Triad R28 In-ceiling vs new Triad Distributed Audio Series

Hi guys,

Getting some multi-room audio installed - had planned on installing R28s in-ceilings to each of the rooms in the house to serve this function.

Triad Distributed Audio series speakers have just become available - not had a chance to listen to yet.

Anyone on the forum can comment on how these compare to the older R28s?

Ta,

The new ones are supposed to sound better and have more installation-friendly features.

Probably the 2.

Triad’s IC82 speaker offers homeowners the refined, musical quality of Triad speakers for their whole home. This speaker is built around a reinforced poly-mica woofer for superior bass and an aimable Tetoron-dome tweeter for a full, natural sound.

All Distributed Audio Series 2 speakers are voice / timbre matched—allowing homeowners to mix and match speakers within the series to meet the needs of each room while providing identical tonal qualities throughout the home.

Distributed Audio Series 2 speakers ship with white, round, frameless grills that are low profile and look great. The grill attaches to the speaker via hidden neodymium magnets embedded in the speaker baffle for fast installation and a snug custom finished fit. Custom paint-matched round or square grills are available separately and painted at the factory for a perfect finish that blends seamlessly with any interior design.

Pivoting tweeter
With up to 10 degrees of movement, the pivoting tweeter delivers high-quality audio to the listener’s position and offers flexible installation options.

Poly-mica woofer
Mica-infused polypropylene offers a strengthened cone material with increased rigidity and a high stiffness-to-weight ratio—while still maintaining the dampening properties of a traditional polypropylene woofer.

Voice matched
All Distributed Audio Series 2 speakers are voice matched—allowing homeowners to mix and match speakers within the series to meet the needs of each room, while providing identical tonal qualities throughout the home.

Magnetic mounting
Low-profile frameless grills attach to the speaker with hidden neodymium magnets for fast installation and a snug fit.
Custom paint-matching is available.

Easy install
Using a tried-and-tested traditional Triad mounting system with reinforced threaded brass inserts, Distributed Audio Series speakers install in seconds and will stay snug to the mounting surface for the life of the system.
High-quality spring clamps make connecting speaker wires simple and quick, while the magnetic frameless grill fits flush to the mounting surface with ease. Additionally, the tweeter bridge doubles as a durable handle, making it easier to hold during installation.
