Music and Entertainment Experiences That Are Nothing Short of Ultimate: Four-Way, Six-Driver Revel Ultima2 Salon2 Tower Loudspeaker Plays with Seemingly Limitless Power and Resolution
Revel's top-end flagship tower loudspeaker, Ultima2 Salon2, blends cutting-edge engineering, forward-looking aesthetics, and modern flexibility to grant music lovers – and film aficionados – experiences that are nothing short of ultimate. The Stereophile Class A Recommended and The Absolute Sound Editors' Choice Award-winning Salon2 draws on an esteemed pool of technological resources, materials, and geometrics meticulously chosen to represent the most discriminating performance Revel offers in terms of tonal balance, timbral-matched dispersion, refined imaging, and ravishing inner detail. Every fourth-order crossover network utilizes separate filter boards for each frequency range, netting enhanced power handling and significantly less compression distortion than traditional types – and claiming stellar integration, attention-getting transparency, and smooth musicality.
Among the most advanced in audio, each of the four-way Salon2's one-inch tweeters incorporate pure beryllium domes and acoustically optimized waveguides for seamless midrange-to-tweeter transitions and resolute purity. A triad of 8-inch inverted-dome woofers, a 6.5-inch mid-woofer, and a four-inch midrange driver employ titanium diaphragms that display piston-like behavior no matter how hard they're pushed. Large voice coils wood with copper "ribbon" wire, aluminum flux-stabilization rings, and copper caps complete an array that for the end user is less about mechanics and all about how you experience everything from the staccato thwack of a snare drum and raw sustain of an electric guitar to the silky timbre of a vintage violin.
Sculpted to look as eloquent, sensuous, and powerful as they sound, Salon2 takes you inside the action at hand and makes you a part of the scene. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
"With the Ultima Salon2, Revel's design team has taken the conventional concept of a moving-coil box loudspeaker to the limit of what is currently possible."
– John Atkinson, Stereophile, Class A Recommendation
"The Salon2 was one of the highest-resolution loudspeakers I've had in my home, yet, paradoxically, was thoroughly enjoyable on less-than-stellar recordings."
– Robert Harley, The Absolute Sound, Editors' Choice Award
"Revel's Ultima2 Salon2 us a wonderful loudspeaker—by no small measure, the best I've had in my home. They're explicit, literal, full-sounding, wide-ranging, even in frequency response, and—thanks to their tweeter and woofer controls—versatile. They image beautifully."
– Jim Austin, Stereophile
"[It] remains my reference loudspeaker."
– Larry Greenhill, Stereophile
