Scan Speak tweeters

Has anybody had and dealings with these. I know the 2008 series comes in the DQ20 and sound pretty good. Im thinking about putting a good set in my little DQ6 compaq speakers and using them with a Carver black magic VTA 20s some time down the road. Tell me about your tweeter knowledge...inquiring minds want to know.

What's up MRHP? Well, I know it may be too late but if you are still looking I can offer you my observations of the differences between the Revelator and the Millennium tweeters.

Re: Scan Speak tweeters

Hey, glad to hear from you again!

Here goes. I have owned both and with a plethora of gear in and out on both. Both seem to have their own attributes as well as deficiencies.

Revelator tweeter - Precise imaging, laser pin pinpointable if you will. Especially in a cabinet with little resonances and a good crossover. Responds well to cable and upstream upgrades. A tad bright when pushed toward the upper limits but extremely good reproduction at low to reasonable levels. It is only when pushed hard does it get a tad "sizzly" at the upper end of the volume knob. I can not say enough about the imaging, almost surreal at times. The natural roll off and reproductive efforts are simply top notch. Basically, it could be considered by some to be a world class tweeter.

Millennium tweeter - Great all around tweeter for all genres of music. Can be pushed harder than the Revelator without the bright top end at the extreme volume level. Just a tad more relaxed toward the top end of the spectrum. Comparable imaging to the Revelator but in my experience, only with upstream gear that is more toward the upper scale. The lower the gear, the worse it seems to be but with the right gear and cables, can rival (not top) the Revelator. The natural roll off and reproductive efforts are simply top notch. This tweeter seems to be a little more forgiving of recording deficiencies, can get louder without fatigue but still has all of the subtle nuances needed to be a world class tweeter and you still don't need to strain to hear them. Also responds well to cable and upstream upgrades.

IMO, both are a top performer, just depends on your preference. The aforementioned are the main differences between the two. If you have a specific area you are a little more concerned with, let me know. I will offer you what I have observed and clarify a tad bit more. Hope this helps.
