The team at REVEL has really created a wonderful product with these amazing Beryllium tweeters, the waveguides, the sandwich cones, and a sturdy build quality with a pleasing aesthetic. These speakers also tested very well with some of the lowest distortion readings of any speaker I have evaluated.
Revel F206 is well-balanced speakers playing with a fine balance while both life and dynamism. Here are no excesses or spectacular trends, but it does not reproduction boring. On the contrary, the playing style modern and engaging.
The first product I reviewed for the SoundStage! Network was a pair of Revel loudspeakers, back in 2006. The F12 was a member of Revel’s first line of entry-level speakers, the Concertas, then newly introduced. (A successor line, Concerta2, was launched at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show.) I liked the Concerta F12, but at the time I’m not sure I appreciated just how good it was, especially for the price: $1198 USD per pair.
