    Re: Any Revel owners?

    Craig, the F52's are great speakers ! Revel speakers definitely sound better than anything remotely close in price, and even better then a lot of more expensive speakers !!

    Re: Any Revel owners?

    I moved to the F52's from my infinities out of WAF improvement. Smaller footprint, narrower so not as visually imposing and great sound. They are however not the equal of my much older infinities when both are setup to their best. I have a two channel room in progress and when I get it done, I intend to do a more complete and fair comparison using the same sources and electronics. Craig

    Maybe you need to move up in the Revel line ?

    Umm, thought of that but have a set of Betas headed my way. I may find they are too big for my room but want to learn the hard way.

    Re: Any Revel owners?

    I am a happy Revel owner and even have their center channel. I would like to get their surrounds but I no longer have a local dealer.

    Update : I have my new dedicated room done and the IRS Betas singing. While I haven't listened to the F52s in my new room with same electronics, I am very confident, they cannot compete with the Betas. They are working well as my front channel I the upstairs theater.

    Re: Any Revel owners?

    Slightly off topic but here is few month old pic of my room with the Betas. It shows the room treatments but not all the new equipment.
