TWO OF ALL POSITIVE REVIEWS WRITTEN:Voted Robb Report's "Best of the Best" in the Home Electronics Category - June 2009 Issue.The Illusion reference floor standing loudspeaker system embodies Snell's very best design capabilities. WITH NO LIMITATIONS SET ON ACOUSTICAL DESIGN, MATERIALS, AND CREATIVE DESIGN, THE ILLUSION IS TRULEY AN AUDIO ENTHUSIAST'S MATERPIECE. Illusion is a graceful pair of tapering towers housing a full spectrum of fast, sublimely musical transducers, interacted with an exceedingly accurate crossover network in the Snell tradition. The Illusion generates an exceptionally wide, realistic three-dimensional soundstage that puts voices and instruments not just in their proper location, but in their proper size relative to each other with consistent acoustic characteristics at every listening level. Each Illusion takes Snell more than 30 hours to make: 6 hours to mill the bezels and cabinet, 3 to assemble the crossover, 6 for assembly of parts, 9 to buff the finish, 4 of final assembly, and 2 hours to tune each speaker to within 0.5dB of the frequency response of Snell's factory reference. Snell plans to build three pairs of Illusions per month.
STEREOPHILE REVIEW By Larry Greenhill 12,/08 The Snell Illusion is a flagship loudspeaker in terms of price, iconic enclosure design, the deep luster of its automotive black finish, and its stunningly realistic midrange and treble dynamics. The Illusion had one of the finest midrange responses I've heard. The Illusion's upper midrange and treble were similarly equal to those of the best electrostatic loudspeakers, including my Quad ESL-989s. The Illusion's dynamic capabilities are almost without equal. Its reproduction of orchestral music has a startling, dynamic, almost Technicolor quality that rapidly became addicting. For me, the Snell Illusion is what the High-End is all about: exceptional performance at an exceptionally high price and iconic design. I RECOMMEND THE ILLUSION FROM SNELL ACOUSTIC'SIT'S ONE OF THE BEST FLOORSTANDING LOUDSPEAKERS I'VE HEARD.
