Colin's REVIEW Artisan ™ R880
I have listened to some Klipsh RF83's and Sonique Diamond
650's. I have every confidence
that these would blow them away.
These mains are fantastic
for music as I have all other speakers turned off as well as my subwoofer
it is not needed. When watch HT these are exceptional because they have such good response down low
I can now set my sub to do only the LFE so my whole system performs so much better than now.
I was using some 12inch mains and " these R 880's are just from another planet.!!!!!
I am also using a Stones Designed subwoofer.
Artisan ™ R1500 Twin 12’’
Peerless Subwoofer 2 x 12inch
with a Hypex HS200 Subwoofer amplifier. Artisan ™ R1500 PLANS available with Artisan ™ R1500 Subwoofer Kit
I would not hesitate in recommending these monsters to anyone who wants something that no one else has.
As for speaker construction the plans that
were supplied they were easy to follow and outlined all the important
that was crucial to their construction. " Your after sales service is second to none."
The equipment I am using in conjunction with these speakers are as follows.
Yamaha RX-V3900 receiver
Panasonic BD35 Blu-Ray player
Epson TW3000 HD projector.
Centre speaker is a Peerless design done by myself.
Rears speaker are Studio acoustic in wall speakers model SA280a
