjustment seems to tame this quit well with 2 bumps down while using the "music" preset.
I have a Riva Turbo X on order for the bedroom/garage/job site, I don't expect it to have the bass that this Polk has, but it will be interesting to hear how the mids and highs compare. I'm looking at getting a long range Bluetooth Transmitter to tie this all together.
I'm driving the Polk analogue from my computer, JRiver MC 23, ASIO direct to Steinberg UR28M.
