Extra Info: 

 

I bought these in April 2019 , intrigued by the design and the reviews (below) and also through much discussion with Andy at Audiofix over their suitability in my room. in short they work fine in my room and with their down firing port , makes for a lot of versatility in room positioning.  Ultimately I enjoyed their sound enough to sell my Dynaudio confidence 5. 
 

but as always in this great game, a recent read up and current home demo of Revel F208 have made me decide to purchase them as hopefully an “ end game” speaker. Well that’s the plan 😎

 

these present as new , out of the boxes and set up -   No marks at all. So like new with a discount price.
 

sounds wise, I play a wide variety of music through them and found them to be detailed and balanced, never becoming over bright  the high and mids in particular are impressive. Female vocals in particular sound very nice. The bass is fast and well defined - certainly not plodding.  These could be an ideal speakers for someone liking the Proac, Spendor or Sonus Fabre sound. 
 

Build quality is spot on, weight in at 35kg each, with 25mm cabinets made in Italy and the heavy and solid plinths.  At a pinch they do look a bit like mid period Sonus  Faber, but certainly they look even more impressive in the flesh. With their design and slimline dimensions, could be a alternative to a similar priced standmount? 
 

I have the boxes (3) and packaging so transport/courier isn’t an issue. Happy demo at home to interested parties

 

boxes are 115cm long x 33cm wide and 45cm deep weight would be about 40 kgs per box.

 

interesting fact - Falcon are distributed the USA by Mofi electronics. 

 

Cheers dave

Falcon Acoustics is of course renowned for their BBC LS3/5a's as the only current iteration that actually employs the same KEF drive units as the originals.
I would love to audition these.

 

And your Studio 30's of course! Spec wise, they would appear to be easy to drive. 

 

Not sure if you've actually achieved an upgrade with the Revels though that would depend on your front end, so I'd be interested in your thoughts of how they compare. Similar size and configuration to the F208's but I imagine they would sound very different?

The f208 are bigger than the studio 30 in cabinet size and drivers. Tho they weigh roughly the same 35 vs36 kg. Consequently the f208 have more of the same , if you like. 

 

I would imagine the revel 206 are more similar to the studio 30 in sound.

I'm sure the F208's have a big soundstage too.

 

I should mention that I've previously owned Revels as well (the original Gems and Studios) and both were magnificent.

 

Judging from what I've read, I expect the Falcons are worthy transducers too.

 

They are too big for me, I'm afraid. In case you hadn't worked out, I'm after the LS3/5a's instead!

 

GLWTS - it's a good price considering they are virtually new.

      Item Condition: Used Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Baulkham Hills State: New South Wales Payment Method: EFT , cash, PayPal Reason for selling: NLR Further information: it became a legend and once you hear it you’ll know why. With the RRP price tag of $30000 it clearly justify the sound/price ratio. Build like a tank with its 26Kg, 4 transformers top loading design. It has a separate DAC input conversion so you can play your favourite local files equally Good quality as CD player. Volume control is also build in for direct connection to amps. It nicely presents the soundstage and its very analogue sound, typical Vitus.
      there are many forums and groups talking about this player and one of the reviews I have attached below.

      I'm sure the fine folk who frequent this site already know about the quality of the panel, and I've moved on to something more matching our decor, according to the 'boss' lol.
       
      So my loss is your gain of course pickup only and the box is long gone.
       
      Also note, this is in postcode 4355, which is Crows Nest Queensland, and not the NSW version
       
      Thanks all.
