Can One Speaker Make Or Break Your
home theater experience that’s what we’re going to find out as we reviewNK] is prime satellite home theater speaker system let’s get into it. Now This speaker package from UK centers around five identical two-way satellite speakers made it to a single 12-inch subwoofer and I like systems like this, especially systems that use five identical speakers in a surround sound configuration because it ensures the most coherence and uniformity in your surround sound experience much like a commercial cinema, but a lot of these systems can hinge on the performance of the subwoofer and in this instance, UK has included the UK 1001 of a known quantity which we will talk about more later. In this review and another nice thing about systems like this is that a lot of people are likely in the market either for a sound. Bar or something that is simple turnkey in a 5. 1 speaker package and so this is a legitimate contender against a lot of higher-end sound bars in luring people away from an all-in-one solution to a little bit more of a dedicated home theater setup on a relatively affordable budget and so that’s what we will be discussing today as we take a look at s vs s prime satellite home theater speaker system and of course anything and everything that we talk about in these reviews is always linked down in the description below and for those of you that want a little bit more detail on the s vs system.
Here Are The Specs Now Obviously
a speaker system such as this is aimed at home theater users that’s not to say that you can’t listen to music through them and we will talk about their music playback. Later, but the primary focus of this review will be to look at theNK] satellite system as a complete home theater solution. In terms of high frequencies, theNK] satellites are solid. This is not a speaker that you need to make excuses for given its diminutive size and the highs are incredibly detailed and very very crispy which is which is nice, especially in sequences and action movies like deepwater horizon, where all the chaos is unfolding and scenes like that are supposed to be violent, and it’s nice that the high frequencies here translate all of that drama and impact without becoming fatiguing. Now there is a lot of top and shimmer and sparkle here because of its metallic dome tweeter makeup, but it it does it never really becomes fatiguing even at high volumes.
It Does It Does Narrow Ever-So-Slightly As
the volume increases, so some of its spatial prowess will be minimized if you go for broke but the high frequencies on these diminutive little satellite speakers is really good now the mid–range from theNK] satellites on its own isn’t a lot to speak of because it hinges almost entirely on how well you set up and integrate the included subwoofer because on their own. The mid–range drivers in these tiny little speakers well. They’re kind of flat in a bit thin but integrate the subwoofer get it right and suddenly they take on a lot more weight and presence. Although the mid-range driver on these speakers is largely tackling that area in the sort of crossover point between the sub and the tweeter and in that range they’re incredibly dynamic and punchy and clear and dialogue has really good presence. I’m not going.
Still Ever So Slightly Cool Maybe Arguably
even lean, but dialogue continues to be pleasing enough and intelligible even at higher volumes. One of the things that does occur however, at higher volumes with these particular loudspeakers, especially in the mid–range is they can take on just like the tweeter a little bit more of a narrowed sort of be me presentation and as a result. Some cabinet coloration is presence not as noticeable as say the llamo s series that we’ve also reviewed on this channel, but again at higher volumes. It is possible for the mid-range like the tweeter to beam ever so slightly may be exhibit just a little bit of this but for a two–way satellite speakers, such as these it’s not surprising that they exhibit some of these characteristics now. At the beginning of this review I asked the question can a single speaker make.
Experience And I Argue It Can
especially in the case of theNK] 1001 cluded with this particular speaker package Because this thing slams It is so good. It has all of the impact detail and speed and it can play all but the absolute lowest notes in a movie soundtrack and how do I know this well. There is a scene that I bussed out to torture test subwoofers and it is from Deepwater Horizon and it is the scene where the cleaning room explodes in a wall of well just water oil and debris and with that scene. This particular sucker If the UK 1008 emp’d to hit those lowest notes, so it’s more of an error of omission but to be fair. There are only three subwoofers that I have ever come across in my travels that have managed to hit these notes and they are UK.
##Nk] Own Flagship Subwoofer, A Flagship
subwoofer fromNK] H and of course the King daddy of them all fromNK] Audio. Now the first two are well. They’re kind of approachable in comparison to the UK, which costs as much as a Honda Civic. So this really is the highest praise that I can place upon a subwoofer like the 1000 that’s included in an all-inclusive 5. 1 speaker package because it absolutely elevates this system from entry level to mid–fight contender and it’s almost as if UK is charging you for the sub alone and just kind of giving you.
