    Re: Any Revel owners?

    I went with a Hegel H360 because it made such a big difference and it was the best stuff I could hear locally! From all i've read the Pass labs and Mark Levinson would be great also and the H series is actually $$$ attainable for me, but not so convenient. Thanks for the replies. Steve

    So the H360 I bought for my salon1's was a demo and I believe was at its best when I installed it. I have to tell anyboby with Ultima1's or performa2's they really need to demo a Hegel asap, it really opens up the midrange on these speakers. Anyhow I was struggling to get the salon1's to integrate with my room and after 14 months I gave up and they're for sale! 1 guess what I replaced them with? Yes the salon2's sound great in this room and while Not as awesome as the ML 536 My Hegel plays pretty good with them. anybody want a pair of immaculate salon1's gloss black pm me.

    Re: Any Revel owners?

    I went Revel whole hog. For the past nine years, I’ve had an Ultima I system consisting of two Studios, a Voice, four Embraces and two Sub 30s. This system is driven by Krell class A amplifiers (which, surprisingly, to me sound better with these speakers than Mark Levinsons); the cabling is Transparent Audio. My preamp/DAC/processor is a Theta Casablanca IV, and my primary front end components are a Wadia 8 transport, a SOTA Sapphire turntable an an Oppo-203. I forgot to mention that all the Revels are gray and have the aluminum side panels.

    Every time I listen to my system, I am delighted with the quality of its audio reproduction. Yes, I have heard better (for example, at the recent AXPONA show), but only when listening to systems far, far more costly than mine.

    Re: Any Revel owners?

    I still have the voice center and when I look at what they sell for and then what that money would get me for a replacement I see no reason to replace it.
