    Revel F206 Tower Speaker Review

    This is a screen shot from Dirac of my F206 measured response before correction with the tight 9 point pattern. It’s pretty obvious where my horrible asymmetric smallish room takes over at 400 Hz! Above that I’d say they are pretty linear and well Behaved. This measurement is with the...

    He’s a story - Salon is the most highly prized champagne one can buy. They make a maximum of three vintages a decade and when they do they only make 50,000 bottles. Tiny quantities. To release the 1999 vintage what was the meal the clever French chose - you’ve guessed it - good old fish and...

    If you want good fish and chips go to a coastal town with local fishing fleet and a quayside ‘chippie’. It will be fresh and well cooked. The pub probably got the fish and potatoes out of a freezer. Good ambience does little to guarantee good quality when it comes to a fish supper.

    Revel F206 Tower Speaker Review

    I have mine toed in so a line from the tweeter, perpendicular to the speaker baffle hits my ear (ish) - so pretty much pointed at me. No harshness, but they are not warm speakers either. I imagine if the lower frequencies / mid bass were missing it could tip from clear to bright sounding.

    Things are now so rubbish in the UK that our (alleged) terrible food now features quite a long way down the list :(

    Revel F206 Tower Speaker Review

    Good on you for not convincing yourself to buy just because of the discount. Hope you find your Goldilocks speaker soon.

    The etymology of woofer and tweeter

    The more I think about it the weirder the choice seems, especially with the simple, informative elegance of the German! Imagine the sales discussion @kemmler3D talked about earlier … Punter - “well what does this big one do” Sales person - “oh that makes a sound like a dog barking” Punter -...

    The etymology of woofer and tweeter

    Brilliant :) Request to our host - could his next speaker review be done in the style of dog sounds.

    The etymology of woofer and tweeter

    Perhaps the type of dog doing the woofing has to be introduced for these - subwoofer = basset woofer , mid woofer = beagle woofer , which means a tweeter would become a chihuahua woofer :)

    The etymology of woofer and tweeter

    I’ve been thinking on this for a while and can’t come up with anything better - harder than it sounds !

    The etymology of woofer and tweeter

    Just why, when and who? And if you were naming them now what words would you use instead in the 21st century (and why) This is a right side of brain activity so may not suit everyone ;)

    Proposal: Right to Fair Review (RFR) Association

    How much legal obligation falls on the equipment provider (Klippel / AP) to demonstrate the efficacy of their gear? Interesting point of case law in the UK right now relating to a huge miscarriage of justice by the Post Office based on the presumption that computers are reliable (in this case...
