FLUANCE SIGNATURE SERIES HI-FI THREE-WAY FLOORSTANDING SPEAKERS REVIEW

Read Here

 

“The Fluance Signature Series Floorstanding speakers certainly provide a serious value. Pound for pound these speakers provide a serious amount of hardware for a low price. These speakers do well at high volumes, and can take significant power. While they are large and heavy Fluance did save some money with the cabinets, using a lower priced finish and going light on the internal bracing has made the sound suffer somewhat.”

Polk Signature S60 Speaker System $1,600Review

Read Here

 

 

“I always prefer to begin my listening with full-range stereo auditions, straight no chaser (and no subwoofer). So I cued up “Straight, No Chaser”—a hard-driving version of the Thelonious Monk classic by B3 lunatic Dr. Lonnie Smith (via Tidal) on my Oppo BDP-105D player. Drummer Johnathan Blake’s busy cymbal rides and aggressive snare fills sounded excellently airy and lifelike, while the good Doctor’s percussive organ riffs carried that peculiarly Hammond-tonian note-attack puff, and some gurgly grit when a handful of low notes collided, to underline realism. And this persisted at lifelike levels: The S60s had no trouble producing real-club levels without compromising the lower-frequency clarity and dynamics necessary to convey Smith’s B3 barrage.”

MARTINLOGAN MOTION 40 FLOORSTANDING SPEAKERS REVIEW

Read Here

 

The Motion 40 cabinet comes with adjustable spikes to help decouple the cabinet from the floor. I recommend the spikes for absolute best sound, but the speaker also comes with soft dome feet for those homes where the floor is not carpeted. The Motion 40 has terminals for single or bi-wiring. Although the speaker will work fine with single wire, there are advantages sonically to bi-wiring and or bi-amping. Eliminating the common ground from the mid-range/tweeter driver and the bass drivers will deliver better sound by improving the amp to speaker electrical relationship, and avoiding any detrimental interface between the crossovers. Bi-amping will allow the listener to add an additional stereo amp or pair of mono block amps for better power reserve and improved dynamics.”

RSL CG3 5.2 Home Theater Speaker System Review

Read Here

 

 

“You’d think the neutral, even response would have been the first thing I noticed about the RSL CG3 system once serious listening began in earnest. And perhaps it would have been, if not for the speakers’ big, bold, size-defying sound. To call it “room-filling” wouldn’t be saying much, since any reasonably mid-level sub/sat system can pretty easily fill my 13- by 15- by 8-foot listening space with sound. “Room-saturating” would be a more apt descriptor. The first disc I threw at the system was The Ultimate Edition of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (Warner Home Video), since I had just recently auditioned the opening scenes using the same receiver and two significantly larger speaker systems in the same room.”

KEF R50 Dolby Atmos speaker review

Read Here

 

“What I found truly remarkable, though, was the reach of the Atmos channel. Typically, rival Dolby boxes tend to attenuate at distance. However, I could sit the R50s on the front speakers a good 3.5m away from my couch and still enjoy an excellent sense of height. The overall soundstage was spacious (the Dolby Atmos demo clip Amaze offers grin-inducing insect effects) and naturalistic.”

PSB IMAGINE XA DOLBY ATMOS ENABLED SPEAKERS REVIEW

“The visual effects of San Andreas alone are worth seeing the film. The storyline plays a subservient role to the effects, no doubt. There are many scenes with action around you; driving through a building with a tunnel effect, buildings falling overhead and naturally, the preverbal helicopters flying above you.”
