Opinions on Pelonis PSS110P monitors?

Anyone tried these?

I am currently in negotiations with Chris Pelonis to do some acoustical design/consulting for an existing studio. If I use his speakers, then he throws in some work for free. I'm having trouble finding many reviews, although what I have seen are glowing.

Old thread, but I'm wondering how these PSS110P stand with other well know reference speakers?

I went and listened to a demo at a nearby mastering studio, and I was pretty impressed.

We ultimately ended up purchasing a Focal 2.2 system comprised of two Twin6BE and two Sub6 speakers. I'm very happy with the Focals, but the Pelonis speakers were pretty eye opening. And Chris is a great guy to boot!

FWIW.

I've been using them for a couple of months. Great system. Very natural sounding with excellent detail. If you are used to something like Focals or Adam (had used S3As for 6 yrs) it may take a bit getting used to. In comparison they have a softer top though they are not dull. They are natural not hyped. I hear things on these that I didn't on the Adams and I thought the Adams had detail. The single point source is a huge advantage. Don't think you will be disappointed with them.

Hmmm seems like what I'm looking for!

Do they come with an amplifier, or is it possible to buy the speakers only?

One more thing, I think the crossovers are outside the speakers?

Thanks!

They come with the amp which is a custom Pelonis. The new speakers have the passive crossovers in the speaker cabs. They are bi-wired. Don't believe you can just buy the speakers.

If the crossovers are built-in the speakers, how come they are bi-wired?!?

If they are biwired, then the crossover would be inside the amp...

Have never looked inside the cabs but that's what I was told. The demo pair I used had the external crossover. My pair don't. The crossover isn't in the amp since there are only 1 set of terminals for left and right.

If the crossover is NOT in the speakers, then they are bi-amped. Bi-wire is another thing entirely; more of a Hi-Fi thang. Look it up.

Yes, the top is very relaxed but still extremely detailed. Focals definitely sound bright by comparison. But the mid-range detail is what really sets these speakers apart. Pretty amazing mid-range on these things.

Oh, yeah you 're right about bi-wiring... Sorry, I was confused. I remember seeing that in some Hi-Fi store overhere... What's the real benefit?

So the PSS110P now have their crossover built in, but still require 2 outputs from the amp for tweeter and woofer, right? Or is it only 2 parallel cables?

The more you describe them, the more I want to try them! That's the sound I'm looking for!

2 sets of speaker cables off of each of the terminals.

I find it hard to believe that the system isn't available anymore. Maybe your dealer is just carry the newer less expensive system. Chris may be out of the country. When I bougth mine he was in China working on a new studio.

Just an update to tell you that Chris replied yesterday (thanks to this forum). He gave me a lot of answers and he seems like a very cool guy! I'll audition the serie 42 (no PSS110P available near me) and possibily order a pair of 110!

Thanks for all your opinions.

Kellyd : thanks man!

mmorcos : ask Chris... He sells the 110 directly...

Trying to get used to them... Did acoustic guitar tracking all day long... The result was nice when listening in my car. They're very soft, but you definitely can hear any detail, eq correction all over the spectrum. I like them so far!
