RBH Sound, Inc Loudspeakers
For the past four years we have known RBH Sound via phone conversations and product evaluations only. It was refreshing to finally place faces with voices of the RBH Sound team.
massive Signature T-2 System (review forthcoming) in
piano gloss finish. Shane Rich put on quite an impressive
demo at their dedicated room in Alexis Park. The room
was rocking with guitar solos ranging from legendary
jazz musicians to rock and roll. We were particularly
impressed with the almost endless dynamic range we heard
from a Patricia Barber CD during explosive drum solos.
Shown here is an RBH Sound Signature 1266-SE tower speaker flaunting all of the custom veneer finishes. The wealth of finishes ensures a seamless blend for any room décor. The picture of the 1266-SE shown on the left is of a display model present the many custom veneer finishes available on the RBH Signature Series on a single model - so don't fret, it's not intended to be a retail speaker with a goofy finish. Although, it did look sort of cool up close!
All in all RBH are some of the most underrated speakers we've ever listened to. A funny story to note was that we we bumped into a person leaving the Alexis Park RBH demo room who casually asked Shane: "So these go for what, around $70,000?" He was referring to the T-2P system he just spent the last 15 minutes listening to.
The actual MSRP is $7,499/pr in black or $9,499/pr with a custom finish.

subwoofer (review forthcoming), 61-SE($1200/pair), 441-SE($620/ea).
The 1212-SE subwoofer features the Tuned Aperiodic Venting
(TAV) system which is said to bridge the gap between
vented and sealed subwoofer design.
TAV technology shifts the tuning to a much lower frequency than would otherwise be possible in a small enclosure, lowering distortion and improving transient response.
In walls anyone? RBH Sound offers one of the largest selection of in-wall speakers we have ever seen. While they look particularly good mounted on plexi, we recommend setting these in a nice solid wall... :-)
RBH Sound even has an in ceiling speaker with its own enclosure to minimize wall resonance.
