As an audiophile, I hate to compromise on music reproduction anywhere in the house. So, when building my new home, I knew I was going to have both a dedicated listening room for 2 channel music and a dedicated theater for movies. So, in the rest of the house, WAF dictated that I would need to put speakers in the ceiling. No matter the location, I am always trying to get the best possible sound. After auditioning a number of in-ceiling speakers, some costing quite a bit more, I happened on a review of the Noble Fidelity L-85 in-ceiling speakers. I called Noble Fidelity, bought a pair with a 30 day return guarantee and a new pair of L-85's arrived on my porch the next day! We did a shoot-out by installing the speakers in the ceiling and listening. I picked the Noble Fidelity L-85's and I am really happy with them. Granted, I haven't heard every in-ceiling speaker, but to me, the Noble Fidelity L-85's sound way better than all of the other in-ceiling speakers I have heard. They have responsive, yet tight and musical bass for an in-ceiling, sound detailed, yet natural and organic. This helps them integrate into all different types of rooms, some with really horrible acoustics, yet the L-85's still manage to sound amazingly good. If you are looking for in-ceiling speakers that sound really good, as unbelievable as that sounds, put them on your list of speakers to audition.
