RBH Compact Theater CT-5 / CT-7
Introduction Utah-based RBH Sound has been around for a while: last year was their 25th anniversary. In the time they've been in business, they have produced some formidable loudspeaker systems, notably the impressive Signature Series. Now they have turned their attention to the needs of home theater listeners who have limited space, addressed with the release of the "Compact Theater" series. Though the new design is diminutive, RBH has managed to include the same design standards – and solid, durable materials, notably aluminum – that are utilized in their more up-market products. The result is a very satisfactory combination of high-quality audio and practicality that will suit the home theater and home surround audio listener who wants something way beyond your average grotty little satellite speakers (believe me, you do). The system arrived in two boxes. One contained the MS-8.1 powered sub, a near-cube a little over a foot wide on all sides. The other ...

RBH Signature Series 5.1 Loudspeaker System
Introduction When purchasing your audio/video system, there is no component that better defines its character than your speaker system. Speakers define both the sonic and aesthetic personality of your sound system. With the better part of the audiophile era behind us, a time when a good-sounding product in a hideous package seemed acceptable, the importance of combining performance with an attractive look has never been greater. Several months back, I approached RBH about reviewing their loudspeaker systems. RBH is hardly a newcomer to the audio/video industry having just celebrated their 25th anniversary. Having seen and heard their speakers at CES 2001, I was intrigued with their products, as they appeared to perform very well in an environment that is less than optimal, and because their speakers looked to be well-built at an affordable price. Finding products of value is a high priority for After speaking with RBH, we selected a speaker system that was felt to ...

Revel B15 Subwoofer
Introduction The Revel B15 sub is the first subwoofer from Madrigal’s Revel speaker line in their comparatively affordable Performa series. Priced at $2,995 in Black Ash and $3,295 in faux Rosewood, Cherry or Sycamore wood veneers, the B15 addresses some traditional subwoofer problems with new, highly successful solutions. At nearly 20 cubed inches in size, the B15 is slightly larger than subwoofers like my reference Sunfire Signature, yet it still retains a modest physical footprint. The B15 is far more than a product that simply fills out a product line. This is a major design accomplishment. First off, the output of this 15-inch subwoofer is staggering at 113 dB at 20 Hz and an awe-inspiring 126 dB at 30 Hz. Revel has made headlines with a Harman-financed research and development budget that makes other high-end speaker manufacturers sick with envy. The B15’s 15-inch driver is yet another example of how Revel is creating products ...

Rotel RA-1060 Integrated Amplifier
Introduction Rotel is a company long known for low frills, high quality, budget-priced audio equipment. Their new $699 RA-1060 integrated amplifier continues in this tradition. The RA-1060 is a 60-watt-per-channel stereo integrated amplifier and has all the features one needs. Upon lifting the unit out of the box, I noticed that it was a pretty hefty 17 pounds. This is fairly considerable for a low-powered, solid state integrated amplifier. Once the unit was out of the box, I could see that it was solidly built, with a thick metal front panel (with built-in handles) and a large transformer. According to Rotel, the unit utilizes a custom-designed toroidal power transformer, as well as Aerovox T-Network capacitors, for better than average sound quality. There are no other specifications given, nor is there more information on the transformer itself, but it does appear to be very generously sized for a 60-watt-per-channel amplifier. The RA-1060 does not lack for features. ...

Richard Gray's Power Company 1200s Power Conditioner
Introduction The Richard Gray’s Power Company 1200S is the $2,000 follow-up AC power product to their breakthrough $750 400S power enhaser. The 1200S has 12 Hubbell outlets for your audio/video components, as opposed to four outlets on the smaller and vertically-oriented RGPC 400S. The 1200S, which is the perfect width to fit into a standard 19-inch wide three-space-high rack shelf. The RGPC 1200S uses two of the U.S. patented choke inductors like the one found in the RGPC 400S and is hard-wired with two 20-amp fuses. How Does the Richard Gray’s Power Company 1200S work? The principle behind the Richard Gray’s Power Company product is very simple. RGPC’s patented technology is based around a gigantic power inductor made of hundreds feet of copper wire, which is connected to a hefty iron core. This stores and stabilizes the power that comes from the wall ...
