Hi i have spend a while trying to decide what to get for my master. I was almost decided on going with Gold Inroom LCR from triad. But yesterday i was offer a set of RBH SX8300-R with low hours with it matching center SX-6100C/R . Im really not familiarize with RBH don't really know the brand, but the speaker sounded amazing that i can tell you. I heard Triad Gold LCR before also liked the sound. Im have an emitiva XPA 3 for the fronts already on the way, and I'm thinking on using denon 4311 that i just took out from my den, to run the setup as processor and drive the surrounds. Subwoofer I'm think on going with two sb13 ultra from SVS. what are your opinions, my bedroom has around 3500 ft3
Tks
daniel

No bad choice between the two. If you've heard both, and you like the sound of both, the next set of criteria are price, aesthetics and size. Pick whichever speaker hits your criteria the best.

+1.

I've only heard the Triads out of the two and gotta say they were on of my favorite speakers. Doesn't look like you could go wrong with either so really depends on which sound you like better

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Must..stop...buying...every bluray release...

Both top of the line brands. Decide which is the best fit for your room and subjectively which sound do you prefer.smile.gif

Those RBH's are sexy! The scan tweet they use is also to die for

Flip a coin, can't go wrong with either. Was lucky to tour the RBH facility a few years back and was very impressed with the company and the people. I have owned several pairs of RBH speakers over the years and they are rock solid.

That said, Triad is on my shortlist for my next speaker upgrade. Although the DIY bug has really hit me so might be going in that direction with some waveguides.
