    Revels to replace Thiel Powerpoints?

    Now that the front of my Home theater is completely matched up (see signature below, I am seriously thinking of replacing my Thiel Powerplane with matching Revel speakers and perhaps another Krell amp.

    Does anyone have any comment on that and has anyone ever heard the in wall Revel speakers? Would those speakers be noticeably better than the Thiels?

    Hard to beat Revel, especially if they match your other speakers.

    The new Revels are JUST KILLER.

    We've got the $4,000 floorstanding speakers going out to Brent Butterworth for his first review for HomeTheaterReview.com (thanks for sharing Sound + Vision). They are killers. I saw them at CEDIA.

    THIEL is being redone by the guy who was behind Lenbrook (NAD and PSB) years ago. I think they will have some new speakers in the future. For now, Revel is to market with their new stuff and its great.

    Revel's are the only speakers I'd ever consider if I were to dump my M&Ks.
