Summary - Recommended but probably needs a separate subwoofer to do it justice.





I bought the x-space based on this review (couldnt find any other reviews) to use in my second lounge where space is limited but the family hangs out for thermal reasons in winter ( in the basementt I have an AV set up - KEF 5005.2 / onkyo 606 and audio set up - Arcam CD73/Lentek amp (inherited family heirloom from my cousin who made them) /Quad 22l floorstanders + Quad l-ite subwoofer. So I bought this as the third system in the house and for general family use (games, movies etc). I chose this over the Boston tvee since it had optical inputs. The X-space sounded good when I played "300" for the first time, with the level up fairly high it was good enough for "family" use but obviously lacked the thumping bass of a separate subwoofer unit. So as a test I paired this with the KEF HTB sub from the KEF 5005.2 and I must admit I couldnt go back to listening without the sub. But the x-space covers the mid and hi freq spectrum very well, and I will pair this with a KEF Kube 1 which will be powerful enough , as the HTB can scare the children when the level is above 20%. It might have been cheaper to go the 5.1 route direct , but I can recommend this unit for smaller rooms where you cannot or dont want to run cables and wall mounts and dont have the space and inclination for free standing speakers.
