Re: Stereo input to L1 Compact

Hi Simpa-tico2,

Great question.  The L1® Compact has two different stereo inputs:

  • 1/8" Tip-Ring-Sleeve 
  • RCA jacks for left and right

In the picture below the stereo inputs are marked "Connect backing track device here"

We have notes here: Stereo Mixer to Mono L1®

If you need more information, please tell us about your stereo source device.

Thanks,

ST

Re: Stereo input to L1 Compact

Thanks for the reply!  But I’m asking how to bring a stereo signal into the L1.  I want to know how the unit handles stereo.  When it receives a stereo signal does it render a stereo image?  Do I truly get both channels?

Hi Simpa-tico2,

A stereo signal is mixed to mono internally. You get both channels, but without the stereo image.

Are you near an L1® dealer where you can hear it?

How are you planning to use an L1® Compact?

Re: Stereo input to L1 Compact

To tell the truth I own and love an L1.  I was thinking of using it as our home “stereo” and I was curious about the way the system handles stereo.  I always feel like I’m hearing both channels, but wanted to be sure.  Thanks very much for your help!

Hi Sampa-tico2,

Your L1® Compact has extremely wide horizontal dispersion. In a room at home, you will often get very nice early side reflections and a generous sense of spaciousness.

Enjoy your L1®.
