HOW IS YOUR ROOM SET UP?
My system is placed in a pretty standard living room, not designed to host hi-tech stuff. In order to keep a good balance between style/living and performance I designed a versatile system able to be easily dis/assembled when required, but still complying with Dolby’s standards.
WHAT WERE YOUR GOAL WHEN LOOKING FOR NEW SPEAKERS AND SUBWOOFERS?
Coming from an entry-level 5.1 home theater system (mainly Wharfedale) I decided to take a step up to a 7.1 system in order to enjoy more my movie collection, searching for the right balance between power and quality of sound; a subwoofer able to shake the walls from the foundations but at the same time capable to don’t suffocate the other speakers, that should provide clear dialogues and an immersive surround effect.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE ARENDAL SOUND AND WHERE DID YOU HEAR ABOUT US?
Very honestly, I didn’t know anything about Arendal Sound until a few months ago. As usually happens, when you look for new speakers, I was surfing on different forums, searching for feedback, reviews, etc. and basically I was convinced with another brand, but I still was uncertain about the subwoofer. At that moment one user suggested me to have a look to the 1723 Subwoofer 2 and bam, it was love at first sight! I couldn’t believe about the level of technical specs in relation with the required price. Navigating on the website I also discovered all the other speakers, getting the same feeling, so I thought “That’s it, I’ll bring all of you at home!”. My last concern was about the impossibility to listen to them before purchasing but, the numerous positive reviews, in addition with the “60 days buy and try” formula, convinced me to finalize the deal.
