Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stelar sounds Build like a stone, feel like a professional HI-FI and sound cosmical. It fill my room with music at lower volume. There are still in grinding process but honestly that's why I brought them: to hear very well refined music.

Questions

i can use es50/55 as surrounds? if so, is better es50 or es55 for this use?

Asked by: garnett45
Hello, You can use either one for surrounds provided you have the space for them. The ES55 will be larger and provide more sound but the ES50 is also a great option. This link can provide you some information on setup positions for your home theater setup. https://www.dolby.com/about/support/guide/speaker-setup-guides/

Hello. What is the sound difference in high and mid tones between model ES55 & R600? I want to buy some speakers for my Onkyo TX-RZ820 and I'd like to know what Signature Elite & Reserve offers me. I want the highest fidelity possible for music and movies

Asked by: Diego Saints
I do recommend the R600 speakers if looking for the HIGHEST FIDELITY. The Reserve series offers a more refined sound quality with a bit more warmth, thanks to the wonderful Pinnacle Ring Radiator Tweeter and Turbine Cone Drivers.

I see this tower has two sets of wire inputs.  Why two?  I have a Denon S970h receiver that only has one set of front outputs.  Do I just use one of the sets on the back of the speaker?

Asked by: James509
Hello, the two sets of binding posts allow Bi-Amping if desired. Bi-Amping is not required. Leave the provided binding post bridge in place for a single wire connection. Be sure to remove the bridge for Bi-Amping.

What is the difference between Signature series and the latest Signature Elite series

Asked by: Gerarmage
The drivers and crossovers in the new ES line are improved. Voicing is similar in both the new ES and discontinued S line. Internal cabinet bracing was also improved upon. Happy listening.
