Hot Speaker Packages from Destination Audio

by June 10, 2009
Destination Audio EF300 + 12" Velodyne Sub Package

Destination Audio EF300 + 12" Velodyne Sub Package

Occasionally we come across a hot deal and we want to let you know about it. Destination Audio is a sister company to RBH and EMP - both of which are known for their high bang-for-buck offerings. Well, they are at it again with a few new 5.1 deals. Now, while supplies last, you can get a pair of their F300T towers (sister to the RBH TK-5CTs), a pair of F300R bookshelves (sister to the RBH TK-5Cs), and a R300C center channel with a 10" Velodyne Impact-10 subwoofer for $999 or a 12" Velodyne Impact-12 for $1049. This is too good of deal to pass up.

Velodyne has long been known in the world of subwoofers for their offerings and their Impact series is more of the same. The F300Ts are an amazingly detailed speaker for the price especially considering their sister speaker got a 4 value rating from Audioholics when this new package deal is about the same price! The F300R bookshelf speakers alone were considered a great deal in their RBH incarnation at $499 a pair. If you were to buy the speakers separately, you'd be looking a nearly double the sale price. The Destination Audio speakers come in Rosewood or Black though the subs will be black no matter what package you order. Supplies are limited so get your orders in now.

Destination Audio has put together a second package with their CS100 mini-monitors and a Yamaha YST-FSW100 sub. This is the perfect solution for a smaller room or just for someone looking for an entry level package with a big sound. We reviewed the EMP ECA-4 package a while back (the sisters to these speakers) and gave it a 5 value at a $729 price point. The new Destination Audio deal? $399. I guess that would make it a 5.5, 6 maybe?

There are more speaker package deals going on at the Audioholics store including speakers by Infinity, Dayton, Yamaha, JBL, and EMP. Make sure you check those out as well. Surely, you'll be able to find one that will meet your specific needs.

I think my sister bought this package directly from the RBH headquarters. I took her down there and I'm not sure if it was the velodyne sub, or an RBH one. But her final price ended up being 1,010 give or take. She was real pleased with it, but she isn't an audiophile. She was just excited to get better speakers than she could have gotten at Best buy or another place like it.

This type of speaker package has been going on/off “sale” at the Audioholics store and/or directly from EMP at ebay for the better part of a year. It was available for ~$850 just a few weeks ago (even less with Microsoft Cashback), now they want $1000 for the same thing.

I don't view this as a sale.

Is it EMP or is it Destination Audio and do the tower chassis still rattle in the mid range? Have 3 sets of them now that are all have annoying mid frequency rattles.

It's both, both are RBH products. EMP and Destination offer a SIMILAR package to the former TK series offered by RBH however they use different driver materials to the TK's fibreglass cones, I am not sure if they have the same cabinet construction (I would assume so) or crossovers though (doubtfully as they are different cone materials).

As for the ‘rattle’ in the mid frequencies, I assume you have opened them up and checked that the wires aren't tapping on the cabinet, they added a thin foam packing that mainly serves to stop wire rattle but that can become dislodged during shipping and handling too. I'd just pull a mid woofer and make sure the wires are clear of the cabinet and are protected by the foam so they don't ‘tap’ the cabinet. Also make sure there is nothing (wires or foam) near the back of the cone that could be tapping during the excursion.
