Bottom Line:   
I listen to my Eclipses for the last 20 years and I never got bored with them. For the lowest bass I use the REL Stentor III which is indispensably for a true and powerful music experience. The Eclipse have a unique stage in with and depth. But use only the very best front-end!

Bottom Line:   
Avalon ELIPSE CLASSIS is a beautiful speaker. The quality workmanship and finishing is excellent & topnotch. Thanks for the Avalon design team.

I am using the Gryphone amplyfier to drive, with innterconnect of VDH MC-Silver balance, and a pair of Venture Signature speaker cable. Replaced the Jumper to a pair of AUDIO NOTE ANPx instead of the original Cardas.

Setup is not difficult but of couse depands how you want the sound picture feel like. If toe-in more, the image will be more pointed sharp. If leave both speaker pararrel on front, it will create a very wide image especially when use it on AV but this is not the AV speaker.

The grill clothes must be used as they are an integral part as to minimize the diffraction. If you leave them off, the sound will be bright and diffuse.

Although the ECLIPSE CLASSIC is not a big size as Opus but still it performes very good full range and full dynamics of sound quality. If to power them within their designed limitation, they can be no doublt to generate the very good quality sound stage though it is just 2-way design.

If you love music, this is one of the speakers to consider.
