    The Finest Money Can Build


    I first heard Revel speakers many years ago at CES when they burst on the scene. The curiously modest-looking original Gem speakers were sitting behind their designer Kevin Voecks as he introduced them. Then he fired up an exquisitely calibrated 9-inch CRT projector. I remember this as the exact moment when I decided, by hook or by crook, there would be a front projector in my house someday. Such is the influence of great sound accompanying good video. All of this introduction is my way of saying that the Revel system here is once again best of show in my book.

    ..............................................


    Revel has the art of speaker creation down to a science, and that’s a good thing. The company came along in the mid-1990s, at a time when the voodoo hype of speaker manufacturing was at its height of absurdity. Under the tutelage of Voecks, chief speaker designer at Snell from the mid-’80s, and with the financial backing of industry giant Harman International, Revel has access to multiple large anechoic chambers for measuring and testing. Its multichannel listening lab trades subjective evaluation for double-blind listening tests. Using computer-aided finite element analysis for speaker design and laser interferometers for driver and cabinet analysis is just part and parcel of the Revel business process.

    They do make some sexy looking speakers. I never heard them before, but from what I read, their are awesome to listen to..

    I was going to get that same setup that you posted, but didn't want to take out a 30yr mortgage to get them. lol Jk, I love music, but not that much, that's almost 2 years tuition for me..

    LOL, I hear you on that one, The only 5 series worth owning is the M-5, I always said when I was done with school I would get one. Not a brand new one, a year or two old. Not paying near 100k for a car, but in the 40k range is doable for that sexy machine..
