I know that there is that audioholics review but I'm hoping for a couple other points of view.

Thanks.

I would certainly put the SX-61 up against any other high-end bookshelf speaker out there including Revel, KEF, B&W, Dynaudio, Focal, etc.

They would sound great used with a pair of great subwoofers.

Thanks AcuDefTechGuy, it seems that reviews for some products are hard to come by hence the request for personal experiences.

Very true. Of course, with the exception of a very few, practically all "reviews" are pure subjective opinions just like everyone else.

Each speaker company has its philosophy and all their speakers are made with that philosophy.

RBH makes speakers that measure accurately OBJECTIVELY and sound great subjectively.

Yes.

RBH also makes Status Acoustics and EMP speakers.

I was willing to sell all my speakers including Revel Salon2, B&W 802D2, KEF Reference 201/2, Linkwitz Orion 3.2.1, Philharmonic 3, Dynaudio X32, Focal 826V, TAD 2201, ATC SCM7, Funk 18.0 subs, Rythmik D15SE subs, etc., for RBH speakers. And I am completely happy.

That is definitely saying something, I hope to hear some of their high end offerings one day, and eventually own some.

I own 661SE's and SI-760's. The 661SE's are just about the same speaker. As stated, paired with a good subwoofer or two, would make for a nice two channel book shelf system. If you have any questions, give us a call, as an owner and dealer, I would be happy to answer your questions.

Thanks for the info. I've narrowed the speaker selection down to the RBHs and Triad's Inroom Gold MiniMonitors or their Inroom Omni Se. Any thoughts/comments on the Triad speakers? Will try to scour the web for more feedback.

Thanks again

I have the signature T2 for front center and left and right. They sound great, but the subs in the T2 are not as good as they could be

How are you powering the subs in your T2s?

ACTIVELY powering them with external amps using LFE signal from your pre-pro?

Or just PASSIVELY?

If actively, are you using something like Audyssey subwoofer EQ and Dynamic EQ?

The subs in my T2s give me everything I ever want in the subwoofer/bass department.

The bass is incredibly tight and musical.

And I've heard subs from Funk 18.0 to Rythmik D15SE to SVS 13Ultra to JL Audio F113 to B&W DB1.

And I've heard/owned bass from Revel Salon2, B&W 802D2, Linkwitz Orion, Philharmonic 3.

They are powered by the rbh amp that came with it. They have good bass, but my room is open so I think I need more bass. I have audyssey 32 with the denon x4000. Using lfe.

Do you have Dynamic EQ turned on and Dynamic Volume turned off?

How big is your room?

I've had a pair of T2 in my family room that is 18' x 20' x 12' open to 3 sides. And the bass is tremendous.

I've also had a pair of Funk 18.0 subs, and I definitely don't feel anything is missing with the bass of the T2s.

But I suppose every room is different, thus the saying YMMV.

I'm not sure. I just got the denon. I'll have to check it out. I ran the audyssey and that's about it. Should I have on the volume eq?

Turn off Dynamic Volume. Make sure Dynamic EQ is turned on.

Audyssey is just a starting point to me. I think Audyssey sets the bass way too low for one thing. I usually manually adjust a few things like XO and speaker & subs levels. After you make sure Dynamic EQ is in fact on, try increasing the level of the 1010 subwoofers.

If you still can't get the 1010 subs to sound dynamic and punchy, also do what I do.

Pretty much all the home automation (like Audyssey, ARC, Dirac, Trinnov) set every speaker and sub to 75dB. In contrast, professional theaters set every speaker and sub to 85dB. So I go for in-between and set everything to 80dB.

But again, the bass level (the 1010) is highly subjective. You may increase the sub levels by 3dB or 6dB if necessary.
