Revo-online does a repeater test and guess who wins (video)?

an interesting video where we can hear 5 superlative minute repeaters. Judge which one you like best.

For me the loudness of a repeater is not the most important (even though it needs to be heard) but the chime has to be the one which is the most pleasing to the ear.

From listening first without looking at the video, I'd rate them as follows: 1. VC, because it really IS the best sounding.  2. Roth  3. Corum  4. JLC, too flat which is only accented by being loud  5. GP, the regulator noise was most obvious as the chimes were very soft.

Hi Alex, The VC was the clear winner. The hour, quarter hour and minute sounds all had a good resonance and hormonic quality. This is surprising given the platinum metal. All the others except the JLC had very flat minute sounds although the JLC hour strikes were a bit flat. The others had decent hour tones but the other tones had no harmonics and sounded very short, flat and metallic. I didn't the GP was all that bad and would rate it 3rd behind VC and JLC. I did notice that the microphone was not always in the same place for each watch which probably affected the results. You need to control your variables. Joseph
The JLC sound hurt my ears, loud yes pleasant no, the VC

was a clear winner and the Corum and Roth were rather nice. The sound of the regulator on the GP was way too loud. Just shows how complicated it can be to create a good repeater!
Agree VC hands-down winner with...

Bulgari/Roth in 2nd for me. Wouldn't buy any of the other three (and that's assuming I could afford them!)
