Jamo S 809 Speaker System Review

Midrange detail was quite good as well, but a slightly constricted or pinched tonality to the lower midrange required further investigation. I heard it on the same track, where Coolidge’s inimitably husky contralto lost a degree of its resonant chest-tone body, and confirmed it in direct comparisons with my everyday monitors on other voices as well. (These are long-discontinued Energy 2.3 standmount three-ways, which, were they still available, would cost at least twice as much as the entire Jamo system.) For example, I heard the shift to a thinner/more astringent midrange fairly notably on a track by bluegrass alto Noah Wall (from an HDtracks sampler) singing the traditional “Down by the Riverside.” He sounded almost like a different, more sharply nasal singer.”

Acoustic Energy 100 Series 5.1 System Review

There is also a well judged sense of refinement that helps this sense of being able to listen to them for long periods. Acoustic Energy speakers of old could tend towards the thrilling but at the expense of being a little fatiguing when used long term. The present generation is undoubtedly a little smoother and softer but this makes them rather easier to live with and the balancing act has been worked sufficiently well that this is still a lively and dynamic set of speakers to listen to. The Thunder Hollow demolition derby in Cars 3 has a sense of life and, well, energy that is extremely encouraging. Really push them to stupid levels and they harden up a little but not chronically so and certainly no worse than their rivals.”

OCAL SIB EVO DOLBY ATMOS® SPEAKER SYSTEM $1299 REVIEW

Read Here

“The Atmos effect from these ceiling aimed speakers was obvious, but it doesn’t completely measure up to the output of ceiling mounted speakers. How could it? That’s not to say that the height channels don’t work. They do. And when the movie mix directed sounds above my head I could clearly hear the effect. When listening to a soundtrack mastered for Atmos, there is a definite sweet spot to get the height effect, and it worked for even two people listening, but I don’t think a person further off axis would get the full immersion. As I moved out of my ideal centered position in the room, the height effect dropped off. That’s more an observation than a criticism, and I should emphasize it’s what I heard in my room acoustics. Other rooms may have a different result.”

BH Sound SV-661R Bookshelf Speaker Review

Read Here

 

If you are a lover of jazz, acoustic, classical, opera, or vocal-centric music, you will find RBH Sound’s SV-661R to be a very satisfying speaker. It has excellent soundstaging, with accurate layering and positioning of players on that stage. Because of its proprietary AMT driver, the SV-661R delivers beautiful timbres/tonality/colors in the very important midrange and treble regions. This tonality is delivered in a slightly warm/silky way that allows you to relax into the music, but it doesn’t get in the way of transparency or micro-details. Plus, the physical appearance of the SV-661R speaker is quite attractive, and its rather small size makes it easy to place in most listening spaces.”
