Origin Acoustics speakers

I checked out Origin Acoustics speakers at Cedia this year. They have quite a few inwall speakers. Since judging speaker by looking at them is just as effective as judging wine by looking at the bottle, they sent me some to check out.

I set up the Origin Acoustics speakers they sent me in their back boxes and checked them out with some jazz CD's I had. First I tested the D65's. These speakers are packaged very nicely.

I like that the speaker is aim-able too -

" The woofer and tweeter can be pivoted to direct the sound towards the listening area. Or for a more diffused surround sound experience, the rear speakers can be aimed towards the wall. To aim the tweeter, gently apply pressure to the rim with your thumbs to pivot the tweeter. To aim the woofer, gently apply pressure to the rim and pivot it in the desired direction. Subject to which speaker is being used, there are two switches: one to adjust the treble, and one to adjust the bass. Depending on the area the speaker will be installed, bass and treble are affected by its surroundings. When the room has a lot of hard surfaces bass & treble are bounced and reflected through the room, and if the room has softer surfaces the bass & treble are absorbed. Adjust for the desired acoustic balance for each room. "

I set these up like as a stereo pair in back boxes on my dining room chairs, and put some jazz CD's on. The detail is excellent. I actually heard details in the song " Kaya " ( Monty Alexander's CD " Stir It Up " - Telarc Jazz stereo cd ) I don't hear with my Mirage speakers !

Next up were the D85's. They are 3 way speakers and have a mid range speaker. Overall these sounded a little fuller in the mid range than the D65's, and played a little deeper due to the 8" woofer. Specs -

I sat some friends down to get their opinion on how they thought these speakers sounded. Everyone really liked them. One friend liked them so much he bought them on the spot !

Nice looking magnetic grill too. I recommend these speakers ! They sounded really good in my opinion.

I got the D61's installed by my home builder; I have no idea if they suck or not.

House will be done in Jan.

I guess I can always replace them if they are bad.

I have been unable to find any reviews on them.

😎It's just life, dude. We are all gonna die sometime--Might as well try and have a kickass time while we're still here.😜

I’ll bet they sound good. The D65’s I demo’d sounded great.

They are the cheapest model in that series, and the cheapest option from the builder. I am not expecting much. LoL
