Clothing and such.

I’m sure others have thought of this but here’s my take. I would love to see clothing with the Arendal name/logo on them. It would be great to be able to proudly display the brand we own and are so passionate about (as well for advertising). Would also love to...

Good stuff to listen to 🎵

Hey guys, right now I am listening to Rammstein’s new album called “Zeit” on my 1723 S speakers (sounds great ☺️). From a “song-perspective” it unfortunately is a mediocre album, but from a production standpoint it is quite interesting. While not super-audiophile in nature, they used 3D-Sound as mentioned in...

In-wall/In-Ceiling Speakers

Any chance of adding timbre matched in-wall and in-ceiling speakers to the lineup?  Even better if they are THX certified.  I think this would be beneficial to those who need to save on space or who like the aesthetics of having things in wall.  Also would probably help round out...

Current movies with great sound

Hey guys, I kind of feel there are not so many new movies released with better than average sound. Most of them are okay but lack, especially dynamics. They sound like they were mastered for your TV and soundbar and not for a great home-cinema experience. Basically all Marvel/Disney movies...

Front Heights or Front Surrounds?

I have a 7.1.4 setup but room on my processor for one more pair of speakers, either front heights, or front surrounds. Any thoughts on which might be the better next step? I will,  of course, just try some speakers in each  position, but wanted to gauge community thoughts as...

When they created the Arendal community they announced that they could get some speakers of the 1961 series for participating in it, I do not know what happened with it, if there is any section where it has already been commented. Can anyone explain to me what happened?Greetings Ramon T.

My new cinema room!

This is my first cinema room, it’s a dedicated 3,30×4,47 m (14,75 m2) room. Due to its small size I decided to treat the room only with absorption panels. I tried to follow as close as possible Dolby and THX specifications for speaker and screen placement, the final result is...

7.1 Front Wides Underrated?

Hello, I am experimenting with few different speaker setups with my Arendal 1961 set and I quite like the 7.1 variant with towers as front, monitors as front wides and surrounds as surrounds (at about 120 degrees). With 7.1 or atmos signals, it seems that surround signals get split between...

Subwoofer crossover frequency

Just wandering, what subwoofer crossover frequency is everyone using with the 1723 Monitors when they are in the “plugged” configuration? I’m using an SVS SB-13 Ultra and found 80hz was optimal, otherwise if the sub was set below that frequency, it became directional.

An ‘Outlet’improvement suggestion

Browsing the outlet, there’s no obvious indication of whether you’d be purchasing a single speaker or a pair. On the main site, price is given as  €xxx/pair, but in outlet, this is missing. Several times while browsing, I’ve had to go to the main shop to check the prices to...
