  • It would be super to get them before the end of the year. I usually take at least a week off around Christmas/New Years and I'd love to be able to spend some time with the new toys. I'm with blogreader though - it's hard to keep waiting when the A 5.5's are available. :) It would also be great to get some kind of teaser about the 700 series - general form/function. Are they "standard" slim towers similar to the L series, some kind of horn/compression driver, ...?

      I'm going to resist. I'd really like to get into our next mode of operation asap, which is to reveal a number of things only once they're already coming through the supply chain.

      Should be any day, however...

      • There will soon be a new Model L
        with new driver tech, clear as a bell.
        When they arrive and are set up they'll be a nice step-up.
        Old favorites will cast a new spell.

        Jon, sorry I didn't get by to visit with you a couple of weeks ago when I was on vacation in your area. Family, the hot weather and awesome beach sucked up all my time. My loss. Someday I'll get my priorities straight.

        • please add me as interested in 2 L7's and 1 L6.

            Looks like they're straight right now!

            • Following is a reader question copied from the forum just before it was upgraded. I'll include my answer.

              Good question. I'm looking forward to revealing these things and handing off comments on them to actual users. The models in the wild are not L models but 700 models. All are in production together, and at this point nothing related to design will change. They're signed and sealed.

              The only adjustment to one 700 model was an incremental, 10% tweak in a part of the circuit that amounted to about 1/3dB average change. Since I range all around these points in tuning I'm willing to make one incremental step change like this but no more. I've heard and measured all the possible variations.

              The L models, however, clicked so hard I had the instinct - which is the whole game, really - to immediately leave the room and sneak back later to record the values. The L's are so sensitive to design change that even the transfer function damping between drivers - again, down in the small fractions of a dB - is audible. Get it right and while the speaker makes no change to harmonic balance it does make that final click to texture and light.

              Production will not be affected.

              This is interesting. This is all a human thing that after a point doesn't lend itself to technical metrics and data.

              • Looking forward to the new content and pics. Hopefully EOP is a known by now.

                • Jon,
                  I was reading a post over at the Home Theater group on Reddit that a lot of consumer electronic products are going to get a (stiff) 25% tariff increase on imports from China.
                  Are you going to be affected by this at all?

                    ...
                    I can't imagine that we wouldn't launch both lines before the first of the year. It could be as early as mid-November.
                    Jon,
                    Are you planning to provide a coupon in the newsletter announcement for the L7s and 700s? November is coming to a close and I'm wondering if I should just buy the A5.5 using the coupon discount or continue waiting?
                    Can you share anything about the new products?

                    Also, I wanted to wish everyone in this community a very happy Thanksgiving and the rest of the holiday season.

                      Yes. Once we know arrival we'll publish a newsletter.

                      I can't answer that for anyone, but we should see EOP in a few weeks. Around that time and before arrival we'll also publish new web content.

                      Likewise!

                      • I'm interested in 3 L6s for LCR or 1 L6 and two L7s depending on price.

                        • Hi all, I'm a fairly new Chane customer. In the spring I picked up a pair of A5.4s and an A2.4 for my HT in my master bedroom. Couple not be happier.

                          Then someone on r/hometheater mentioned talk of new products happening in the forum here... I just read every post in this thread and the subwoofer thread. Wow! So many new products in the pipeline. In what seems seems to be great timing as I'm looking for LCR for my main family room HT.

                          L6, L7, L3, L3c
                          700 series (no models mentioned)
                          A4.5, A6.5
                          4 "XSG" 10" sub models

                          Did I miss anything?

                          I found the table in the OP super helpful to reason about the L6 L7. Has anyone done this for the other products?

                            Not yet - holding off on everything else until arrival. (The L7 has been the usual "3 Years in Development!" sort of marketing announcement thing only in plain view. That'll teach me. The good news is that it has evolved a lot in that time. Little resemblance to the original A7 concept.)

                            Looking forward to sharing a lot more as soon as we can...

                            • I was told last night that cabinets are done. That's six models. Next step, photography while crating is going on. Then shipping to the US for assembly, testing, inspection, and warehousing.

                              As always, all updates post here as they happen.

                                Are the L7 and L6 included in those 6 models?
