If I could afford Revels, I wouldn't be driving a Hyundai smile

It's my nature to criticize and compare what I have to "dream" items I can't afford. Luckily I am not married LOL

Loc: It's all about the location.
Blind testing is the only real/fair way to compare speakers. It removes all other biases. Most overpriced speaker manufacturers would NEVER allow this.

The proper term is "Pez Dispenser".

Quote:
As one expects of Canadian-school speakers, the M60 v3 measures beautifully, with generally flat response overall and practically dead-flat response from 400 Hz to 10 kHz - a region that encompasses most of the midrange and all but the top octave of treble. There's a very mild bump at 500 Hz that may be the result of floor bounce, and a strong +4-dB peak at 15.5 kHz. Off-axis response is very good; except for the expected treble rolloff, the sound barely changes as you move off-axis.


And there's your money quote.

JBall,
I like the Revel speakers; they are great. Harman is doing an exceptional job at designing outstanding speakers. I could not agree more about their knowledge, research and know how.

I still stand that scientifically controlled double-blind listening tests is the only reliable fashion to evaluate an audio speaker. I will add that it will simplify things if the auditioner is familiar with the material (music) played.

You probably realize based on our exchange that simply the fact that you know that it is a Revel speaker your evaluation will not be objective. Blind listening tests; you don't know what you are listening to . . . It makes all the difference in the world.

You da man, JC. You should visit more often, what with all that spare time you have after your 58 hour week is through.
