The Bookshelf Loudspeaker That The Absolute Sound Pronounced "One of the Great Compacts of the Last Ten Years": Revel Performa3 M106 Delivers Class-Leading Effortlessness and Naturalism

In explaining the prowess of Revel's Performa3 M106 bookshelf loudspeakers, it's nearly impossible to best the summation provided by The Absolute Sound, which declares it "one of the great compacts of the last ten years." Veteran audio critic Neil Gader's proclamation is no exaggeration. Outfitted with a 6.5-inch driver, M106, it plays like no other similarly sized two-way model you've ever heard. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.

Rigorous testing, zero-compromise engineering, transducers complete with piston-like behavior and cast-aluminum frames, benchmark-establishing crossovers, and fluid-designed low-frequency ports with matching flares on both ends all account for outstandingly defined reproduction of challenging information such as ambient cues, low-level transients, and timbral details. Few speakers anywhere near this price class perform with such effortlessness and naturalism. Tack on elegant enclosures devised by luxury Italian cabinetmakers, and M106 serves as proof that there is some right in the world.

"The Performa3 F206 and M106 are segment-defining loudspeakers."
—Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, Golden Ear Award

"No matter what music I played, I could hear no shortcomings — no deviation from neutrality throughout the speaker's extended frequency range, and every recording revealed [M106] to be detailed, dynamic performers with superb soundstaging."
—Robert Reina, Stereophile

"As much as I hate to say it my favorite speaker has been overthrown. The Revel represents the pinnacle of what can be achieved with a mini-monitor using passive technology."

Advanced Transducers and Fluid-Model-Designed Ports

Revel M106 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. M106 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

M106'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.

Ultima2-Inspired Enclosures

M106 is 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.

Magnetic Grilles

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.
