I am about ready to upgrade my 20s to 50s. Unfortunately I do not have a dealer near enough to me to listen before buying. I have heard the 90s. I know the 50s will not perform as the 90s. But I did want to ask anybody who is familiar with both, how does the imaging of the 50s compare to that of the 90s?

yes, that's the cover colour of the cloth on the bronze edition ones but this one is on an A9 as my dealer doesn't have that one. obviously you can order that too so I thought ''why not include it for reference''. I have a few more pics but they're more of the same on different angles but would be happy to post them if you like?

I think that’s all of them but it’s hard to check in the app as it’s uploading one by one Stick out tongue

Thank you! Your pictures really help. They may be saving me some money. I am not as in love with the silver grills on the silver 50s as much as I thought I would. Very much like the cloth from the bronze collection, but not sure how it would look with a gray wall behind it. Looks like I may be back to the standard silver with black cloth.

I'd personally would go with the standard oak and black cloth as that'll fit with grey but most of all with most other colours too. I can take more pics of mine in my new place if you like? My walls are still white so nice and neutral for your efforts Stick out tongue

I am going to stay away from the oak. Given my room’s layout, the oak would never be seen so not worth the extra money for it. So it will probably be black on all three sides. My fiancee’ still thinks I should get the metal fronts after seeing your pictures. I have seen the pictures and videos of the the 50s and your Eclipse in you old place. Is your Eclipse a 55 or 65?

Looking at the pictures, am I correct that the black trim around the metal fronts, is covered with the speaker cloth on the cloth covers?

Hi Razlaw,

Makes sense in your case.

My eclipse is of the 55'' variety and yes on the black cloth version the edges are covered with cloth. On the metal ones the black plastic looks nice though, it's not something i'd be bothered by it. It has a sort of texture so it isn't smooth and light comes of it very softly(almost like the cloth one).

I finally got new cables but still no luck, again it's a lot less but I think either in the tv or in the master there is a bad ground somewhere. Cat7 between the speakers is fine and so are other cat 5e or cat6 cables, but between the tv and the master is where the problem is... cat 7 gives ticking, cat 6 gives ticking and an electro sound when changing volume and or anything speaker related(data ground) and cat 5e gives the least of ticking and my cheapest cat 5e cable doesn't give any but the most electro sound. Spoke with Willie and he also confirms that's a bad ground on the data channel, so now we have to find out if it's in the tv or in the master speaker. I don't want to burst your bubble, but this is what I am dealing with

Hope you get the problem solved. It is very disappointing to hear of such ongoing problems. And thank you again so very much for all of the pictures and all of the information you have provided. I will probably move forward with the purchase, but will be going with the fabric covers.

It's also the colour on my 50s which are not the bronze edition.

Sometimes is hard to tell what a color really looks like in a picture. On your silver 50s does the cloth color look more brown or more gray?

Nowhere near grey - definitely a brown darker than a light fawn.

The thing about the silver is that it reflects the items and surfaces around so you can influence the colours fairly easily.
