This unit was a customer return. For some reason they didnt like the color and exchanged it for a RC-64. It is in like new condition. i noted no marks or blemishes.
The Revel C208's low-frequency transducers and midrange transducer feature
distortion reduction mechanisms that stabilize the flux field during operation,
assuring low distortion even at high listening volumes. These precision
transducers utilize ribbed aluminum cones for ideal piston-like behavior that
eliminates a major source of resonances that are clearly audible in most other
loudspeakers. Their cast aluminum frames eliminate another source of resonances
that is common in many lesser-quality loudspeakers.
- Transducers feature motor-system distortion-reduction mechanisms that
stabilize the flux field during operation
- Ribbed aluminum cones achieve piston like behavior eliminating major sources
- New waveguides provide consistent sound over a wide listening area
- Enclosures created by Italian luxury cabinetmakers
- Fluid-model port designs keep distortion low
- Advanced crossovers optimize timbre accuracy both on axis and throughout the
The C208 tweeter has been created around a newly-designed motor and dome
assembly that sets a new standard of transparency for the Performa3 category.
The tweeter’s integrated acoustic lens waveguide is based on a breakthrough
mathematical approach that accurately matches the tweeter’s dispersion to that
of the midrange transducer in the crossover region. This gives the loudspeaker
very smooth sound far off-axis – an important contributor to overall sound
quality, providing consistent sound over an exceptionally wide listening area.
In fact, this new waveguide actually increases the tweeter’s dispersion at
The C208 are housed in enclosures that are similar to Revel's flagship
Ultima2 Series. These fully-curved enclosures feature sleek curved tops and
bottoms, which are inherently stiffer than conventional box shapes and are
formed with contiguous wood layers that prevent splitting. They feature
strategically-oriented bracing that eliminates the possibility of
The loudspeaker grilles are designed to minimize sonic diffraction or veiling
and provide a clean, subtle appearance. The magnetic grille attachment method
completely eliminates ugly hardware on the loudspeaker baffle, so if you decide
to use the loudspeakers without grilles, they will look like they were designed
to be used without grilles.
