Congrats. I’m sure you will get many years of enjoyment out of them and you won’t regret those Salon’s...

Thanks! The Olympica IIIs are great (and beautiful) speakers as well. Had I not demoed them against Revel, I may have ended up with a pair. They were awesome!

Anyone have any tips on tightening the binding posts on the back of the Olympica 3s ? I find them hard to tighten the spades properly at times since they are so close together....thanks

Paul

I have olympica III, and olympica center. Definitive Tech in-wall surrounds. Looking to add Atmos ceiling speakers. Should i stick with Def Tech or are there any other brands recommended to match? Looking to spend under $400 pair.
