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 ...

RBH MC Series Home Theater Speaker System
Introduction In the heyday of hi-fi, it seemed like there was a wide gap between the highest-end speakers and speakers the masses could afford. Today, things are different in that the budget-minded audio-video performance enthusiast now has the opportunity to buy speakers that can hang with the high-end players at a price that is only fractionally more than the speakers found advertised on TV infomercials, along with noise-canceling headphones. For over 25 years, RBH has been producing a wide range of performance loudspeakers that are designed and engineered from their Utah-based facility. I first became aware of their work four years ago, when AVR editor Bryan Southard invited me over to his home to get a second opinion on the Signature series that he had installed for review. I remember really admiring the fit, finish and workmanship. I was impressed with the solidness of the enclosures and the smooth, refined sound that they produced. One of the ...

RHT How To: Whole House Audio How-To: A Homeowner’s Guide to Planning a Whole-House Audio Distribution System By Joe Hageman March 2005 In Part 1 of this How-To adventure, I discussed the various types of audio distribution systems available. But which one is right for you? Do you have to spend upwards of $50K and rewire your entire house to accommodate dozens of pairs of speakers and LCD touch screens? Of course not, but as is the case with most things in life, you get what you pay for. Choosing the right audio distribution system for you depends on many different factors from the size of your house to how long you plan on living there. More important, it depends on your lifestyle and how often you plan on using the system. If you never entertain or lead such a busy work life that you’re rarely at home, spending a small fortune on a distributed ...
