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 ...

Revel Performa F30 Loudspeakers
Introduction The Performa F30 is the entry-level $3,500 floor-standing speaker from high-end upstart speaker manufacturer Revel. Financed by Harman International, the largest U.S. based audio/video company, and under the close scrutiny of parent company Madrigal (Mark Levinson, Proceed, Madrigal Imaging etc.), Revel benefits from record-setting investments in research and development. Revel also benefits from over 35 years of speaker design and manufacturing experience from sister brands JBL and Infinity. Madrigal takes the Revel project very seriously, especially the Performa Series speakers, as these represent a reasonable entry to the world of high-end products that are affordable for affluent but non-millionaire enthusiasts. Until now, Revel has been establishing itself as a high-end speaker presence with it's Ultima line, with cost not being nearly as much a factor as performance. The Performa line makes compromises in the fit and finish department (especially when compared to the Gem, Studio and Salon speakers, two of which have reviewed on AudioRevolution.com previously), but still ...

Revel Ultima Salon Loudspeakers
Introduction The Salon is the flagship loudspeaker in the Revel lineup. Revel was established in 1997 as Madrigal’s premier speaker line to complement their electronics products, such as Mark Levinson and Proceed and, later, Madrigal Imaging and IRIQ remotes. Madrigal, which is owned and financed by Harman International, formed Revel with one intention – to produce the best loudspeakers in the world. A tremendous amount of money and design resources were allocated to this end, including the use of the largest speaker manufacturing facility in the world, the JBL & Infinity factory. In production since 1998, the Salon is a floor-standing loudspeaker system with a look of modern elegance. For better than a year, since the AudioRevolution.com review, I have made the smaller Revel Studios ($10,000 per pair) my reference loudspeakers. I welcomed the opportunity to review the much larger Salons. When I first laid eyes on the Salon, the thought that came to mind is ...

Edge Audio 502D Home Theater System
Introduction At $1,399, the 502D home theater system may prove to have the guts not only to break into the crowded market of bookshelf style speakers, but the technology to bust it wide open. The 502D system includes four 502D-LR satellite speakers, which house a five-inch magnetically-shielded woofer/midrange and a one-inch magnetically-shielded soft dome tweeter. The 502D-C center channel enclosure has basically the same configuration as the 502D-LRs, but its spade lug connectors are mounted to facilitate center channel horizontal placement. Each speaker component has been designed by Vifa, a Denmark-based company that has the reputation for producing high-quality and well-crafted components. To reduce resonance, these enclosures are constructed of solid plank hardwood, as opposed to veneer wrapped MDG particle board. These speakers also contain internal bracing and acoustic damping material to eliminate high-frequency reflection. They measure 11 inches high by six inches wide by six inches deep. For the bottom end, the 502D system includes the SW-12/320 long-throw ...

RBH MC-6CT Loudspeakers
Introduction RBH Sound, named after chief designer Roger B. Hassing (not to be confused with the late James B. Lansing) has recently risen up as a contender in the highly competitive US loudspeaker market with a lineup of high performance affordable music and theater speakers. RBH speakers are known for their use of aluminum drivers like those found on Velodyne and Monitor Audio speakers. RBH dresses up their speakers in ultra sexy colors and wood finishes not too far from what you’d expect from the super boutique, high end loudspeaker manufacturers such as Wilson and THIEL. The system I evaluated includes the MC-6T speakers and TS-12AP powered subwoofer priced at $1099 pair (for cherry or semi gloss white finishes, $999 in the black oak finish) and $799, respectively. My MC-6T and TS-12AP both came finished in a very high quality cherry wood veneer with removable, black grille covers. I was shocked when I opened ...
