I'm currently planning a high-end, but simple system comprising of either the McIntosh 406 HU or Clarion DRZ9255 (which includes TA), and using a high-end coaxial speakers along the lines of HAT Imagine, DLS MX26 or Reference R1073, Morel Hybrid Ovation 6.
If I went for the Mac, I realize there isn't and time alignment L/R. Would the only way to control time alignment of the front speakers be to use the phase control on the amp?
As for the Clarion, As I understand it, the outputs and TA is for highs, mids and bass only. How would I configure this to a pair of Coaxials, most of which have an off-board crossovers anyway?
I'm only really looking for time alignment with the two fronts and the sub, and all without an off-board TA unit (in the case of the McIntosh). Again would phase control be the only way to control this?
