I have never heard or seen Triad speakers here in NZ, Im only going from what I read.....
I find the Klipsch kind of bright, not warm enough with the four SVS PB13 Ultras I have. I really want a better match. Something better for the fronts...
Anyone please pitch in if you can add anything here...
When I listened to Triad Silver speakers I found them to have a very wide, dynamic sound stage and the high frequencies were non fatiguing, laid back, and smooth. The best way I could describe them would be: "natural" and "uncolored." Great for listening to music for extended periods. Dialog was clear and easy to understand. I find most consumer grade Klipsch speakers to be harsh and grating and irritating to listen to after a few minutes... like nails on a chalkboard. The sound is quite colored and it only gets worse as you raise the volume to "movie listening" levels.
With the debut of object based surround like Dolby Atmos, my advice would be to upgrade your surrounds to matching Silver monopole in-walls as well, so you have proper timbre matching. Triad should be showing new Atmos friendly speaker models at the CEDIA Expo in September, so it might be worth waiting for these announcements.
I believe you would be quite happy with a switch to the Triad brand... and no, I didn't get paid to state this.
Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!