These Five Satellite Speakers For Free.
It’s that good in terms of dynamics. This assist is an absolute knockout on their own. The satellite speakers themselves are a little bit thin in constrained but had in the sub and it sounds as if you’re listening to an entirely different. There is so much impact mated with the slightly forward presentation of the satellites and it makes for a very visceral experience, especially if you turn it up now in terms of a surround sound.
Because This System Employs Five Identical
speakers as you can expect the surround sound presentation is seamless and this this is something that I advocate for and why I like systems such as this because you don’t want any sonic gaps to be present as the action unfolds around you and you won’t find any of that here and this system is refined enough that it will show you the differences between films that are known for their mixing and say films that aren’t as evident in our tests when watching things like say Ford versus Ferrari versus Tom Hanks’s latest movie Greyhound Ford versus Ferrari Oscar nominated for its sound mixing Greyhound not so. Much and you can hear the differences through a speaker system such as this which is pretty incredible Now that we have discussed home theater playback. We need to address music now. I have to imagine that if you are shopping for a system like this home theater is going to be your primary focus and so if you’re looking for something that will also do more traditional to channel music. This really isn’t going to be the system for that not to say you can’t listen to music through it.
You Can I Just Would Urge You
likely to use UK or some type of surround sound processing found in your receiver as it will make it far more enjoyable. This is What we found when playing back music through our Yamaha a thirty-eighty or so needy and ten eighty but again as a two-channel replacement. This really isn’t the system now It is at this part of the review that I usually tackle downsides, but let’s be honest within their wheelhouse. The UK a satellite speaker system doesn’t really do anything overtly wrong so it really comes down to is this the right speaker system for you and I bring that up because well they’re small they’re meant for small to medium-sized rooms and if you have a large or you just have a taste for taking things to the max. This may not be the speaker system for you in which case I would argue you might want to look at UK as larger bookshelf or even tower loudspeaker systems because yes when pushed too hard this speaker.
Exhibit Some Coloration And Dialogue Can Exhibit A
little bit of a megaphone effect which we’ve talked about, but this isn’t uncommon for budget speakers and this isn’t uncommon for small speakers, such as this and when you encounter that type of a sonic response. You’re oftentimes asking the speaker to step outside of its means and so again. If you have a small to medium-sized room. I argue this system will get the job done and it may even play nicely in large rooms provided you understand its limitations, but if you are someone that’s like no man. I want to just go all out I want to crack the foundation of my house well.
- systems use identical speakers surround
- vs prime satellite home theater
- speaker make break home theater
- obviously shortage home theater speaker
- dedicated home theater setup relatively
This Isnt For You And There
are other speakers within UK lineup that you should be looking at because they will do that now performance downsides aside, I have a couple of just. Personal things that I think you should be aware of now for the purposes of this review. We requested these speakers in white because we knew that they would stand out they would photograph better, but if this were my system to keep long-term. I would not have ordered it in white or even the gloss black because in a home theater environment, especially one built around a larger screen, maybe even a projection screen. This high-gloss finish is incredibly reflective and so portions of the image will be reflected in displayed on the sides of these speakers, and that is incredibly distracting so for home theater use.
I Would Say Opt For The
black ash finish, which also happens to save you just a little bit of money. So obviously there is no shortage of home theater speaker systems available on the market right now a couple that come. are from deaf tech clips bulk audio obviously Bose and we’re going to link to all of those down in the description below but for the purposes of this review we did compare the UK directly to our Llamo s series Home cinema speaker package and I have to say the Yah Mo’s have it over the UK in the looks department now Christy and I have been debating a lot about which one sounds better. The Yah Mo’s are a little bit easier to drive and are a little bit more open overall, but the subwoofer that is meant to be matched to the Llamo speaker system just does not hold a candle to the UK. 1002 pick and choose your battles a little bit, but I will say this if you are looking for more of a hybrid system.
One That Kind Of Excels At
music and movies. I do consider the llamo speakers to be just a little bit better in this respect and the fact that they are well about half the price of the UK system that can’t be ignored either and sort of wrap it up. I do consider the UK s prime satellite speaker system to be a great entry or even mid-Phi whole theater. In a box type system it’s perfect.
