Award-Winning Revel Performa3 F206 Tower Loudspeakers Offer Uncompressed Dynamics, Full-Range Extension, Incredible Accuracy, and Stop-in-Your-Tracks Looks – All in a Compact Footprint
What's on your must-have list for a high-end bookshelf loudspeaker? If small footprint, uncompressed dynamic responsiveness, full-range extension, spellbinding accuracy, stop-and-stare aesthetics rank high on your priority list, a date with the Revel Performa3 F206 tower loudspeakers should be in your immediate future. Housed in fully curved, Italian-created enclosures extremely similar to those employed in Revel's flagship Ultima2 Series, F206 weds the concepts of luxury, consistency, and naturalism to looks and sound.
Featuring an astonishing complement of dual six-inch cast-frame woofers, a 5.25-inch aluminum-cone midrange, and one-inch aluminum tweeter with Acoustic Lens Waveguide, this three-way plays music with a habit-forming energy, palpable low-end weight, velvety highs, and oodles of rich detail. Commended by high-end audio and home-theater experts around the globe, F206 screams versatility and value. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
"Regardless of the source material, I consistently experienced a sense of densely packed layers of sound, an acoustic fabric of seamless energy unbroken within the sturdy proscenium created by the F206."
– Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, Editors' Choice Award
"Of course, I know I'll never find – or at least never be able to afford – the perfect speaker, but I think the Performa3 F208 and F206 are as close as I'm going to get."
– Brent Butterworth, HomeTheaterReview.com
"Regardless of the recording, the Revels were able to conjure a convincing spatial impression. Beyond that, the aural image seemed almost completely disassociated from the Studios and the F206s, spread from wall to wall, all around back and way forward to the middle of Third Avenue beyond my front wall."
– Kalman Rubinson, Stereophile
Advanced Transducers and Fluid-Model-Designed Ports
Revel F206 low-frequency transducers feature distortion reduction mechanisms that stabilize the flux field during operation, assuring low distortion even at high listening volumes. These precision transducers utilize ribbed aluminum cones for ideal piston-like behavior that eliminates a major source of resonances that are clearly audible in most other loudspeakers. Their cast aluminum frames eliminate another source of resonances that is common in many lesser-quality loudspeakers. M105 also employs a sophisticated fluid-model-designed low-frequency port with identical flares on both ends. This greatly minimizes dynamic compression and port-generated noise, assuring low-distortion low-frequency performance.
Class-Leading Tweeter Mechanism
F206's tweeter has been created around a newly designed motor and dome assembly that sets a new standard of transparency for speakers anywhere near Performa3's class. The tweeter's integrated acoustic lens waveguide is based on a breakthrough mathematical approach that accurately matches the tweeter's dispersion to that of the low-frequency transducer in the crossover region. This gives the loudspeaker very smooth sound far off-axis – an important contributor to overall sound quality, providing consistent sound over an exceptionally wide listening area. In fact, this new waveguide actually increases the tweeter's dispersion at higher frequencies.
F206 comes housed in enclosures that are similar to Revel's flagship Ultima2 Series. These fully curved enclosures are inherently stiffer than conventional box shapes and are formed with contiguous wood layers that prevent splitting. They feature strategically oriented bracing that eliminates the possibility of enclosure-induced coloration. The beautiful, modern enclosures are finished in high-gloss piano black, high-gloss piano white, or genuine American walnut in a process (developed and overseen by Italian luxury cabinet makers) that exceeds automotive finish quality.
The loudspeaker grilles are designed to minimize sonic diffraction or veiling and provide a clean, subtle appearance. The magnetic grille attachment method completely eliminates ugly hardware on the loudspeaker baffle, so if you decide to use the loudspeakers without grilles they will look like they were designed to be used without grilles.
