post #1861 of 3154
So I was listening to my EMP's and I just want to agree with Ousooner in his talks with EMP saying that the top end has a bit to much roll off.

So I really wanted to turn of audyssey and listen to the speakers in there purist form. Now for me Audyssey only really corrects the high end rolloff (I don't have the graphs in front of me to give the exact range, I think its above 1khz? I could be wrong)

SO I listned to some music and a few movie tracks that I know very well with audyssey off. Now for me having this speakers nearly 6 months I know what to expect from them.

I thought it sounded great, I spent a good hour listening to them with audyssey off just enjoying them in there birthday suits so to speak. I had not listened to them at all prior that day so I had "fresH" ears so to speak. I knew it sounded different, but it was good. They were very mellow and still plenty of detail, however I noticed voices were a bit in the background, vocals were not as forward as I knew they should have been.

SO after I spent some good time with audyssey off (Imaging etc still remained on par not much really changed to my ears initially) I decided to turn audyssey back on.

That rolloff on the top end really hurts the speakers, However I think if you had unbiased ears you would not care, my time without audyssey was still quite enjoyable, I did not th ink it was bad nor did I think anything sounded off they still had great detail and imaging.

With audyssey back on and boosting that top end suddenly vocals had a little more vibrance in there, the subtle plucks on a guitar were now more prominent, individualization were easier noticed.. I guess it would be the equivilant of removing a slightly hazey filter from in front of your TV...

It sounds worse than it is with me explaining it , and as I said compared to some other speakers ive heard they really hold their own.. however I think they would greatly benefit from that bit of boost in the high end.

The roll off starts at 10k. It's about 10-20db if I remember correctly. Audyssey definitely helps to put some "air" into the system.

Just went back and looked at my graph it starts around 8k or so looking at my graph

I recieved my EMP1010i sub on Friday and moved it down to my theater this weekend. For about an hour, I did essentially an A/B comparison between it and the Klipsch RW 12d....music and a couple scenes from some dynamic movies. My impressions...

1. As anyone who owns the EMPs already knows, the finish on all the Impression series products is just outstanding. Very beautiful speaker!
2. As some of you suggested to me about a month ago, the Klipsch has greater overall output and hits harder on explosions and other dynamic content.
3. The EMP sub is more laid back, but while subtle, still packs a very good punch. Much less punchy that the Klipsch. Had no trouble filling my 12 x25 foot room! Gotta get a rug in front of it, however!
4. The EMP sub just blends better with the soundtrack. It is almost like the sub gives the EMP towers better bass, you just don't notice the bass is coming from the sub!
5. The EMP sub really excelled for music. Just loved the deep texture if gave to several Pink Floyd tracks and man, it brought the low end of some Mozart alive!

I didn't realize there was an EMP thread and I should contribute something to it, so here's a review I did not long ago.

I'm a solidly mid-fi sort of guy. I left the high end audio world behind about a dozen years ago and never looked back. I appreciate great sound but I've given up on the obsession. It was pointless and expensive. My home theater is what some would call modest and others would call middle-of-the-road. You can see a picture of it here with my new EMP Impressions E55TiB main speakers. With that background I offer some personal impressions of these speakers.




You did what?, asked my wife. I ordered some new speakers for the home theater. Why? Because I think they will sound better than what we use now. But you don't know? Not until I set them up and hear them. You're nuts, she said. She's probably right.


Why EMP? It's hard to say. I thought they were nice looking and not so large that my wife would want them sent to the speaker graveyard. They were designed by people at a fine speaker company, made in China for high value and then sold direct to the public without any middle man markups. Seemed like a deal, so I ordered a pair in black to match my HT furniture. They arrived yesterday by Fedex and arrived in their double boxed glory without a single scratch.


Setup is just a matter of attaching the enclosed feet to the bottom of the cabinets and wiring them up. I used the rubber feet for my wood floor but they also include spikes if you have carpeting. I had two issues with the setup. The first is that one of the blind nuts for attaching the feet to the cabinet was missing so the screw had nothing into which to screw. I'm not sure what to do about it. I will probably just drill a new hole and put a wood screw in it. The other issue was the binding posts. My preference for speaker wire is to use tinned bare wire rather than connectors. My preference is for the binding posts that have a hole through them to get the strongest possible connection. These binding posts don't have such a hole and aren't what I like personally. Also, the binding posts aren't color coded so you want to be careful to phase them correctly. The speakers are not bi-wireable or bi-ampable, by the way. That is no issue for me but it might be for others.


The speakers are about 4 feet high, a foot deep and 8 1/2” wide in front. The cabinets are curved and, in the case of mine, covered in glossy black wood grain composition veneer. The fronts sport a piano black finish and include grills which are not shown in the image. The system employs 3 6 1/2” woofers for the bass and a pair of 5 1/4” midrange drivers with a 1” fabric dome tweeter in an MTM configuration for the higher frequencies. There are two rear firing ports. The cost is $695 for the pair shipping included to the 48 states.


