OVERVIEW

The Revel Ultima2 Series Loudspeakers exemplify subtle elegance with their smooth, rounded shapes, easily blending into a wide variety of décors. Offering an elegant, designer-friendly appearance and unparalleled sound quality, the Revel Salon2 is the highest expression of Revel technology and performance in loudspeaker design and achieves previously unmatched performance. Its sophisticated design even extends to the cast aluminum input and control panel, which is hidden from view yet easily accessible. The smoked access panel continues the elegant shape of the cabinet, even when viewed from the side or rear. The Salon2 is as delightful for the discriminating eye as is satisfying for the refined ear.
