Just wanted to let you know that we got all of the speakers (five L 82) installed last spring after a lot of work on moving wiring for all the equipment and speakers. We also purchased a new Pioneer receiver that had all of the new electronics built in.
When we first listened to the speakers, I left the subwoofer off to hear how the speakers sounded by themselves. To say the least, we were blown away right from the start. These in-wall speakers replaced our paradigm floor speakers and there is no comparison. With the sound turned up, you can actually feel sound pressure from some instruments and from doors closing or other loud noises in movies. With the sub woofer turned on, the entire system sounds unbelievable.
I’m certainly not an audiophile, but these speakers seem to be as good as anything I have heard at any level of sound. I even had them cranked up so high, I thought the grills were going to fall off.
Sorry it took so long to let you know how we feel about the speakers, but it has been a busy year. Thank you for your input on speaker placement and any other help you could provide. Since our house is over 100 years old, putting the speakers exactly where they should go just didn’t work. But we got the front speakers in a good location that really allows the system to sound very good.
You may be getting a call from a person that came in to measure blinds for our house after he heard how they sounded. He actually has a home theater room so he has even more to work with.
