You can see HARMAN’s Jim Garrett walking me through the Revel PerformaBe line in this video starting at the 14-minute mark. Having just recently completed my review of its now smaller brother, I was intrigued by the new refinements and the increased displacement afforded by this new speaker. Would it actually make a noticeable difference to me when used under the same conditions as the F228Be? As luck would have it, I still had the F228Be in house so I would be able to draw some direct comparisons. Revel graciously asked if I wanted to sample the new C426Be as well and experiment with a Revel-based home theater while I was at it. Well, why not?
So, before I knew it, some very large crates arrived at my home, much to my wife’s chagrin, containing some very precious cargo. A pair of piano black F328Be floor-standing loudspeakers, a C426Be center channel, and a pair of the Concerta M8 On-Wall speakers to use for surround duty. Please stay tuned to the Secrets website for a full review, with measurements, of these two impressive speakers.