So how do they sound? Basically I would say they are pretty neutral. There is nothing “in your face” about the presentation but they aren't particularly laid back either. The bass is controlled and tight, the midrange is spectacular and I thought the speakers would sound better with a second tweeter apiece but that is just a matter of preference. My ancient ears appreciate a little brightness in the presentation.


The bass is not loud but extends enough to reproduce the E string on an electric bass with authority. I didn't feel the need to use a subwoofer. I liked the way they played my kind of music all by themselves and that, of course, is the goal with any full range tower speaker. I don't listen to much rock. I am mostly a jazz enthusiast so I don't need bass that reminds me of a woofer laden car approaching from a quarter mile away. I like my bass tight and neutral and I liked the way the Impressions handled it.


They will play loud without falling into a frenzy of distortion. My wife continually asked me turn things down during my listening sessions and she wasn't in the same room. That tells me that they remained clean well up the db scale. I didn't feel any serious vibration from the cabinets by touching them and didn't hear anything that I would describe as serious cabinet resonance. Nor did I detect a serious mid bass rise. All in all they are pretty neutral.


Do they compete with expensive high end speakers? No, of course not, but I think they will outperform anything you can hear at our local Best Buy and will hold their own with most speakers in the under $2000 per pair price category. They sound great and, considering the entry level price of $695 per pair, they sound spectacular. Finding something that sounds as good as these for under $1000 per pair would be a serious challenge.


I haven't run the calibration to integrate these speakers into the home theater yet. My listening has all been CD's played through my Panasonic Blu Ray player and Pioneer Elite VSX-92 AV receiver set to the stereo pure direct mode. Here are some random impressions.


I started with “I've Been to Memphis” on Lyle Lovett's Joshua Loves Ruth CD. It starts with a guitar then adds drums and then the bass guitar before Lovett starts singing. The bass guitar is punchy and authoritative and the Impressions reproduced it nicely. The snare drum was crisp and quick. No sibilance in Lovett's voice.


The next track was “Black and Blue” from the Gene Harris Quartet CD of the same name. I like Gene's stuff because he plays something like my all time favorite jazz artist, the late Oscar Peterson. His drummer has one of the most beautiful Zildjian ride cymbals I've ever heard and I thought that cymbal might give me a feeling for the performance of the tweeter. It did and the tweeter handled it pretty well. I could easily hear the sticks colliding with the brass and the cymbal sounded as beautiful as ever.


My pop music choice was “It's Growing” from James Taylor's Covers CD. Taylor normally sings his own compostions but this album has him singing “covers” or his version of other peoples' compostions. It is extremely well recorded and mixed. As someone who has done some recording myself, the quality of this recording nearly brings tears to my eyes. Here I was listening for the sound of brass. This track has a trumpet in the mix and the Impressions midrange drivers reproduced it perfectly. That's what motivated me to call the midrange spectacular above.


Finally on to some difficult classical music. One of the most difficult instruments to reproduce in my view is the harpsichord. Unlike a piano that has a hammer which strikes the strings, the harpsichord plucks the strings. That plucking sound should be apparent in any good recording. I used the Bach Quartet in A Minor as source material and was impressed that the Impressions delivered that sound of the plectra against the strings without any difficulty. In other words they are quite revealing and accurate and amazingly so for their modest price.


So my conclusion is that the EMP Impressions are keepers for my mid fi system and something I would recommend without any reservation to someone looking for a pair of entry level speakers. These are priced like entry level speakers but they have the look and sound of speakers a level up the food chain. They are worth every nickel of the purchase price. Time to get busy integrating them into the rest of the home theater. Go get a pair. You'll see what I mean.

Hey guys, does anyone own the EW35 on walls? How are they? I am looking at getting a LCR setup with these possibly.

Thanks!

I do, I like them a lot and think they would be excellent for lcr. I am going to use them as height speakers above my projector screen, but have not gotten them mounted yet as they are beasts. I will post back with a shot after it is done. The other front speakers/sub are emp powered by a Yamaha 867.

I'd agree with all of this. My two ES1010s go great with my other EMP Tek. Besides being pretty sexy and a nice match with the other speakers, it's nice tight bass, not overbearing, no resonance that I can detect, nice and solid. As I've previously mentioned, there's certainly better subs out there, but you'll be paying more for them from one of the specialty companies. These subs are no slouch, though. They'll rattle my whole twin home and make the windows sound like they're going to break.

I looked pretty hard at getting the Outlaw 12 inch sub...but not only was it more expensive (549.00 versus 399.00), but it was going to cost another 70 buck to ship. Which meant it was 200 dollars more. For the room size I have (12x25 ish), the EMP will be fine...

What do you guys think? I'm currently running a 7.2 system with 2 E55Ti Tower Speakers and E56Ci Center Channel. I've been working on saving up the extra cash to purchase the E55Wi Surround On-wall Speakers to complete my set. But I was wondering if I could save like 500 dollars by jumping on the Newegg labor day sale with Klipsch Synergy S-20 Premium WDST Surround Speakers Pair. Just not sure how compatible they are with the EMPs?

