Summary: At its best, listening to music is a
transformative experience. It helps you to forget the daily grind and takes you to another
place and time. The goal of equipment used in music reproduction is to get out of the way
and communicate exactly what is on the source, whether it be CD, vinyl, DVD or tape. While
this is easier said than done, the Revel F12s do a fine job in this regard. I thoroughly
enjoyed my time with these speakers.
Summary: Revel has struck a winning chord in the $1298 price range with the Concertas. I recently did some roundrobin listening to speakers in or near the Concerta's price range, including Magnepan MG12s, Triangle Heliades, Dynaudio Audience 62s, and PSB T55s. Each of these speakers has its own strengths, but for my tastes, the Concertas still won out.
Excerpt: Revel is a US loudspeaker specialist that started out in the mid-1990s. It's part of the giant Harman conglomerate, alongside the rather better-known and longer-established JBL brand, giving it access to Harman's impressive research facility in Northridge, California, even though the company itself is based on the East Coast.
