It's quite apparent the group is doing well. There is certainly more experienced users on there, and you will get opinions based on facts.Got some feedback on facebook... going with the smaller ones
Satin Black looks far better than i ever expected.
This is an Arendal thread so I’ll keep it short. I demo’d the ATC SCM11 today and bought a pair in Satin Black. Running them in as we speak. In my view and my ears this one is quicker, more dynamic and more open than the Arendal 1723 Bookshelf S.mmm, I’m not so sure about that. They’re a neutral speaker, very revealing and dynamic. No doubt very difficult to go and listen to though.
Welcome across from the Arcam thread.Thanks for your input and post, who sells them and where can I get a demo?
Think I'll get a home loan to try those out.
What models do you own??
Hi all thanks for the welcome and tip mate, this is a new brand to me so I know very little about them....Welcome across from the Arcam thread.
The place to get demos is from existing owners. Arendal only sell direct to the consumer from Norway. This means that there are no dealer margins and you get a better quality product for the price.
The way the home trial works is that you buy the speakers, and you have a 60-day return window. Arendal arrange collection and the shipping fee is capped at 149 euro. It's a slightly different way of doing it but to my knowledge only one person on this forum has ever done this for the speakers.
My signature has my setup. 1723 Tower S, Surround S, a pair of Bookshelf S and a Sub 2.
This thread has most of the answers you'll be seeking, but feel free to ask away.
Yes, they really are that good! The Towers and Monitors are leagues above what you'll see on the high street for under £4k.
Lots say that they are quite neutral and allow the amp to do its thing perfectly. I find them to be very slightly warmer than the Dali and B&W 702s which is great because I found them to be quite bright and brittle with the AVR850.Hi all thanks for the welcome and tip mate, this is a new brand to me so I know very little about them....
Would to hear or demo a pair, do they have their own sound signature like B&W?
