Only head-fiers would know --- Geneva Labs Model L or M good sound for the $$$???

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I strongly suspect this (the Model L or M) is the best IPOD speaker out there for "reasonable" money out there now. (One speaker box, not a 2.1 such as the iFi, etc...). But reviews are hard to find and those who own one (or have heard one) are even harder to come by. It's manufacturer sales only and they do not market like Bose (who does?). I understand it may not be up to the standards of you guys, but as an IPOD player how is it? (P.S. I believe the M is about $499 and the L about $699. Good looks, wood, CD player, and radio included). I would lean towards the smaller Model M --- probably in red.

I do like the Harman Kardon Play+Go somewhat --- sort of a not as good but smaller, one-piece Klipsch iFi. It's not as good as the old Klipsch iFi (particularly treble) but smaller and brighter (long listening sessions at high volume not recommended). The Chestnut Hill George has a lot of features (AM/FM, detachable remote, clock, alarm) and better treble than the HK's somewhat tinny high frequencies, but is missing separation and bass. After all, it is a clock radio!

Hasn't anyone bought or heard one of these? Everyone in the U.S. buys Bose Soundock based on their brilliant sound --- er, brilliant marketing.

(To make this less abstract, I often listen to the IPOD with SR 60's or if I'm in the mood I use AKG 701s with an Emmerline SR-line-out and 320kbps or Apple Lossless. All types of music seem to sound good with this set-up!)

Tx!

Don't buy them, they're big, bulky, sound ok and don't look as good at home as they do on the net

seems like one big designer item. I would spend $60 on this:
Vanns.com: Mirage OMNIVIBE OmniVibe iPod Dock Sound System (OMNIVIBE) Features

and be done with it.

Or the harman kardon you talked about is $120 or so for refurb from the highly reputable harmanaudio ebay store. Great deal on that.

There is still little about this system on the internet. 

 

Does anybody have any experience of a Model L. I know the XL is great value and these units have WAF beyond even Beo.

 

I found that the environment is important otherwise an equaliser is essential to compensate for eg. small, highly reflective rooms.

 

ADD: So far looks like Head-fier's know very little about these.
