Morel Octwin 5.2M Loudspeakers
Introduction Founded in Israel during the mid-1970s, Morel is very well known for manufacturing ultra-high quality drivers for other loudspeaker manufacturers. Their physical transducers are found in loudspeakers manufactured all over the world, including many award-winning models. While some audio enthusiasts have never heard of Morel as a driver manufacturer, they undoubtedly have heard Morel speakers as part of another speaker system. Now aggressively marketing specialty home and car speakers in the U.S. and around the world, Morel produces more than just raw drivers; they manufacture top-notch loudspeakers that range from truly affordable systems that compete with the likes of Bose, Energy Definitive Technology and Paradigm, as well as higher-end systems that run with a more snooty, high-priced crowd like Revel, B&W and Wilson. Morel’s Octwin 5.2M loudspeakers are in a class of products that Morel calls Music Deco, which targets listening connoisseurs who also seek edgy, modern aesthetics. The Octwin 5.2M loudspeaker system consists of two Octave ...

Polk Audio LSi9 Bookshelf Speakers
Introduction Polk. It’s one of those brands that almost anyone who has ever stepped foot into an electronics store chain to shop for new speakers has heard of. Their product line is immense and they make everything from micro-satellite systems for your computer to equipment racks to Earth shaking subs, floor standing loudspeakers and car audio products. Their top of the line LSi series features two floor-standing models, the LSi15 and LSi25, the LSiC center channel, LSiFX bi-pole/di-pole surrounds, the LSi subwoofer and two bookshelf models, the LSi7 and LSi9. Cracking open the box of a pair of LSi9 bookshelf speakers, the first thing that I noticed about the speakers was their distinctive smooth black high-gloss finish on the top and rich cherry wood sculpted side panels. I’ve seen Polk speakers countless times in retail mega-stores, but it was ...

Revel Sub 30 Subwoofer
Introduction The Revel Sub 30 is the latest addition to Revel’s Ultima line of premium loudspeakers. Building on lessons learned with the groundbreaking Revel B15 subwoofer in the Performa line, the Sub 30 comes to the AV market in a whole new class in terms of both performance and aesthetics. Gone are the boring black box lines of a traditional subwoofer. The Revel Sub 30 rounds out the lines with the kind of industrial design that you might expect more from Apple than Harman; however, anyone who has seen the new Harman-Kardon receivers might say the U.S. electronics manufacturer has turned a new page in terms of their products’ physical appearance. The price for the Revel Sub 30 starts at $5,990 for a standard finish. It can also be ordered with aluminum side panels for a $500 premium. The speaker complement includes a 15-inch driver and a secondary 15-inch dual-layer metal dome acoustic radiator. The ...

Wilson Audio WATT Puppy Version 7 Loudspeakers
Introduction Wilson claims that their WATT Puppy loudspeaker system is now the best selling $10,000 plus speaker in audio history. Having sold dozens of pairs myself while working at Christopher Hansen Ltd. in Beverly Hills nearly a decade ago, I wouldn’t argue with Wilson’s claim. At around $22,000, David Wilson’s location monitor has developed into a far more refined loudspeaker system. In adapting to the modern, multi-channel home theater market, WATT Puppies can also be matched with Wilson subwoofers as well as rear and center speakers. To say this transducer has come a long way from the strange little (but very heavy) speakers Dave used to drag along as part of his recording rig is a major understatement. There are a number of changes to the WATT Puppy for Version 7 from Version 6. One of the most significant changes to the speaker is the use of an even more “dead” material, which Wilson ...

Jean Marie Reynaud Evolution 3 Loudspeakers
Introduction Recently, while perusing new and different speaker products, our editor at Audiorevolution came across a French speaker brand called Jean Marie Reynaud that piqued my interest. Due to logistics, our best opportunity to review this product was at a local audio/video retailer, Evolution Audio in Agoura Hills, California. Jean Marie Reynaud had been around since 1967 and is one of France’s most respected specialty audio manufactures. The $3,890 Evolution 3 speakers from Jean Marie Reynaud immediately caught my attention when I walked into the room at Evolution where they were on display. The speakers filled the room with a solid, soulful soundstage. The speakers themselves are somewhat diminutive floor-standing speakers, with beech-veneered cabinets that stand 42 inches high, eight inches wide and 12 inches deep. One of the first things I noticed visually was that the tweeters were situated in their own bullet-shaped enclosures on top of the rectangular cabinet box, reminiscent of the B&W ...
