    Judging from the video the fit and finish on those Arendals are outstanding.I enjoy your brisk and flowing yet intelligible style of speaking.
    Makes the presentation more palpable .

    I was looking at the Arendal 1723 THX 8 inch speaker version. What do you think of these smaller 1723 s version compared to the SVS ultra system. Do you think the arendals blow the SVS out of the water?

    Just discovered these. Regarding the comments on the tripole surrounds and Atmos, were you able to test them in monopole mode vs. tripole and which did you prefer for Atmos?

    I feel like I must be missing something. The dimensions and frequency response that you provided do not match the info on the Arendal website. Am I doing it wrong?

    I'm building a dedicated home cinema room and for speakers I have the M&K S150 or S300 on my list, also the XTZ M6 or M8 and these Arendal 1723 monitors. So far I've heard the M&K S300 which are fenomenal. Soon I will hear the XTZ M6 at a local dealer. Unfortunately there is no way to test the Arendal speakers at a dealer. Also it's impossible for me to test all 3 speakers in the same room, because no dealer has all 3 brands. So I have to make my choice based on what I've heard myself and from internet reviews like these.

    Just placed an order for these speakers. You have cost me a lot of money with this channel sir. Pair of PB-16 Ultras, JVC NX5 projector, Panny UB9000, the home theater seats and now the Arendals, I think I'll draw the line at the Trinnov though (for now). My wife gets nervous everytime you do a new product review. LOL Love your channel though, best reviews online!

    Hi Shane!

    How much better sound do these give (1723 s) against the 1961 speakers? I know they don't have any bass but that is for the subs.

    Is the upgrade worth the money?

    Question would the 1723s be a worthy upgrade over the Klipsch RP280F 5.2 system?

    @SpareChange I've been thinking about possibly getting a set of these, would you consider (3) 1723 S Monitors an actual 'upgrade' over my current KEF R300/600c combo? Also, I use Focal SR800 bipole speakers mounted directly on the back wall for my surrounds since seating is only a foot away with an open concept room, do you think the "TriAxial" design surrounds from Arendal would image as good/better/worse for my situation?

    In the end it doesn't matter getting their center channel as its the same as their monitor but made to be horizontal. If your going to use the surrounds as a single speaker why not get their bookshelf instead. Not addressing this to you as they sent you the kit mentioning this for those looking to get a kit. How do their subs sound compared to an svs pb 3000 for example? Going to Arendal I would keep my svs sub to be honest.

    Any plans to review the 1961 series when they're released? Those are looking really good to me if they compare at all to the 1723's.

    Need your help. I just recieved Canadian pricing form Arendal on the 1723 and 1723S and both are in my price range. What I need help is in deciding if it is comparable either upscale or downscale to other speaker brands that I am shopping. On the upper end is KEF R7, B&W 703s. The middle is Monitor Audio Silver 500 & 300 and Martin Logan Motion 60 XTi and the lower end is Martin Logan Motion 40i, Revel Concerta 2 F36, Paradigm Premier 800F and SVS Prime Pinnacle. This will be hopefully my forever tower speakers and I don't want to f**k it up. I know that they all sound good but I just want to justify the maximum best sound for my dollars. My primary goal is for music so I will accept anyone's surround sound speakers. Thanks.
