RBH_SX-12_NGRBH Sound (RBH), manufacturer of high performance custom home audio products, announced they will be introducing their newly-designed Signature SX Series loudspeakers in their Venetian suite (30-311) at the International CES taking place this week in Las Vegas, Nevada.

RBH has teamed up with fellow Home Cinema Europe (Integrated Systems Europe) partners: Audio Design Associates (ADA), Avielo by projectiondesign and Screen Innovations to bring the finest high-end home theater demonstration experience to CES attendees. The combination of each partner’s “Best of the Best” products is sure to please even the most finicky home theater aficionado. “This year’s RBH CES demonstration is gearing up to be the best ever,” said Roger Hassing, president of RBH Sound. “With ADA’s integration of Trinnov’s room correction technology combined with the exceptional performance of our new Signature SX Series, we’re sure to have the best sounding home theater demonstration at CES.”

RBH’s new Signature SX Series replaces their award-winning, standard black finish Signature Series models and boasts a new modern, shapely and beautiful cabinet design. Each model also features RBH’s aluminum cone technology, silk dome tweeters and curved cabinets made from double-layered medium density fiberboard (MDF), RBH_SX-6100R_NGwith 1.5-inch thick satin black front baffles. The curvature and construction of the cabinets serves two purposes. The first and most vital is the prevention of destructive internal standing waves, thereby increasing sound quality. The second is to give the series its new, contemporary flair. Following traditional Signature Series design, the SX Series cabinets are all internally-braced to increase cabinet rigidity, further increasing sound quality. To appease audio purists and make wiring easier, all models feature high quality five-way binding posts, with tower models featuring two pairs, allowing for bi-wiring and/or bi-amplification.

RBH’s Signature SX Series consists of the standard line and a reference line. The reference line versions feature upgraded 6.5-inch fixed phase plug aluminum cone RBH_SX-6300R_NGwoofers, a liquid-cooled Scanspeak silk dome tweeter, and a modified crossover network to manage the upgraded drivers. The reference-level upgrades provide increased power handling and improved resolution, resulting in increased sonic clarity and performance.

The Signature SX Series encompasses an entire model range from the small SX-44C dedicated surround speaker to the large SX-T2/R reference modular tower. Also new to both lines are timbre-matched dedicated center channels, allowing easy horizontal placement on a cabinet, shelf or other flat surface. Nine new matching Signature SX subwoofer designs are also forthcoming, ranging from the dual 8-inch SX-88 to the flagship SX-1010P/R. These new subwoofers also feature RBH’s proprietary aluminum cone technology and one of two newly designed built-in amplifiers rated at up to 500 Watts.

The Signature SX Series is expected to begin shipping in February 2011. Pre-orders for the new series are being taken now.
