Hales Revelation Three Loudspeakers
Introduction The Hales Revelation Three is one of the newest members of the Revelation Series of loudspeakers manufactured by the Hales Design Group. Fitting right in line with Hales' two smaller models and their center channel, it is now possible to exclusively feature Hales speakers in assembling a coherent 5.1 surround system that has some serious punch. Visiting the Huntington Beach, California factory to pick up my review samples, I was warmly greeted by both Paul Hales and Hales' sales and marketing manager Casey McKee who were kind enough to give me a tour of the highly automated plant and explain some of the design philosophies behind Hales' current line of loudspeakers. The Three is a three-way design utilizing a 10 inch woofer of proprietary design, a 4.5 inch midrange and a 1 inch dome tweeter. The cabinets may be ordered in oak, black painted oak, sapele (which looks like rosewood) or natural cherry (which ...

Cello Stradivari Legend Loudspeakers
Introduction Cello Stradivari Legends are a $7000, 3-way dynamic loudspeaker system inspired by the cabinet style made famous by the legendary AR3 loudspeakers of the mid 1960's. Cello, the brainchild of Mr. Mark Levinson since 1984, builds rounded corner, exotic wood finished loudspeakers that utilize a highly efficient crossover with a compliment of three Dyn Audio drivers (a 1 inch tweeter, a 3 inch dome mid range and a 12 inch woofer). The cabinet is dampened by the internal use of a thin, green composite also used by NASA space shuttles, thus knocking on the cabinet is a futile exercise in that it lacks any significant resonance. Legends are 26.5 inches tall, 14 inches wide and 12 inches deep, thus they need the help of a Cello/Lovan six prong, lead shot filled ($700) speaker stand to fit into a standard audio or theater system. Cello showrooms will make custom angled Legends that can either sit ...

Bowers & Wilkins 604 Loudspeakers
Introduction With a slim footprint, sleek design and a dynamically powerful sound the B&W 604 tower loudspeakers fit right into any number of modern systems and do equally as well in just about any home decor. Standing 40 inches tall with a 3-way compliment including a B&W metal dome tweeter, one bright yellow colored B&W Kevlar 7 inch mid-range and two 7 inch Cobex drivers, these B&Ws have the ability to put out some serious musical energy while maintaining a razor sharp image. The 604s are capable of an imaging you would expect from a high end loudspeaker costing many thousands of dollars. B&Ws have not historically been known for their high efficiency ratings, however these 90 dB 604s can rock and roll on a 50 watt-per-channel Rotel integrated amp. Additionally, the 604s are not very placement critical. In setup we were forced to place them closer to a corner than we would have liked but ...

Wilson Audio WATT Puppy 5.1 Loudspeakers
Introduction The Wilson WATT Puppy is a truly classic loudspeaker design. Developed in the mid 1980s by David Wilson as professional location monitors, Wilson WATT Puppies have become the high end industry’s standard for music, theater and 35 millimeter film playback. The elements that make the WATT Puppy so special are complicated. First off, the sound is phenomenal. "Punchy," "crisp" and "extremely dynamic" just start to describe the event of listening to music or film soundtracks through WATT Puppies. The size, with its slender footprint, makes the speaker welcome in living rooms as well as mastering labs. Exotic paint and wood finishes give you the opportunity to either have your WATT Puppies blend into your décor, as they do in my room with my Asian Pearl paint job, or you can choose to have them be the focal point of your room with, say, a Lamborghini Fly Yellow finish. The WATT Puppy System is a two-piece ...
