Well, I do think the L1 is probably a good product. The question that needs to be answered next is ... do I wish to spend $2000 (you really need 2 of them) for my in-home setup ? That may take me awhile to decide. Actually, what will need to happen is that I will need to see that I have that pile of money available with no problem.

So, no action for now.

Why do you need 2? I never will understand this seemingly universal need to turn a mono instrument into a stereo one.

I saw a finger style guitarist in a storefront setting with the L1, which is probably one of the easiest thing to make sound great, and it did.

Pardon me for imposing, I thought DMD was looking for a live setup.
I am looking for a 3-way computer speaker setup as a 3rd set of reference for mixing. Right now I have Intrigue 3800 Creative Labs 2.1 in another room. I use them to check my mixes.

OT just got my PX5S

By "mono instrument" I assume you are referring to an acoustic piano. It appears that a digital piano is, in fact, a stereo instrument, unless the sound coming from the LEFT lineout is identical to the sound coming from the RIGHT lineout.

Channel 2 of the L1 compact has left and right line inputs. While it's true that the speakers ultimately represent a mono instrument, the L1 reproduces music from a stereo source just fine. Many people use it for stereo backing tracks as one of the sources in addition to their instrument.

Thought about this some more.... Mono makes more sense in a live situation. Most pianos have mono piano patches for this issue.

Also...

Here's what Bose has to say about this issue.

I'm pretty satisfied with my floorstanding setup. I think it's the best option if you have plenty of space. (see my signature)

For playing the piano in your home, you 100% definitely need stereo. The piano is certainly not a mono instrument (from player perspective) and you will lose a lot of depth by listening in mono.

Exactly. And almost all the samples in our pianos are designed to be played stereo. They don't sound right if you try forcing them into mono (or using just one channel). In fact, a complaint we hear from time to time here is that DP's don't include very good samples intended for mono use. A DP is by no means a mono instrument as a rule.
