They are beautiful in every way!
My initial impression still holds that these 802s don't sound like anything, i.e. they are transparent and disappear. The soundstage is so strong and centered that we never look to the speaker as a source but stare at the (missing) center where the precise clean audio dances.
We have not altered anything since you were here and Scot is enjoying manually programming the Harmony which has no listing for the MX160.
You forgot the spade connectors and I forgot to get a HDMI cable for Scot's missing PS4. I thought I had left a PSx power cable for Johnny to "manage" but I found it in the other room. No problem for us to play with zip ties and prep for the PS4 return. Save me an HDMI cable, please, and I will pick it up Thursday.
I must say this has been absolutely the most enjoyable process from start to finish. You, and Crowne Audio as a whole, are the equal of the state-of-the-art products that you represent. There might be better pieces from McIntosh or B+W but in our opinion there is absolutely no better dealer for them than Crowne Audio. Your knowledge, experience and absolute devotion to the ultimate in customer service is second to none. Indeed, I would suggest these qualities are almost absent in the retail experience to be found in the big box world we live in. Thank you for you and your brother's total investment in your passion which is Crowne Audio.
Have a great weekend!

"Thank you very much for helping me pursue my life-long dream of creating an audiophile grade sound system for my home. Your recommendations were excellent and I’m very pleased with the speakers, pre-amp and power amplifier! Your installation technicians were very friendly and you and your team responded rapidly to a bass driver defect. I have absolutely no reservations about recommending Crowne Audio to anyone looking to create a spectacular audio listening experience! Nael and his team are a pleasure to do business with."

"Nael Yacoub and Wael Yacoub at Crowne Audio helped me put together an amazing sound system. He understood what I wanted and helped me chose the right components. In what could be a very intimidating process, he made me feel comfortable and took the time to address all of my concerns without pressure… and that was all before the purchase! Two years later, I have continued to upgrade and tweak my system – and every time I had a question or had an issue – Nael was there immediately with exceptional customer service. Thank you!"

“I can say I have known Nael the longest of any of his current clients, because I had the first media room he ever built. His dedication, integrity, and determination enabled him to successfully handle all the obstacles my house entailed. Upon building my second home, Nael was the first person I contacted and the builder had to work around his specifications. He is reliable, knowledgeable, and always makes time for his clients. My wife and I highly recommend Nael Yacoub and Wael Yacoub at Crowne Audio in Lake Mary.”

"I discovered Crowne Audio many years ago when I wanted to add a simple built in audio system to my den. Even though it was a small budget Nael took the time to walk me through all the particulars. We ended up doing something more elaborate than I had planned with custom built in shelving, upgraded components and a 60” flat screen. The price and service was top shelf and I couldn’t have been happier with the result. Today I have a complete McIntosh Home Theater with a 90” screen, which Nael helped me build piece by piece. It took a few years but the result gives our family great pleasure every day. For quality products, super service and personal attention the crew at Crowne Audio will not be beat. Their showroom is definitely worth a visit … just plan and staying a few hours there is much to experience."
From John Euliano - 2014
"I had the pleasure of working with Nael Yacoub on all of our A/V needs in our new house. I can recommend him and his company highly and without reservation. .. At the beginning of our project, I had an idea of what I wanted, but I had no idea how to get there. Nael walked us through everything step by step. Throughout the course of the project, Nael and Crowne Audio were a joy to work with. He was accurate in his initial assessment of the scale and cost of our project. His company was on time and accurate in all of their installations. They didn’t blink an eye when faced with changes in the scope of the work. Our job was done with care and precision. Even now, well after the completion of the project, Crowne Audio is still helping me fine-tune the systems in my house. .. We would use Crowne Audio again and highly recommend them to anybody in need of a home theater experience that is second to none."
