Summary: I recently had these RB-61's in the cherry color. They were beautiful to look at and were built solid as a rock. I could not locate a dealer within driving distance and so I bought them site un-seen (Yes, I know. 'Not a smart thing to do). I had them hooked up to a Yamaha RX-797 stereo receiver which has very good specs and is advertised as being made with high-end components. You've probably noticed that I have been speaking in "past tense".
