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

I just took my Wilsons down, disengaged the EQs and setup my new Revel system.

I love the height of the Revels in my slight stadium seating environment. There is no question, they have more bass (outside of the sub in my system)

I am rocking some "Gypsy Eyes" from Electric Ladyland - LOUD!!!! Sounds pretty good.

Will have Bob Hodas over to do my room again which will cost me some GOOD wine - at a minimum!!!!

The Helicopter transition into "Another Brick in the Wall part 2" was pretty impresive.

I hope my Levinsons are powerful enough for these speakers as I am at 95 on my Meridian - which is LOUD. I miss my Krell Evolution amps. They had balls the size of watermellons.

Great depth of field on "Mother" with the organ in the background!!!

The bass guitar and bass drum havea LOT of spank to them. I am digging it. Lights are dim and the only light in the room is from my MacBook Pro

I am LOVING my Crestron control of my Lutron Grafix Eye. I can get the lights SO LOW (but not off) that the soundstage JUMPS forward.

My brain thinks it sounds better - and that's all that matters right now.
