Congrats! I'm curious whether you have the grills on or off. I noticed a HUGE improvement with the grills off. So much so, that I packed up the grills and have them stored in the speaker boxes.

Off. I tried them both ways of course. I usually prefer grills (grills or grilles? ) off anyway. However, I think I prefer the look of the speakers with the grills on but they're handsome enough either way.

I think I'll play with them some more today!

Lew, great write up! I absolutely love the Salons, I know I will end up getting a pair. Strongly considering selling my 802D2's and putting the money towards the Revels. Problem is my wife loves the way the B&W's look... go figure.

Can't wait to see some pics of your set up and more updates as they settle in.

They unpack the same way the 208s do, except as with everything Salon, there's bit extra included.



And that's all I have right now. I'll see if I can do something more artful for posterity.

Lew.......The new Revel Salon 2's look fabulous. They are a fine speaker. Might be time to consider MC601's.

Congrats! I knew you would finally get a pair. You're going to love them.

Best,
