Everything sounds bright at Tweeter. I bought Focal JM Lab Profile 918 speakers, which I auditioned in Tweeter. I ended up finding them on A-gon for 1/2 price so I snatched them up. At home, my room is acoustically treated and I also have better speaker cables than Tweeter. I just picked up the new Tesla line cables from Synergistic Research.
The Profiles are not bright at all. Lesson Learned: Dont go by how a speaker sounds in a Tweeter showroom. By the way, I have all Krell equipment... No brightness at all. Just perfect music...
i just picked up a pair of 918's at sound concept in rochester ny. i auditioned B&W's, triangle's, sunus faber grand pianos, spendor's. to me, the focals were the more musical of the lot. i'm even thinking of trading them in for 928's. cable is now my main issue. anyone have any comments or input on nordost red dawn? rock on!
Gilman, I have the 918's and demo'ed a few cables over the past year. The best were the new Synergistic Research Accelerators speaker cables. The Cable Company will loan them to you to try.
I could not believe how these new cables transformed my system. I finally have that WOW factor I've been looking for since I bought the 918's. The bass is very tight and controlled.
Also, I have paired the 918's with a Rel Britannia B3 sub and now I have perfect full range music. I too thought the 928's would be better but they still would not go as low as adding a sub. Good Luck!
