- NextLevel Acoustics Reference Cinema Speakers
Precision imaging. Quick, hard-hitting dynamics. Can be installed in- or on-wall.
If you're looking for cinema-style performance but don't have the space for bulky MTM speakers, the NextLevel Reference Cinema Speakers should be at the top of your list. Rivaling much more expensive models that monopolize much more of your square footage, the Referece Cinema series visually disappear into your room while creating a soundstage that is not bound by walls.
Speakers can make or break a home theater system, and their performance can be dictated by everything else in your room, including the room itself.
NextLevel Acoustics has been around for awhile now, based out of New England, and they’re mainly known for their high-end sound bar offerings. But the company makes a full product line - over 40 different speaker solutions - including bookshelves, in-walls, in-ceilings, and subs, and they’ve recently added the Reference Cinema series to the list, which can be configured as an in-wall or on-wall speaker. Like the rest of the product line, the Reference Cinemas are designed by industry veteran John Sollecito, who is well-known for his Infinite Slope crossover technology and audiophile-grade speaker designs.
The NextLevel Acoustics Reference Cinema line of speakers is a high-quality, great sounding speaker that fills a void in the market. It’s a cinema-style, MTM horn speaker that doesn’t carry with it a huge space requirement, or a huge price tag. I tried and failed to find another speaker of this design with 8-inch drivers, or an in-wall / on-wall form factor.
