A lot for your money - Impressed

  • Summary: Outstanding value for money. I am driving these with a hybrid tube amp from China. The amp gets its line signal from a pro-ject tube pre-amp coming from a pro-ject RPM 3 turntable. Whilst I am not an audio expert the output is fantastic.

Good sounding speakers!

  • Summary: These sound much better than the Energy Take Classics and they're more efficient too but you're paying for what you get. The best I can say is that I set them up, use Audessy EQ setup in my Onkyo, tweak the levels, and forget 'em. They look great too!

  • Summary: A good budget speaker. This speaker is better than some more expensive ones I have owned. I have a pair of these connected to a Sony Sr dn1060. The 2 channel sound is impressive.

RF-42

Jamie, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I ordered these speakers for a room that is 14x19 as part of a 3.1 set up. The speakers came in without incident and looked great. In installed the feet which needed room for improvement. There is one wood screw and one machine screw that is used per foot (2).
  • Pros: Crisp detailed sound Overall built very well
  • Cons: Poor quality wood screws for installing feet. Easily remedied though.

  • Summary: Still have these two as my main speakers. Can not say enough good thing about them. I know all of us hear things differnetly so what sounds great to one may not sound great to others. These handle movies, music and games with out any issue. Seem to great great sound.

Ed 42 ii

BW, Crutchfield
25 December 2014
  • Summary: These speakers sound fantastic with my denon avr 1913, and a rf 8" sub. The cabinet is a touch slim, making the speakers a bit wobbly on the carpet. I have found since I bought the speaker that the bi-amp option is pointless, and won't work with my amp even though the amp has a bi-amp option.
  • Pros: Sound size weight
  • Cons: Width, bi-amP is pointless

Great Apartment Speakers

MJB, Crutchfield
16 December 2014
  • Summary: Just got them out of the box tonight. I suspect they'll require a little break in time to sound their best but satisfied so far. Previously tried the PSB Alpha T1s which might have the upper hand for sound quality when listening to lighter fare but it took a bit of power to get them to open up and...
  • Pros: Great speaker for apartment living, perhaps too much if your building is wood frame, ours is poured concrete. Magnetic fastening grills are cool.
  • Cons: You could get alot more thunder at this price point (or by stepping up to the rf52/62s) but that's not what I'm after.

Great Speakers

Roy, Crutchfield
19 April 2014
  • Summary: These speakers sound awesome, powered by my Yamaha R-S500 receiver/amp, which is rated at the same RMS/channel output as these speakers are designed for. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars, is because the Vinyl veneer looks like vinyl, and on close inspection, the vinyl has some wrinkling on a...
  • Pros: Great sound and size. High bang for buck value. Cabinets have nice feet.
  • Cons: Workmanship on the finish could be improved.
