Klipsch Synergy SA-3 AllWeather Loudspeakers
Introduction With summer approaching and the weather getting warmer, many music enthusiasts including myself are looking forward to barbecuing on the patio and some outdoor relaxation. Fine wine, gourmet food and great friends, and of course let’s not forget the ingredient that no party is complete without – fantastic tunes. The SA-3 is the largest in Klipsch’s All-Weather speaker line, measuring 16 inches wide, 11 inches tall, 10 inches deep and weighing 15 pounds per speaker. The cost of ownership is $699 per pair in either black or white finish. Having just re-landscaped my backyard, I’ve been looking for some serious outdoor speakers to provide the much- needed finishing touch. I looked at many speaker systems, including some that resembled rocks. The opportunity to review an outdoor speaker could not have come at a better time. When asked which model I wanted to review, I said, "Give me the biggest ones." Ask and you shall receive – ...

MartinLogan Prodigy Loudspeakers
Introduction For years MartinLogan has produced electrostatic loudspeakers that have been considered by many to be at the top of their respective classes. The Prodigy is MartinLogan’s top-of-the-line speaker under their very-respected Statement E2 loudspeaker system. The Prodigy has been in production for close to 18 months. Although it utilizes technology from the Statement Loudspeakers, it does so at a much-reduced price. The Prodigy measures 67 inches tall, 16 inches wide, 28 inches deep and weighs a hefty 133 pounds per speaker. The MartinLogan Prodigies retail for $10,995 per pair in standard wood trim finishes. It’s hard to deny that MartinLogan loudspeakers have a unique look. The upper two-thirds of the loudspeaker consists of a thin transparent perforated panel, with the bottom portion of the loudspeaker containing the low-frequency enclosure. The Prodigy shares a similar size and position in MartinLogan’s speaker lineup with the ReQuests of the past, but that is where all similarities end. The ...

Revel B15 Subwoofer
Introduction The Revel B15 sub is the first subwoofer from Madrigal’s Revel speaker line in their comparatively affordable Performa series. Priced at $2,995 in Black Ash and $3,295 in faux Rosewood, Cherry or Sycamore wood veneers, the B15 addresses some traditional subwoofer problems with new, highly successful solutions. At nearly 20 cubed inches in size, the B15 is slightly larger than subwoofers like my reference Sunfire Signature, yet it still retains a modest physical footprint. The B15 is far more than a product that simply fills out a product line. This is a major design accomplishment. First off, the output of this 15-inch subwoofer is staggering at 113 dB at 20 Hz and an awe-inspiring 126 dB at 30 Hz. Revel has made headlines with a Harman-financed research and development budget that makes other high-end speaker manufacturers sick with envy. The B15’s 15-inch driver is yet another example of how Revel is creating products ...

Final 0.3 Loudspeakers
Introduction The Final 0.3 ($2,399) is Final A.I.P. of The Netherlands first speaker to be released in the United States. The Final 0.3 is an electrostatic hybrid design, utilizing a 48-inch electrostatic panel and a seven-inch metal alloy woofer. (For more on the pros and cons of metal woofers see the RBH review.) The review samples were finished in anodized aluminum, with the panels suspended at a seven degree reclined angle between two brushed aluminum posts. The cylindrical woofer cabinet sits behind the panel and fires upward and forward at thirty degrees. The Final 0.3's must be used either with bi-wire speaker cables or jumpers, both of which must be terminated with banana plugs. Comparisons between the Final electrostatics and those of Martin Logan are inevitable. There are significant notable differences between the two, even before listening begins. The Final 0.3's are shipped unassembled. The user must attach the panel to the woofer cabinet with a ...

Sunfire True Subwoofer Architectural Subwoofer
Introduction The True Subwoofer Architectural is an 11-inch cube weighing 40 lbs. with a price tag of $1,395 in black and $1,450 for its optional white finish. The Sunfire True Architectural Sub shares much of the technology found in Sunfire’s top-of-the-line $1,995 Signature Subwoofer, with the exception that it was designed so that the owner has the option of being able to place it in a cabinet. The demand for the Architectural Subwoofer originally came from custom installers who were looking for creative ways to better hide components. It is no secret that some components such as your main loudspeakers should remain on the open floor for optimal performance. Because low-frequency information is for the most part considered to be non-directional, many were interested in the possibility of hiding the subwoofer in a cabinet. The big question is whether it can perform as well as a subwoofer that is well-positioned on a listening room ...
