Rotel RMB-1077 Multi-channel Power Amplifier
Introduction Rotel’s illustrious history was started in Japan over 40 years ago by a family whose obsession with music inspired them to manufacture truly high fidelity stereo components of their own unique design. Today, Rotel engineers are known for their tendency to select only the finest capacitors, resistors and other parts from all around the globe. The goal of these searches for the best audio components is to create audio equipment that is musical and reliable, yet affordable. If a component has not met the engineer’s desired standards, Rotel is not afraid to make the actual part itself. This was the case for Rotel’s decision to make its own toroidal transformers. One of Rotel’s latest contributions to the home theater market is the RMB-1077 a seven-channel amplifier that retails for $2,500. Now, you ask, what is so great about this amplifier? Amplifiers have been around for years and much of the technology has not changed significantly. ...

Revel Concerta B12 Subwoofer
Introduction Revel: home theater and audio enthusiasts have come to know and lust after this brand name for nearly a decade. The Revel Ultima and Performa lines of speakers compete with the likes of Wilson Audio, B&W, MartinLogan and Meridian, with favorable results in the cost-is-no-object arena. Many entry-level home theater owners have stayed awake nights dreaming of finding any way possible to get Revel speakers in their systems. Thanks to the Concerta line from Revel, the dream has become reality, with Revel speakers priced at a fraction of their big brothers. Taking many of design elements that have made Revel into a world-class speaker brand and strategically cutting costs where costs can be cut without causing a large drop in performance, Revel has created an entry-level line of speakers called the Concerta series, which are a natural progression for AV enthusiasts who are ready to move up from the mass-market entry-level speakers to something with ...

Revel Concerta F12 Loudspeakers
Introduction Those of us who find ourselves enthralled by all things audio and video typically have a wish list of gear that would fulfill that ultimate goal of the no-holds–barred system. For most of us it is just that: a wish list. But to dream is human and we must have goals to shoot for. When it comes to the ultimate in loudspeakers, you can narrow the wish list down fairly quickly to a handful of the top contenders. One of those revered names is Revel, and their reputation for producing some of the finest loudspeakers in the world is unquestionable. The industrial design of the Ultima series demanded attention when I first saw them, and when I was finally able to hear a pair of Salons at editor Bryan Southard’s house, I was completely floored by their sound, so floored that I managed to get a pair of Studios for my very ...

RBH WM-24 On-wall Speakers
Introduction As plasma and LCD TVs continue to sell at blistering rates, speaker manufacturers have quickly become aware that the demand for thin wall-mount “plasma friendly” speakers has never been higher. Having recently upgraded my TV to a 61-inch rear projection set that is mounted flush into a wall in my living room, it was obvious that my floor-standing speakers were not going to work optimally with this set-up. With my smaller CRT television, I was able to set floor-standing speakers on each side of the set, with the center channel directly on top. This meant that the speakers and the screen were all the same distance away from the main seating position. With the TV now flush with the wall, I needed to find a solution that would still give me the big sound that I have become accustomed to, yet could be mounted as close to the TV screen as possible and ...

RBH MC-615-70 In-ceiling Speakers
Introduction When building my home theater, one of my biggest dilemmas was where to put the surround speakers. My theater is located in a room where a sectional sofa runs the full length of the back and side walls, so stand-mounted surrounds were out. Wall-mounted surrounds were out, too, as only one wide wall is available for speakers. The answer was to go up and ceiling-mount the surrounds. For my application, I chose the MC-615-70 from Utah-based speaker manufacturer RBH. This $299 (each) in-ceiling speaker features a 6.5-inch aluminum woofer and a one-inch swivel aluminum dome tweeter. A tweeter level control, accessed from the front of the speaker, allows you to choose from a standard-level setting or from -3dB or +3dB. The MC-615-70 has a frequency response of 50Hz - 20kHz±3dB, is 88dB efficient and features a built-in 70-volt multi-tap transformer. These speakers are rated at 120 watts at eight ohms and have a crossover ...
