This thread has been started to discuss the new speaker line from Premier Acoustic. I have a review written here on the forum that covers my thoughts on the speaker line.

If you have any questions or comments please post them here.

Thanks,
Parker

I use these speakers in my main room. I have the PA-6F system - which is the tower version of this system. I 100% agree with the review. These are unbelievable speakers at an unbelievable price. I tried out Polk Audio, Klipsch and Infinity. I feel the Premier speakers sound as good, if not better than the equivalent models in each one of these brands. The reason i went with premier was they were half the price. 999.00 delivered at www.homespeakers.com
I listen to all kinds of music and the towers sound great. Plenty of low end and clean crisp high end./ Add the sub on 5.1 stereo mode out of my Denon AVR-3806 and the room shakes. The range on the complete home theater system is crazy. I just put in king Kong which has a great DD track and man I hear everything. Clean and Crisp at all volume levels. I would recommend these speakers to anyone who was l looking to spend 2000.00 or less - you will enjoy them as I do.

Sultry, sparkling, sensational tweeter. In a word -- WOW! Fit and finish rivals speakers costing at least twice the price. They're made in China and -- that's
good, too. For about $300 (or less depending on where you buy them) the overall resolution and clarity from top to bottom is -- great! Be sure to use quality components to maximize the full potential of these 40" tower speakers.
I'm bi-wired with Monster speaker cables. Outlaw Audio sells a first rate analog .5 meter interconnect cable for less than $50. It's really brings out the
best from my Onkyo DX-390 CD changer. You can buy a nice two channel
factory reconditioned Harmon Kardon receiver for under $200 at Harmon Kardon's internet website on e-bay. Top it off with a DuaL 12" active subwoofer (also purchased on e-bay) for less than $125 delivered and --
you're really cooking!

The Premier Acoustic Speakers in Cherry are especially attractive. A real wood
finish (not cheap vinyl) adds to the substantial craftsmanship appearance. It's a two-way, front ported speaker. Consequently, the mid-range could be more defined, however, this does not detract from easy on the ears, non-fatiguing, listening enjoyment.

Don't hesitate to buy these speakers even though their brand name is new.
They will arrive securely packaged in dense cardboard boxes.

I'm very pleased!

The Premier Acoustic tower speakers in cherry are an especially good value,too! After a forty hour break-in period I'm enjoying excellent resolution
and overall clarity from these inexpensive gems! This brand "X" speaker rivals brand names like Klipsch and Acoustic Research which sell for a lot more.
Designed in the USA and made in China is a familiar outsourcing theme prevalent throughout American industry. Add quality components to maximize
the Premier Acoustic design and -- WOW!! Sound quality sweeter than apple
pie and -- without the calories (LOL).

The Tower speakers in cherry are especially nice. It's not a cheap vinyl or
veneer. Overall craftsmanship is excellent.

A very pleasant surprise at a working man's price !!

Lloyd:

I agree completely !!! Nice speakers at an affordable price. Use good quality
analog interconnects (Outlaw Audio: internet retailer), bi-wire, and a DuaL
low cost 12" subwoofer(found on e-bay) , and you will be in acoustic nirvana.

I don't know if there will be a response to this but you can be sure this is a testimonial intended to gather suckers, at least he wasn't so obvious to point out ordering specifics. Maybe the speakers will turn out to be great, and maybe someone will actually bite and order them.

They look like white van speakers to me. And this praise from individuals who obviously work for the company just reinforces that opinion.

I'm not a Salesman for Premier Acoustic Speakers. I'm simply a man who enjoys good quality audio. I've been an enthusiast for over thirty years.
I've had Klipsch, KLH, Wharfedale, and JBL speakers. The Premier Acoustic
Tower Speakers (cherry) are an excellent value for $300 (pr.) or less depending on which website you buy them from.

Cynical, skeptical, people are prevalent everywhere. That's the way it is.
Nevertheless, I'm ethical, enthusiastic, and entirely pleased with the Premier Acoustic Tower Speakers. Be sure not to skimp on your associated components. Use good quality analog interconnects like Outlaw Audio's .5 meter copper cables found at their website. Bi-wire your Premier Acoustic Speakers with quality speaker cables. Try the DuaL 12" active subwoofer found on e-bay for $125 (delivered price). Use a good integrated amplifier or go to Harmon Kardon's e-bay store and buy a remanufactured two channel
receiver for less than $200 (delivered price). Put it all together and -- enjoy the music!

You won't be sorry!

Sincerely,
John L.

Chris:

I've enjoyed listening to quality audio components for over thirty years.
The Premier Acoustic Tower Speakers (cherry) are an outstanding value!
For about $300 per pair you get a quality crafted excellent piece of equipment. Allow 30-40 hours of break-in time and use good quality associated components to round out your system. The speakers provide
excellent resolution from top to bottom without listening fatigue. The tweeter
is especially good without being too bright or harsh. I listen mostly to Jazz.
Larry Carlton, Maynard Ferguson, and David Benoit all sound great! The Rippingtons are another favorite and the Premier Acoustic Speakers make them shine, too!

I understand you being skeptical. Most people are. That's the way it is. Nevertheless, I recommend these speakers (cherry finish) without reservation.
For the delivered price the are an uncommon value.

Sincerely,

John L.

Parker actually reviewed them also, in the original post. I would expect they would not be tossed into the white van can based on that.

I accept that for face value now and the speakers sound like a very good value. Enjoy the good find!

I think there is a slight problem with the spec sheet:

12" Active Subwoofer
Sensitivity: 85DB 1 Watt 1 Meter
Ohms: :8 Ohms
Frequency Responses: 24 HZ-20 KHZ ( +/- 3DB)
Wattage: 200- 500 Watts
Size: 21.7" x 22.7: x 17.7" (H X W X D )
Weight: 56 pounds each
5 year Warranty
Color: Cherry or Black

24Hz-20kHz +/- 3dB FOR A SUB??


Centre Channel & Surrounds
Sensitivity: 88dB±3dB
Sensitivity measured +/- dB??

Translated poorly into English I'm assuming....

I gotta admit that Post #2 seems pretty creepy from a guy who is tagged as being with the company itself.

This is one of the most blatant posts/pseduo endorsements I have seen in sometime. Shame on Premier Acoustic.

Premier Acoustic Tower speakers are made in China because the cost of labor
is (obviously cheaper) than the USA, Canada, or Mexico. My Premier Acoustic
Towers replaced Polk model #RTi70 tower speakers purchased about two years ago for $720 from internet e-tailer Crutchfield. They're made in Mexico
and Premier Acoustic is far superior for less than half the delivered price!
The name brand USA, Canadian, and European companies have name recognitionwithin the industry and commensurately higher prices. Don't bother
picking up Stereophile Magazine or similiar monthly publications. They only review "top dollar" equipment like Paradigm, Legacy, and Totem.

The Premier Acoustic Tower speakers (cherry) cost $300 delivered and
represent uncommon value. If they were manufactured in Canada, the USA, or
even Mexico -- the price would surely be double!!!
