How do you rate the Sonance Cinema Series?
I would give Sonance a 10 for the Cinema Series lineup. They are a fantastic performer and extremely versatile at their price point.
For what types of installations is this line best suited?
I first tested the in-ceiling product in my own family room and was blown away by the performance. Since then, I have specified the in-ceiling product in several family rooms where good sound is important but cabinet space is at a premium. The speakers almost disappear, but their sound quality can’t be missed. I also like to use the in-wall product in dedicated theater rooms behind fabric walls. With as good as they look, it seems like a shame to cover them up, but they work great in these rooms when budget is a concern.
Describe the feature set of the line.
There is a range of products in the Cinema Series lineup, including in-wall, in-ceiling, and cabinet models, and they all sound great. They can be mixed and matched to fit the application. These speakers come with an integrated backbox and the “visual performance” look that has gone over so well with our clientele. This is a great lineup of surround sound speakers at a great price point.
What features would you like to see changed or added?
I would love to see Sonance expand the line to more of a luxury price point. They have a great foundation and need to build on it. An Architectural Series version would also be a welcome addition.
