Revel Ultima Studio Loudspeakers
Introduction By the strained look on the face of the delivery person as he wheeled the Revel Ultima Studio’s into my room, I could tell I was clearly in for a workout setting up these speakers. After he finished chuckling at my suggestion that he lend a hand and help me unpack and position the speakers, the delivery man was off. Before me sat two boxes that I could hardly budge. The unpacking instructions indicate that two strong people should perform the task of unpacking and set-up; ideally, these are instructions that ought to be followed. Revel is the latest addition to the Madrigal Audio Group, owned by Harman International. Revel’s mission when founded in 1996 was to redefine the state of the art in loudspeaker design. With the resources of a NYSE-financed parent company, as well as some of the most advanced loudspeaker driver, cabinet and assembly know-how from sister companies like JBL and ...

MartinLogan Scenario Loudspeakers
Introduction The Scenario is the latest offering from Martin-Logan, the electrostatic technology speaker company, as the company refers to itself. The design goal for the Scenario was to position it just below the Aerius, which is now available only in bi-wire guise, in price and sonics. With feedback from dealers, interior designers and the like, some felt the Aerius was just a little too tall for certain applications, so with a mating of the electrostatic panel from the wall-mount Script model and the woofer from the bi-wire Aerius model, the $1,995 per pair Scenario was born. Measuring in at 48 inches high with a very small 10 by 14-inch footprint, the Scenario is about ten inches shorter than the Aerius and gives up a little to bass response as the cabinet, which houses an 8 inch woofer, is smaller, as well. Martin-Logan has big plans for the Scenario as use with an all Martin-Logan ...

Introduction Many loudspeaker manufacturers tout their products as a great value for the price. NHT does more than beat its chest about such bargains; it’s the company’s philosophy. At $750.00 for the pair, the SuperTwo system is no exception. Since 1986, NHT has challenged the notion that there is a direct correlation between emptying your bank account and acquiring the very best sound. The guiding star of NHT’s product designs is based upon the sciences of psychoacoustics, human auditory perception and love for music and sound. Each model is designed with both acoustic and aesthetic parameters of the home environment in mind. In addition, this company believes in putting the cost of production in the mouth of sonic quality – real world sort of stuff. The nuts and bolts are as follows: The NHT SuperTwo is a three-way tower system, which includes a 1" fluid-cooled soft dome tweeter, 6.5" midrange woofer and a 6.5" long-throw ...

MartinLogan reQuest Loudspeakers
Introduction The Martin Logan Re-Quest is a hybrid electrostatic - dynamic loudspeaker system that uses a 30 degree curved electrostatic panel mounted to a dynamic subwoofer enclosure featuring a 12 inch, cast mounted driver crossed over at 280 Hz. Re-Quests are quite large, standing a little under 6 feet tall, 18 inches wide and about a foot deep. The panel's diaphragm is made of a super light proprietary vapor deposited polyester film and housed in a perforated, insulated steel frame. This diaphragm moves back and forth in small increments when fed an audio signal, thus creating Martin Logan's signature mid and high frequency sound. While the dynamic low frequency driver is not rear ported, the electrostatic panel does fire both ways making the Re-Quest quite room and placement sensitive. Re-Quests come with bass equalization, which proves to be ...

Genesis Technologies APM-1 and 700 Speakers
Introduction The APM-1 loudspeaker from Genesis Technologies strikes the perfect balance between beauty and performance with its unaffected and true-to-life sonic qualities. The exquisite 11 inch wide cherry front baffle, houses two 6.5 inch metal cone mid-bass couplers, a 5.5 inch titanium coned midrange driver and two 1 inch planar ribbon tweeters. Occupying space within the same enclosure is a 500-watt amplifier that drives the single 15 inch metal cone side-firing woofer. The ribbon tweeters are hand crafted using a super thin laminated membrane of aluminum and Kapton, measuring only .0005 of an inch thick. The ribbons are placed inside the speaker enclosure in a dipole design, producing sound from both the front and rear with one driver out of phase with the other. Mid-bass couplers are used as a sound bridge between the midrange driver and the subwoofer. The woofer is servo controlled and driven by the Genesis GSAT power amplifier, achieving low frequency ...
