Default Re: Breaking in my Revel Salon2's!!!!!

J.J.

I think you'll find most of the writer/reviewers for this magazine listen to 'real' music.

I am working on a review of the new Definitive Technologies Mythos ST towers (got four of 'em) and their Mythos ten center and was just airing them out to Iron Maiden Piece of Mind and Jimi Hendrix Electric Ladyland (Disc 2). After hounding Jerry about Rainy Day, Dream Away I had to hear it!

Glad to hear we found a fellow audio guy in you!

Jerry, hope your ears have rested (lord knows mine needed it after Iron Maiden well over 100 dBs....)

Ken

Its too early to come out with anything specific.

The bass on the Revels are better/deeper. The look and finish on the Wilsons are better. The Wilsons don't need as much power. In my room the Revel's are taller which helps for the stadium seating (only 6 inches)

I need to do some more listening and I spoke with Bob Hodas who is coming to town soon and will tune my Revels. My Wilsons were all dialed in with EQ for my room. The Revels will have that soon too.

In the end - its like "what is better the Porsche or the Ferrari?" How do you answer that? The Ferrari is more sexy. The Porsche doesn't break as often. For me, I am just blessed to be able to have owned them both.

Only in FLA does a car get you pussy.

Out here EVERYBODY has a fast car.

If you want to get laid - you need to be a director, an agent or casting a new movie (even if you are shooting it on your video camera)

Dude,

When I was single I went out in shorts and T-Shirts (well, when in FL) and got the best tail in the bar! I would dress in the obligatory black for clubs and never could work it there as I couldn't hear anything.... My game is best played verbally.
