I knew only very recently about how much nuance was over pricing and giving high sales commissions for product pushing. However as I mentioned I was not exposed to the high pricing or the q demonstration that I hear about either.
I auditioned using dark side and aja. I'm not a rich man so would not pay crazy for anything. What I paid for my nuance 5. Took a couple of weeks to decide. They are what sounded good to me that fit my budget.
Did I hear better speakers. Yup lots of them. Paridigm monitor series being my choice then, but not at an extra grand that I didn't have. Again the best I heard for my budget. A decent starter system that lasted several years while we grew kids plus I sold all the speakers used for Are nuance speakers worth what I hear some payed for them. Hell no. Are they worth what I payed. And thanks to that used market I now run the very paradigm speakers I wanted then in my ht now, except their sub.
Do I know good gear. Yup pretty sure I do. Will I spend stupid to get it. My hobby over the last 4 years is finding speakers in need of restoration. Stuff that's being sold as parts or damaged are often repairable. That's how I got my paridigm setup mostly. I sell them after fixing them. Thanks for the links btw. Very insightful. Again my apologies. I was so triggered by the word Nuance. Some small bookshelves were in the same location as the giant ones we gutted too and my buddy is using them.
I appreciate the sentiment. I went off a bit too. Sorry for that. If it matters my whole point that I didn't do a good job of conveying btw is that good sound is relative. And like everything it follows the cost benifit line. I know this is an old post but I felt pissed that nuance is deemed crap.
It is if you pay too much. Everybody speaks highly of the paridigm atom as a great speaker. For is price point vs value it is. When new. But given the used price of atoms vs the nuance. Not even close. Btw my daughters system I put togehter with said nuance speakers with recapping and a Denon avr cost her a bucks.
She was rocking 2 Alexa in stereo. I told her I could get her 10 times the sound for a Speakers and caps and lying around roxal 55 bucks.
Denon avr 40 bucks. Avantree roxa Bluetooth Result 10x the sound. You should have seen the smile on her face. Does she care that her speakers are not the best. It's far better then she ever had. Plus she gets the satisfaction of paying for a deal and having better sound then most if not all of her friends.

Look at the cut out in the grill, if done correctly it's better than the way lots of hi-fi speakers and grill works. Joined Feb 4, Messages 2 Likes 0. Hi, I'm new here. I'm in the market for some speakers and driver units and came across some Nuance. I agree that this brand made some or many just "so so" speakers while there were lots "not so bad" when we know the kinda price tags we are talking about.
But I have a very uncomfortable feeling from one harsh comment from G above. As matter of facts we can find American flood market with crapy products tangible or intangible , and were over-acclaimed than they deserve. There are no lack of American Speakers over-rated putting profit margin before quality. Just because they are "American", so they kept you quiet? See today no lack of great Canadian brands, soon after changed hands to Americans, were sent to m. All these, using cheaper parts, cheaper places to maximize profit, so what's wrong with Nuance trying to make a few bucks.
Contrary to that comment, I hold that many Canadian products were and are not "hard-sell" enough, and I blame them not tenacious enough to hold tight their brands at home, like many European family-owned businesses. PS: background info: I was a manufacturer myself, I know how difficult to survive in this highly competitive market as small or medium manufactory , and before that as an employee, working decades as regional executive of American corporations, I know their tricks and business phylosopy too well.
Last edited: Feb 6, Tabledance, Welcome! The above criticism of Nuance has nothing at all to do with them being Canadian. The criticism is almost entirely based on the Nuance brand being exclusively sold by the "International Stereo" chain of stores which by all accounts were not ethical in their sales techniques, pricing, and financing.
Dishonesty in s stereo retailing was not exclusive to Canada. My first industry jobs were with Denver dealers who were frequently sued and finally shut down because of unethical business practices. As Rich points out in message 10 above, the price you actually paid depended on your luck, savvy, and negotiating skills.
Fortunately this kind of speaker marketing is now mostly limited to the back of white vans. Before this thread I knew nothing of Nuance founder George Baker. Co-founder of Audio Products International, at one time the largest speaker manufacturer in Canada, he was also responsible for high quality high value brands like Energy. That said, any evaluation of George Baker and the Nuance brand should be Manufacturers like API almost never made large profit margins selling house brands like dB Plus or Nuance to retailers.
Their profit came from the huge sales volume realized by being the go-to push product of less than ethical stereo chains. In my view this does not absolve the manufacturer of responsibility. These brands published "Suggested Retail" pricing far higher than comparable products in mainstream lines. They trained retailers' sales teams on slight of hand demo techniques designed to obscure rather than illuminate the real performance of these products.
In the case of the API house brand dB Plus that I sold, the trick was simple; make sure they were louder than anything you compared them to. None of this is directly related to the quality of Nuance speakers. But it is foolish to compare their business model to those of widely distributed major brands regardless of their country of origin. Love to see someone called me out "foolish", I assure everyone I will re-think myself when I am no longer a fool.
Anyway, I am not here to trade words. Just fairly expressed how I feel some harsh words posted above on a brand. Last edited: Feb 7, Benc New Member. Joined Apr 7, Messages 1 Likes 0. Wow interesting thread here. I ended up at this site because I googled nuance as I have a pair of their bookshelf speakers. I've had them for over 20yrs and am surprised at what I've been reading here. While I agree where and how they were sold, I disagree with the idea that they are such crap. Either I am deaf or they aren't so bad.
I was going to 'upgrade' yrs ago, even going as far as purchasing a couple different sets of speakers, jbl and Polk. I tried to give the other speakers a fair listen, trying everything from different types of music to movies, and wasn't happy and ended up sticking with my nuances. I had even tried upgrading my amp at the time I had a Sony. With all the mixing and matching of amps and speakers, I ended up keeping what I had - until my amp died and I upgraded to a Yamaha whichade things sound even better as it had less distortion.
My reason for looking into this brand was to try to get more info on the brand and what became of them, if they got bought out or just simply folded. But it seems rather than anyone giving any real info about anything all I see is people bashing them. I feel sound is somewhat subjective, as some people can't get enough bass, while others would rather next to none, and some can't tell if a speaker is clear or muddy sounding. It's funny how people will bash a set of speakers like this but think the crap sound you hear at a concert is acceptable?
I believe nuance was somehow related to audiosphere as they both contained the same brand components. Having owned both, I felt nuance has a cleaner sound. Does anyone have any real info on either of these companies? Nuance N Piano Used — Excellent.

You may not vote on this poll Love um 4 You can call this guy names, but you did ask our opinion on the speakers I think the statement above does describe the general consensus on the speakers although I suppose a less aggresive descriptor could have been used. That said, if you are happy with them, then that is all that matters.