E55Wi Surround On-wall Speaker / x2 = $890
Or
Klipsch Synergy S-20 Premium WDST Surround Speakers Pair / x2 = $398
post #1874 of 3154
Save the money and get the klipsch. I have them as my surrounds. Your surrounds are not important for timber matching as not that much comes from them. If I had the extra 500 dollars to do it, sure why not. That 500 can go somewhere else that would make a bigger difference.

I disagree... there is a massive difference here - not a small one.

I would suggest the e5Bi bookshelves as surrounds.
post #1876 of 3154
Honestly this is a really tough decision for me. I would really prefer to match the whole system with EMPs. Just wish the price was cheaper. If it was only 5.1 then the choice would be easier. But Needing to buy 4 Speakers is causing me to delay. Buy jumping on the Labor Day sale at Newegg is very tempting.

The E5Bi Bookshelf Speakers are out of stock. Are those even wall mountable? Because for my setup the need to be wall wall-mountable.

Yes they have keyholes in the back of them, and EMP sells wall-mounts designed specifically for them.
post #1879 of 3154
What do they normally sell them for? I can't sell the price Cuz they are out of stock.

Just out of curiosity why do you prefer the EMPs bookshelves over EMPs wall mount? Is it strictly because they are cheaper or do they perform better?

The E5Bi are $225/pair the last time I checked. Bipole versus monopole speakers for surround is a preference thing. Bipoles supposedly create a more enveloping sound, where as monopoles are more directed. You can visit the THX or Dolby sites to see how they recommend setting up the various surround types. I currently have the E5Bi as surrounds in my 4.1 (soon to be 5.1) setup and they work very well. They dissapear well and I feel the sound behind and beside me, but not from a specific point.
post #1881 of 3154
The Klipsch would do fine as surrounds, if you can live with the fact that they don't match the rest of your system.

Massive amount of difference???? Ha your kidding right? If A jet fly by real fast in a movie you are going to hear a massive difference between the surrounds and front stage? I think not. Don't give bad advice that could cost somebody 500 bux. There would be a super small difference, one that is not that noticeable or not noticeable at all. Only way you might be able to tell is playing 7 channels listening to music but who does that anyway.

Another reason to chose the klipsch and save money.

The only speakers in my system that are not EMP are my surrounds. Someday I will switch them, but there's no hurry. Conventional wisdom says keep everything the same, but I think it's a lot more important to match the fronts as pans from left to right should consistent.

I run a modified 7.1 with height speakers and the surrounds are almost never used. The surrounds are large, but not tall Polks, on the floor so the tweeters are about table height. In the battle scene at the beginning of Master and Commander, they roar in the return fire, but otherwise they mostly provide ambient noises. The main reason for doing this is that my couch has to be almost against the wall behind the projector, so no rear surrounds are possible. Also tv surround, especially sports can be gratuitous with a drunk guy yelling or someone clapping. I don't want that in my ear.

If I have all the speakers running for music, I'm usually not in the room.

Lol the drunk guys are funny. If you can't put the speakers on the wall behind you because of you couch location, have you ever thought about in-ceiling speakers?
post #1886 of 3154
The room is too small for the projector/screen size/couch/people. We are right behind the projector and the surrounds are just in front of our feet. There's rarely anything on the rear surrounds anyway. I prefer to have my speakers up front, mainly because the screen is so big, that way the height speakers become effective. So if my receiver supported rear heights and did 9.1....

If the next room/projector isn't an Oculus rift with dts headphone x, then I will probably looking at an 11.2 system or something ridiculously unnecessary.

Well after 7 full business days of shipping, which is absolutely absurd when shipping to the middle of the US (oklahoma), my Panny 65st60 should be here tomorrow. Been extremely hectic with the new baby girl (just turned a month old on Sept. 1st!...can't believe it!), we both got new cars, etc. Busy busy. Speakers are still doing great. Finally hooked up the center and surrounds today. They haven't been hooked up since a few weeks after I purchased the EMP's over Black Friday. Can't wait to rewatch some movies biggrin.gif (Hurt Locker comes to mind). I'll take some pics and maybe a video just for giggles

My brother got a set of the e55ti's last week and he's using a Pioneer 1028 I believe....Denon's Audyssey does such a good job lol. Crazy to see what Audyssey can do with room acoustics. I still don't understand why some people are so anti-dsp.

Congraqts on the new baby girl! My second girl will be here in about a month and a half.

Hurt locker is an awesome movie!

The agony of waiting for shipping. Checking the tracking number everyday to make sure nothing stupid happens and all the anticipation on the day it is suppose to be delivered only to get it really late (usually around 8pm from UPS to me). lol

Well congrats to you too!!

Yeah shipping has definitely been agony with this. The shipping company had it on Monday, Aug. 26th and it's now being delivered to me tomorrow (7 business days from CA to OK). They haven't updated their tracking since Thursday and STILL have the delivery date as today....even though they've told me it's going to be tomorrow. Took all day off, which isn't a big deal, but still annoying. At the end of the last call with them the lady asked me if I wanted to "set it up for tomorrow then" hahaha. Uh, yes...obviously. Sad thing is that it was in their warehouse by at least 9am this morning & it still didn't get delivered today. Sad sad sad
