RBH Sound T-30LSE Introduction
The RBH Sound T-30LSE system is a speaker system cut from a different cloth. It provides that "better than being there" sonic experience typically only found in unamplified live musical performance. It was born to reproduce music with unparalleled realism, free of dynamic range or bandwidth limitations. This system can go toe-to-toe sonically with some of the most expensive gear made and comfortably hold its own. With only 100 pairs being produced, you better get your dose of overindulgence before they are going going … gone.

There comes a time in life where self indulgence becomes a calling, much like a wolf is drawn to howl at the moon. Some face a mid life crisis by splurging on an exotic sports car in an effort to redefine their youth. Well I haven’t hit middle age yet, but I definitely feel my calling to self indulgence would include dumping some coin on a truly state-of-the-art speaker system.
RBH Sound is no stranger to Audioholics. In fact they are “speaker of the house” for many of our senior staff reviewers, including me. There is a reason to this madness – it’s called performance. As audioholics, we are always seeking to push the envelope of performance without breaking the bank. In this category, RBH Sound has been a shining example of what a loudspeaker company NOT driven by marketing and litigation can produce for true audiophiles.
When the freight truck showed up to the Audioholics Showcase home I knew I was in for some heavy lifting. What I didn’t expect was the truck driver to forget the lift gate, causing me to carry each 300lbs+ speaker (speaker packed in crates) off the truck. Luckily my neighbor, who just returned from service in Iraq, helped me carry these mammoths up my flight of steps into the primary listening room.

Standing at just over 5ft tall these speakers don’t exactly blend into a room, or carry a particularly high WAF factor. I would say they are designed for the serious audiophile who decisively creates a room specifically for sound… or is a bachelor… or both. Don’t try to convince the wife these speakers would look great next to the armoire – they won’t.
Similar in size and shape to the venerable T2-P system that we previously reviewed, the T-30LSE system takes performance to the next step by integrating everything into a single-cabinet design. There are pros and cons to this approach, which we will get to later in this review, but they look stunning as a single box.
RBH Sound is only running 100 “Limited Edition” matched pairs of this product. Since their preview at CEDIA speakers have been shipping to customers and reviewers alike. I was honored to receive the pre-production first run pair with RBH’s owner Roger Hassing’s personal signature stamped on the back. Each production pair also gets the “Special 30 year Anniversary” plaque and comes in numbered pairs.

RBH speakers are amazing IMO and I doubt I'll ever switch unless someone can do better at the same price point.
I was very impressed with the speakers and only wish I could afford them. Alas I'll have to settle for their MC line most likely.
