Revel Studio2s still in the Full Range Class A section and still the least expensive by far.

Kal, you've reviewed the Studio2s, right?
Although I know it's been a while, what's your view on them needing a pair of subs to "fill in" the bottom end?
Thanks
I thought GoldenEar Truton Reference was the cheapest Class A loudspeaker.

Seeing the Instagram story on the new sub did make me happy that I blew my fun money on other stuff instead of immediately buying a sub earlier this year.

That’s a better video than what was on instagram. Thank you.

It is interesting, though. It looks like they’ve removed the dsp bass correction, as well as the crossover.

Neither of those things were necessary for my setup, but I’m curious to know what drove that change.

I have a CD of Berliner Philharmonike performing Symphony No. 6 (Tchaikovsky) and it has long been a favored part of my library. However, this 5.1 mix of Berliner Philharmonike performing Symphony No. 6 is more immersive and the various instrumental groups are more distinct and spatially euphonic.

Everybody in the music business; consumer, HW and SW creators, and the artists would find a monetarily invigorated hobby/business were “they” to produce more high quality multi-channel material. And not necessarily including video.

More than two Revel speakers are more enjoyable than two Revel speakers. That is why this topic is relative to this thread.

Doesn't sound like it. I didn't use to care all that much until I went through what I did with my Elac towers from Amazon.

It's rather confusing, isn't it. Near the top of that page:
Revel products are available online at only these Authorized Dealers

Audiolab
Cruthchfield
ListenUp
Hidef Lifestyles
Starpower
World Wide Stereo


This would seem to state that these are authorized dealers and that a purchase would carry the warranty. But lower on the page:


Purchase Policy

Harman’s policy is to honor product warranties and to perform services only on Harman Luxury Audio products (of the following brands: Mark Levinson, Revel, JBL Synthesis, and Lexicon) purchased from authorized Harman Luxury Audio dealers or distributors (“Dealers”) located in the United States (including its territories) and Canada and only when accompanied by a receipt or proof of purchase.
Dealers are NOT permitted to sell Harman Luxury Audio products online.
If you purchase a Harman Luxury Audio product online, or if the original factory serial number has been removed, defaced or altered, your Harman Luxury Audio warranty will not be valid.


So, color me confused. Also, nothing on the page says anything about whether the warranty is transferable.

There will be reviews coming in Stereophile of both the Persona 3F's and F228Bes.


Wait until you see the spin data for both speakers.

I find it funny the aesthetics of the Revel PerformaBE and Paradigm Persona are switched between tower and bookshelf lines.

The 228BE tower has this gigantic wide baffle whereas the Persona towers are pretty lean with slender lines.

But the M126Be bookshelf has this nice and lean baffle whereas the Persona bookshelf is this gigantic fat whale.

And re: the 228BE resale value. It's kind of limited by the fact that Studio2s sell for about 6-8k and Salon2s sell for 9-10.5k. So 6k is much closer to the ceiling that you can price a used 228BE.

I know nothing about the 3F but it is possible that another reviewer is looking at them.
I am expecting the F228Be any day now but I have been saying that for a while.

Happy Friday!

Friday afternoon coffee break. Listening to the Afro Cuban Allstars on my M126Be's. Great horns, great piccolo (when do you hear that?), live quality vocals, wide and deep soundstage. Sounds like i'm listening in a small club in Cuba...just missing the drink...work to do still today, or I'd solve that last problem...Happy Friday!

Lol, no dinky wall-mounted surrounds for you, I see! I'm with you, as I use tower speakers for my surrounds, albeit not on the scale of yours. I love hearing that full range sound coming out of them.

I started in the hi-fi biz back in the mid-70's. I first set up a surround system with little Mirage satellites about 15-20 years ago. They were less than satisfying. I've been back and forth over the years with sats and towers for surrounds. My last system used Magnepan MC1's for surrounds and rears (ca. 2007 up to last year). I liked their height but not the lack of low end, and decided to try towers again all the way around when I changed to Revel last year (Salon2 fronts, F206 surrounds and rears). I needed to lift my F206's about 6", but these were a better (albeit much more expensive) solution to raising the tweeters. The last of the mahogany Salon2's and a great price goaded me to go waaay overboard, with the benefit of a loving wife who encourages my music hobby (she knew it when we were married over 30 years ago and I had a pretty high-end system then). She understands these will likely be my last set of reference speakers. My big Maggies (MG-IIIa's) are from 1988 and were used until last year. We hope to retire in another 7-8 years -- won't be money for new toys after that! We've also lost a lot of folk in the past couple of years (parents, cousins, and most recently our 17 yo Lab) and are buying and doing some things while we can and before we regret not doing them. Both kids are out of the house (since May), she likes to travel, I like my sound system. Monetarily she's still ahead but I get to travel and come home to great sound -- win-win!

For music I like them as-is. For movies I would probably put them a little higher, but can live with them as-is, and they are pretty heavy to lift. Kevin said to go with Salon2's; Floyd suggested Gem2's in my room, maybe I should get a set of them and switch back and forth. (Not happening, John!) This hobby is made for the insane; it drives me crazy, but it's a short drive. I am quite happy with what I have now for speakers and that is by far my biggest investment. They are gorgeous to look at as well as listen to; way more than I ever expected to have. Sometimes I go down and just look -- long time since a fairly rough childhood, and a lot of long hours led to being able to afford something like this. Working with John and Joel (and now Rex is in the fold) has been great; they are breath of fresh air compared to many other dealers. I imagine Steve and others are just as great but do feel blessed to have John just a few miles down the road.

Yah, I'm cheap. Original (Gen1) Emotiva XPA-2 for front L/R; Emotiva XPA-5 for center, surrounds, rears. I had planned to pick up some Brystons or something, but when I set up the system it was first time I had set up a new system in quite a while, and sticker shock was severe. The Emotiva's are working well for me; I'd rather put the money into speakers or something than buy new amps. The processor is also Emotiva, XMC-1, with the new video board. They finally released a new FW update I hope to try tonight to see if it fixes the Dolby Vision issues many (including me) have had with Oppo players and newer LG OLED TVs.

The room is a little crowded but not as bad since pulling some wall treatments and rearranging the speakers. And I don't care, they sound awesome.

The 17' x 23' x 10' HT in my basement had 50 acoustic panels. It was too dead. I should have removed a fair amount of absorption and used more diffusion. The room sounded very unnatural when you walked in.

It did sound great with music and movies though. Wish I could go back and try it with less treatment and Salon2's, the room itself was exceptional.

Is anyone here running F208’s on a tube amp? The PrimaLuna Dialogue Premium HP amp or integrated amp has me interested.
