    Elac Vela or Solano measurements

    My understanding is that both speakers were not Andrew Jones designs. I can’t put any stock in these traditional reviews without measurements. For some reason no one has touched these stateside that does objective reviews. Solano is using similar parts as Vela but may be manufactured in China...

    Revel M16 Speaker Review

    No, not exactly. I would actually take a listen to the M106 again. I remember that when I heard it, I loved the clarity and it was enjoyable, but I just preferred the tone of the Elac that I had a little more at the time. I do enjoy the bass hump a bit on these, but I plan to revisit the...

    Revel M16 Speaker Review

    Just picked up a pair, had the m106 a while back, but eventually sold it to hear other speakers. I’m looking forward to seeing what I think of it against the R3

    Why? Because I’m curious. Of course there’s nothing wrong with the R3…

    Elac Vela or Solano measurements

    Hi All, has anyone seen measurements on these two standmount speakers? I would like to get an idea how they may stack up to my Kef R3 before I try them out. Also, if anyone has listened to the Vela or Solano, would love to get your take on these and what you thought of them. Thanks

    Polk Reserve R200: Spinorama and measurements (a really nice surprise!)

    @ROOSKIE yeah, good question. If I said M16, I actually meant the M106. I just had issue with certain songs where the singer’s voice wasn’t in primary focus and there were certain beats in the mid band that would overshadow voices. I have noticed this on other well measuring speakers, but only...

    KEF Reference and Blade Meta announced, but where is the R Meta?????

    Lol, fair enough. Times change, though. Also, I’m going with Jack and the company saying this is going to be a huge year. Never understood how Dynaudio went with Special 25 and later Special 40

    KEF Reference and Blade Meta announced, but where is the R Meta?????

    I’d be happy just with an announcement of some new passive under $3k this fall. I’m thinking though that it’s the LSX II…

    KEF Reference and Blade Meta announced, but where is the R Meta?????

    Great to see they’ve added Meta to the higher end. These are very impressive. I am still hoping Q4 will see the announcement of an LS60 speaker that’s made for the rest of us.

    Arendal 1961 Bookshelf review (by Erin)

    Wow, this has me really looking at the step up 1723 to see how that compares with my R3

    Polk Reserve R200: Spinorama and measurements (a really nice surprise!)

    Thanks for sharing, Mark. I forgot to add that I also had the L100 for a bit, but sold it to listen to some more esoteric gobbledygook - Sonus Faber, etc. It was a nice listen and coming off of Dali, it was less tipped up. I remember the m106 making my UB5s sounding like smeared mush, although...

    Polk Reserve R200: Spinorama and measurements (a really nice surprise!)

    Has anyone actually compared the Reserve series to the Legend series or Revel for that matter? This seems almost too good to be true and I’m going to end up buying one to hear for myself but have been eyeing up Revel again…m106 wasn’t my cup of tea although I want to give it another try.

    Master Thread: Are measurements Everything or Nothing?

    I’m glad this thread started. I have slowly come to the realization that measurements have major significance as I’ve gone through the idiotic process of DAC comparisons at a 70db or less typical listening level…think I’m just fine with my blah Bluesound. While there are certain amp designs...

    Review and Measurements of Bluesound NODE 2i Streamer

    Maybe it's just me, but the node 2i DAC sounds fine. That doesn't mean I don't want to test power cords, PSU mods, etc, but right now, idk rca'd to my integrated, sounds good.

    Recommendation for MOST DETAILED, ANALYTICAL, X-RAY - 3D HOLOGRAPHIC DAC available?

    My Hegel and my Purifi were around the same price. Reason I returned the Purifi, it didn’t sound that much different - turns out, not really at all and I’m like, “why the hell do I have two of these and if this thing is supposed to sound like $40k monoblocks, I’m getting basically the same thing...
