About a week ago, I purchased a pair of Revel S206 speakers, as rear surrounds, to replace two Definitive Technology bipolar speakers I've had for years. The difference in the sound of the S206s isn't comparable, in any way, to the Def Techs. The Revel 206s cast a wide, enveloping, cohesive sound stage in the rear, which merges perfectly with the Revel M16 side surrounds. I played the movie Revenant, and I was astounded. At a movie theater, there are times when there is a crescendo of sound, which hammers down to add strength and emphasis to the story. I experienced this several times, at home, with the new S206s, while watching the Revenant. The two new Revel F206s might have helped with this also. LOL. I Highly recommend the S206 speakers.
Pros: Easy to mount on the wall with included mounting brackets. Sound stage accuracy is incredible. I love the look of them on the wall.
Cons: Absolutely none.

Matches the M106 and C208 very well. An improvement over my previous Pioneer (A. Jones designed) BS-22s.
Pros: Look and sound good. Easy to install.
Cons: Nothing of note.

Upgraded from a pair of Klipsch effects speakers - the difference was worth every penny. Movie sound effects are more pronounced and crisp as can be discerned in the "module lift-off" sequence in the movie The Martian. As for instrumental sounds, every nuance comes through clean and clear. The opening sequence of the classical Roy Orbison's "Black & White Night" dvd with DTS sound track is amazing. These effects speakers are a great timber match for my Revel Performa F52 front and right uprights and my Revel Performa 3 C208 center channel speakers. My set-up is a Marantz AV 7704 AV Pre Tuner, Marantz MM 8077 7ch Power Amp, Oppo 203 UHD Blu-Ray player and Sony XBR-49X9003 4K UHD tv. MK Florida
