I will ask about the cost of the Reference Aluminum 6.5" midrange driver - the RBH 165-FPN Cast Aluminum Midrange driver.

Okay, the RBH 165-FPN Cast Al midrange driver is $150 each (MSRP).

Ouch. $1,075 per speaker + the crossover x 3, 4 mid bass and 3 tweeters per speaker. Am I reading that right?

That will make an expensive update to the speakers. I may need to do them one at a time.

Yeah, $1075 per speaker.

Looks like $475 (3 tweeters + XO) + $600 (4 mid) = $1075 per speaker.

It seems you don't need XO for the midrange upgrade, but you do need new XO for the tweeters.

So I finally got around to hooking up my Energy 5.1 system in the basement. Fronts are 2 x RC-30, Center is RC-LCR, and rears are RC-Minis. After setting everything up, I am underwhelmed by the Energy speakers. I used to think they sounded awesome, but these RBH MC-6C bookshelves destroy them.

They have to be the best sounding speaker I have heard.

Yeah, I don't it's fair to compare RBH MC series to Energy speakers.

Even the RBH Impression series would be better than Energy.

The $1600 Energy Veritas V-6.3 tower vs $1450 RBH MC-6CT tower?

I still think the RBH MC is better than the Energy Veritas.

The RBH Impression series would be better than Energy RC series.

Thinking about replacing the Energy setup with 4xMC-4C for front and surrounds and 1x MC-414C for a center. Will the sound be improved? This is powered by a Denon 2313CI and a HSU VTF-1 sub.

That's always a tricky question to answer b/c this hobby is all about personal preferences.

I feel it may be an improvement, but there is absolutely no guarantee. Even if there were an improvement, the magnitude is equivocal.

Hello.

I started this thread some time ago, but haven't been around a whole lot.

If like to offer to update the OP...If you believe there is useful RBH info that should be added to the OP, or bad/out of date info that should be removed, let me know and I'll take care of it.

Thanks, and still loving RBH!

I've either owned speakers or auditioned speakers from most brands and I also still personally love RBH speakers.

Finish Options?

Hello Everyone,

I just registered and this is my first post.

I’m strongly considering purchasing a 7 channel surround system in the SX/R series from RBH. I’m currently debating the finish. Before I purchase the full set of 7 speakers, I’m going to purchase a set of SX-61/R bookshelves. This will give me a chance to audition them in my home and get my wife to agree to the finish.

Do you guys know if RBH offers the sandalwood finish at the same price as the black? Alternatively, we are considering the tier 1 walnut finish.
rbhsound.com/finishes.php

What are your thoughts and experience with selecting a finish from RBH?

Black & Sandalwood are same price (MSRP $1900/PR). Other finishes cost extra.
Tier 1: $2380/PR MSRP
