Though my system by no means is high end. I was looking to get the most bang for my buck. I have tried all speaker brands: Boston, Mirage, Klipsch (higher end line), Definitive Technology, Polk (high end line), B&W, Energy, Focal/JM Lab, KEF and so on.
Before I get into talking about the swans and my experience. I will tell you out all the speakers I tried when upgrading my Definitive Technology SM450 speakers and C2002 center channel, I liked Focal, Boston Acoustic and Polks LSi line of speakers. I was really close to buying the Boston VR3 series but came across people talking about Swan speakers and how they are a good bang for the buck. I was in the market to spend 2k on the front two speakers and also buy a matching center channel. My needs were to be great with 5.1 (movies) and the most important 2 channel audio for music.
Researching and talking with a few Swan owners, I was ready to give the Swan Diva 6.1 a try. I knew I was taking the risk in buying something that I have not heard and when it comes to buying speakers, auditioning them is the most important thing you can do! I took the plunge and ordered them from newegg as they were going for a great price. The only draw back is that they were not returnable! So I was really taking a risk!
I must say that my decision to buy the Swans was a great one! I could not be more than happy with them! They produce great lows and the mids and highs are great as well. They were the type of speaker that I was looking for to fulfill my needs in both categories! The most important was for music. The Swans cover music listening very well and very surprised how well they can handle the lows! I have these speakers hooked up via bi-wiring on my Panasonic and have the receiver set to bi-wire and bi-amping mode. All in all these are a great bang for the buck and compare very close a lot of higher end speakers. I am very happy with them!
As you will read over time, everyone will have their own opinion and taste for speakers. I will repeat this again and say that you must listen before you buy, unless you are risky and want to take a chance like I did. You can not go wrong with these speakers. It is a shame that there are not many people out there owning such a great product. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask.
Do you guys still carry the subwoofers? I may be looking to replace my subwoofer. How is the subwoofer line?
