Evidently, Dennis Erskine is working on three rooms at Triad's Cooperate office...........................one for R&D demo, two others for customers, dealers and reps. Sorry..............no pictures..............

The room I demoed speakers will be engineering room for research and development as engineering staff sits adjacent to room. First, demo was set up listening to Atmos enabled In-room Bronze LR-H speakers which were first demoed during CEDIA 2015.........I was also privy to view similar In Room Silver LR-H. Actually, I was quite shocked with quality of sound for these relatively inexpensive speakers........set up was with 8 Silver subs so bass was very clean, punchy...........very effective.

Demo room was actually the same size as mine......................well, very close. 25 ft by 19 ft by 10.5 ft.......................just two feet wider than my room, and half a foot shorter. Acoustic treatments have been set up by Dennis and I was surprised with all the hard surfaces still exposed, but room sounded clean, crisp, open and dialogue was extremely clear. Steve Colburn, Product Development and Traing at Triad confessed he had done calibration earlier morning and calibration was not perfect.......................I can assure you, with all the demo rooms I've seen in the last three years, system founded fine!

Went through demo of various material, switching in and out of Atmos, DSU, and regular 7.1........................................Atmos makes a HUGE difference, so does DSU compared to run of the mill configuration ie. 7.1. I've seen only one Atmos movie at theater................this was my first home demo of Atmos since I wasn't able to make it to CEDIA this year.

My impressions, 90% of AVS members would be happy with Bronze system with it's eight Silver subs..............but the Cinema Reference 7.1 demo with prototype 21" subs would most definitely please remaining last 10% including ME!!!

I've auditioned and considered purchasing many different expensive speakers like full blown Proaudio Technology system.............Triad Plats..................but these Triad Cinema Reference speakers are in a whole new WORLD!!! Cinema Reference system was set up as 7.1 including fore-mentioned 4 prototype 21" subs. The AMT horn loaded tweeter is something else..............didn't listen to system at ear splitting levels, but at levels I'm comfortable with. I'm a ribbon guy............but ribbons can't deliver dynamics...................the horn loaded AMT tweeter in Cinema Reference speaker give the signature sound of a true ribbon, but are much, much more capable in dynamics! Definitely a reference speaker for high end rooms!!

As far as my situation goes ie. Atmos speakers for my application.....................nothing mass marketed...........but am looking at custom design to meet my specific needs. Triad is only speaker manufacturer I know of in market place willing or can do that! Two thumbs up for TRIAD and Dennis Erskine for giving me opportunity to solve my Atmos speaker dilemma.
I have been waiting for a while to hear this review. Thanks DW.

Would someone please alert the classified dept that BrolicBeast will be calling soon with his Triad Cinema Plat ad.

Also send work to Triad that BB will be coming to visit for a Cinema Reference demo. They may also want to start production pf his set of speakers.

While we are making calls please notify Nyal at Acoustic Designs that there maybe some acoustical alterations to BB's design and Big Mouth in DC might need to do some framing alterations.

Lololol....I trieddddddd to swing the cinema reference speakers, but someone with very close ties to Triad said they weren't made for a room my size, and there would be a hiss coming from them due to proximity to the first row (they are meant for the theaters of the rich and famous--I.e. 40' long, 30' wide, with very, very ceiling heights (I think double wing might be a candidate...his pre-cloud ceiling height is crazy). So I abandoned the notion, instead of scraping my pennies and my left arm to afford those bad boys.

Those speakers are monstrous!
