Since there doesn't seem to be a thread dedicated to this fine speaker line, and I am now a Revel F-52 owner I thought it would be a good idea to start an owner's thread for these speakers.
As an introduction Revel was the speaker line of the former Madrigal company which was acquired by the Harman Specialty Group, the high end division of Harman International.
The Revel line is most heavily influenced by two well - known designers, Dr. Floyd Toole who earned his reputation at Canada's NRC, where much of the science of modern speaker design was laid out (and where many well-known Canadian speaker companies got their start) and by Kevin Voecks who has won respect for designs at Mirage and Snell prior to coming to Revel.
The F-52 I own is the latest generation of the high end model in the Performa line; the middle range betwen the Revel Concertas and Ultimas.
June 2, 2011. Since I wrote this first post in 2011 I have added more Revel models to my collection. These are:
A pair of I30's purchased used. I currently have these in storage however I recently have decided to install these in my kitchen.
A pair of M-22's which form my bedroom stereo system. These in conjunction with a Squeezebox server form a truly wonderful alarm clock.
A pair of Revel Ultima Studio 2's which are replacing the F-52's I have had for 5 years now.
Edit Jan 10 2012: I have sold my Performa 52's, and there is now a new generation - the Performa 3's. See this
