    Default Green Mountain Diamante Series II

    Anyone ever heard of these? I've seen this ad several times over the past two years. Either the guy is asking too much, or the Soprano's aren't looking to ad speakers to their decor.

    These are either UGLY, or BEAUTIFUL... I can't decide!

    The finish probably scares most buyers away. I haven't heard that one, but there were some Green Mountain bookies at LSAF that I got my ears on. They were very.... That's the impression I left with. I couldn't say anything bad or good about them: they gave you the music and seemingly nothing else. I thought they sounded good but didn't draw me into the music.

    I still cannot think of a descriptive term for their sound. I do know that some people prefer that sound and I think I could appreciate it myself if I were given more time to listen to them.

    Looks like the company has some interesting lines. Yeah, but those gawdy green marbled cabinets... YIKES!

    Tons of excellent reviews online, but a few dampen those from people who were not properly supported after the purchase.

    Seems they promise you one thing as far as SQ, and when you do not receive what they promised you are SOL.

    I have never heard them, but they look really well built.

    The finish on the cabinets reminds me of some store display rack/cabinets. And the covers over the drivers......make them look cheap imo.

    I think that's why he's having a tough time selling. The website looks like they now have some pretty impressive (at least aesthetically) lines now. But these... yeah, not so good looking. I agree completely on the driver covers.

    I happen to own a pair of Green Mountain Audio Rios.
    Easily the best speakers I've ever heard!
    I surely haven't listened too every speaker out there, & I'm sure there are many that sound better.
    Roy at GMA knows what he is doing.

    From the sounds of the ad, it looks like Roy will take the time to personally talk to you and help you out. That is customer service!

    Truth be known....I don't care what the speakers look like if they sound awesome. But then again the WAF plays into things as well. My wife hates the oak cabinets of my Infinity RSIIIa's. "They don't match anything in the room"..."can you paint them or something?"....blah blah blah....

    Speakers have to match???

    I hear ya on the WAF... Although at the end of the day, I can still say that the HT is the only room in the house that's mine. All the rest are hers!
