Energy e:XL-28P Loudspeakers
Introduction The e:XL-28P is the flagship three-way tower speaker system of the e:XL series. This system is priced at a very attractive $1,200.00 per pair, including powered side-firing subwoofers. When I first saw the e:XL-28P, I thought it belonged in a museum, not at a trade show booth. The elegant lines of the enclosure, with its serene Rosewood finish (which is also offered in Black Ash and Northern Light Birch), was a pleasure just to look at. However, we all know appearances can be deceiving. After sitting through a demonstration of the e:XL-28P, it had not only caught eye and ear, it had warmed my heart - a wonderful example of form meeting function. I couldn’t wait to get a pair home to review. Starting from the inside out, the e:XL-28P offers a three-quarter-inch, magnetically shielded aluminum dome tweeter suspended on cloth for superb transient response and low distortion. The midrange section utilizes a six-and-one-half-inch magnetically shielded, injection-molded ...

Polk Audio RM6500 Home Theater System
Introduction It is truly a wonderful time to be entering the home theater market. Prices on systems are at all-time lows and the cost-to-value ratios are at all-time highs. The RM6500 is no exception to this trend. This RM6500 is a space-saving six-speaker, five-channel home theater loudspeaker system offered at a modest $1,099. The nuts, bolts and polymer aggregate material: As I began to set up this system, I noticed that the mini-satellites were heavy for their size – six-and-three-quarters inches high by four inches wide by five inches deep. After reading up on the subject, I learned that the satellite enclosures are made up of a polymer aggregate material that contains the appearance and acoustic characteristics of stone. This stone-like substance helps limit the enclosure from resonating, which is a good thing since the RM6500 includes a neat little bracketing system that allows you to mount the satellites against surrounding walls. Without this resonating ...

Sunfire True Subwoofer Junior Subwoofer
Introduction The Sunfire True Subwoofer Junior is the latest in Sunfire’s line of subwoofers priced competitively at $895. Those of you who are regular readers of AudioRevolution.com should be familiar with this series of subwoofers. For those of you who are new to these pages or who just need a recap, here it is: big subwoofer performance, little box. The Junior is a nine-inch cube that weighs a beefy 28 pounds. This tiny cube can reach down to an amazing 22 Hz thanks to two long excursion six-inch drivers powered by a 1200-watt amplifier. The technology involved in moving so much air with these two small drivers is pretty interesting. Sunfire uses an advanced amplifier design that averages about 120 watts, but can produce up to 1200 watts when necessary, feeding horizontally opposed drivers. One driver is passive; both have long excursions that permit the displacement of large amounts of air, the true key to ...

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 ...

Belles Audio Nearfield Desktop System (BAND)
Introduction The Belles Audio Nearfield Desktop System, known as BAND, is a complete two- channel audio system consisting of two satellites and one subwoofer, powered by an amplifier encased in the subwoofer. Also included are a manual preamplifier/switcher and remote control. At $1,995.00, this system can be configured for a variety of nearfield applications. Upon unpacking this system, I was first impressed with the care and effort that went into the construction of the enclosures. There are three finishes available: natural cherry, medium oak and natural maple. The corners are rounded and the wood grain is seamless. Finishing touches include a black lacquer bottom and floor spikes for the subwoofer, as well as black lacquer backs and rubber pads for the bottom of the satellites. As I continued my unpacking, I noticed that all of the cables necessary to get this system up and running were included – and not the cheap cables you find with ...
