On behalf of the Santa Cruz Mountains Film Festival, I'd like to thank you for extending the opportunity to audition the A12 in our system.
The A12 is a pleasure to use and sounds great! The A12 covers all the bases from an intuitive user interface that makes for fast setup, whatever the system configuration. The cabinetry is stylish, solid and looks to be very durable.
In our case, we used three A12s for LCR channels coupled with a custom subwoofer we already own. My concerns about subwoofer integration were quickly allayed when I noticed the ample High Pass crossover options. I also really appreciate the simple graphics that guide the user through system setup. You now have me exploring the virtues of cardioid bass.
Greater than all of these features is the sound of the A12. It simply doesn't favor a music style - it's that versatile. You name it and the A12 delivers. The A12 exhibits an undeniable authority of sound that immediately draws attention. Vocals are excellent, bass extension is generous and holy crap can they play loud! I think that may be my favorite thing about the A12 - that they can play very loudly without falling apart acoustically.
Best regards, Patrick Narron, Theater Director Santa Cruz Mountains Film Festival
