Left, right, and center
The A2.4 is a multi-purpose, medium format, symmetrical main home theater speaker with a unique, effective design. Use it horizontally as a center channel speaker or vertically for left and right channels. Either way it looks good and fits in well. Many A2.4 users call it the best they've ever heard.

I have owned this speakers for about 7 months and use them primarily for Home Theater purposes (at least once a day), they are connected to a 2018 Denon-X3500H Receiver which is connect to a LG-OLED C8 (2018 version). I do not use a SubWoofer (in an apartment, would be too loud), and use 4 rear speakers (small energy satellite speakers), I use the Chane 1.5's as my Left and Right. I very much enjoy this setup, the sound is clear and detailed. The only speakers I have owned/own that I can compare these to are the Energy's, a pair of Sony Core speakers, HTD Level 3 bookshelf, Polk S-15 bookshelf, and Polk LSIM Center Speaker. I personally think these are better all-around speakers, delivering just enough bass, highs, and clarity in dialogue.
I was surprised to learn that Chane resides about 1 hour away from me in Tampa, Florida. I am pretty blown away by my experience with the A2.4. I had read quite a few glowing reviews, so I had anticipated that it would at least be good, but it has exceeded all expectations. I would definitely describe the sound as "neutral" but I don't believe that means it lacks personality. Rather, I believe it is playing things the way they should sound in crystal clear quality. To me "neutral" can mean "flat" or "uninspiring" but that is not the case here. The A2.4 is just playing things the way they should sound. I can hear tiny, minutiae details like bacon or butter sizzling in a pan while watching cooking shows. Or watching Blue Planet II and hearing every single movement of the fish in the water, creating an ultra realistic environment that feels as though you are there.
I am so impressed with the A2.4 that I will undoubtedly be purchasing the A1.4's sometime in the near future. Jon is also a nice guy that I've had the pleasure of talking to on various fronts. I appreciate the attentiveness
I am very pleased with my Chane A2.4 speakers. I am using them as LCR, primarily TV and movies with occasional music play. They replaced E*** Debut 2.0 B6.2's and a C6.2. To my ears the Chane's are cleaner, more crisp and detailed. Dialogue was often difficult for me to hear with the E***'s unless I turned the volume up significantly higher than I otherwise would have it. I am noticing that with the Chane A2.4's the volume level setting is typically 4-5db lower and I understand the dialogue perfectly. For music listening it is more of the same, the E*** MAY reach a touch lower frequency but the Chane sound is much clearer. I use a 15" Rythmik subwoofer with them (I also used with the E***'s.) so i am not concerned about the lower end frequencies. For me and my purposes, the A2.4's are a perfect fit. I am hoping the L3-6-7 arrive soon... There is a good chance I will be buying them too!
A very, very good speaker to begin with compared to my E*** Debut 6.0 but it still need more hours to break in. But I have no doubt that these speakers will be a awesome sounding speakers. Presently, I am not thinking of returning them because I already like them even if they still needs more hours of playing music before reaching full potential. I might purchase 1 more A2.4 for the center to make LCR combo.
I got 2 A1.5's and an A2.4 for my living room home theater (about 50/50 music and HT). It's a big space - around 5000 ft^3 - and these more than fill it with sound with headroom to spare. They are incredibly neutral, so much more so than what I was used to that it took me a little while to adjust. But now, whether it's metal or classical, I'm hearing things I never knew I was missing. I tend to agree with the consensus that there simply isn't anything that competes with these speakers for less than double the cost (and maybe not even then). These are the kind of speakers that people will be reminiscing about years from now.
