A poll...as well as a thread for discussion on StereoXL...
Do you use it? What setting do you use? And if it depends, what does it depend on? Do you set it and forget it? Or do you constantly tweak it based on the music you are listening to?

Mostly it's left on Medium, but sometimes when I have the Boom outside I will put it up to High.Sue

That makes sense...
In the Boom whitepaper (page 7), it states "In order to allow for varying user preferences, and track encodings there are 3 settings for StereoXL. The best one is typically in the middle (medium)."

Wax On, Wax Off
My use is more like the Karate Kid, XL On, XL Off. Depending on the room and the use, I either have it XL On set to medium or XL Off.iPhone

I leave mine on medium but occasionally turn it up to high if I am listening to highly processed psy-ambient music (usually whilst in a alternative frame of mind).
Why the poll?
