Been using my RS6 with my Denon 2307 for 6 months now and absolutely love them.
In my 5.1 layout , the sound is better than i have ever experienced before.
Bi-amped ,the RS6 on their own handle mp3 & flac especially , beautifully.
Happy camper here.

I was looking at Def Tech BP7006 and Klipsch rf-62 when I stumbled into a HiFi shop and he played the rs6 for me. I was blown away. the rs6 put the def. tech. and Klipsch to shame.

Does any one have any experience with these through a Yamaha rxv-1500 (or something similar)? What about through tube amps? I'm looking to build a SET tube amp that will put out about 8-10 watts.

Also... I'm still looking around. Could someone recommend a similar speaker in the same price range?

*Bump...Does anyone else have listening impressions or input around the MA RS6's? I'm doing some research and am hoping to get out to audition these soon.

I'll be comparing them to others in the price range like the Paradigm Monitor 7. I'm also interested in how these compare to some of the ID speakers from AV123 and Aperion in this range.

Thanks!

I've got RS6's and I'll be comparing them directly to AV123's X-statiks next weekend.

I've been running my pair (+ center) for about a month now, and have nothing but positive things to say about it. It does well with Jazz, Classical, and even Rock, plus being dynamic enough for Home Theater duty. Does everything well, if not 1 thing exceptionally.

I haven't compared them to anything but the MA Bronze series (Silver is much better) and an expensive pair of Vienna towers, which were better but at almost 3x the price.

I've been curious to read an x-statik review/listening impression, so I look forward to this, too.

I have statiks you have to give them time to break-in. More time the smoother and better they get.

well they are TOTALLY different animals...

Both are great in their own way though. I would only put the x-statiks in a bigger room since they are Open Baffle... I've personally heard them in a small room...not a good combo..lol

sorry about the thread bump -

i have the RS6 at home and have been having trouble finding the right positioning for them in my room. i feel the soundstage is either too wide or if toed in too much too narrow. the effect when it feels too wide is, at least in my room, not having a sharp and punchy bass or having vocals and snar drums off center.

can i get a recommendation for placement of the speakers in a room of this size.

16ft long
10ft wide
7ft high

speakers are placed along the 10ft wall, about 3.5 ft out from the wall and ~30 inches from the side walls.

sitting is at far end of smaller wall, center of speakers, about 2.5~3ft out from the wall.

Toe in has been from an inch to several inches. I've just never found the sweet spot, and it seems i'm having to totally reposition the speakers depending on the CD playing at the time.

Suggestions?

Thanks,
-adam

just read the thread, came up in my research on the RS6
very good info

a couple of things:
I would be suprised if ANY commericial media (LP, CD, SACD, etc.) had ANY spectral energy >16khz, 18khz at tops, but I doubt it...
a CD can theoretically record to 44.1/2 ~ 22 khz, but a filter is used to 'lose' the harmonics of the sampling freq, ie, steep attenuation >21khz, so with roll-off any content at 20khz may be way down, but then again, I bet there is none recorded...

the freq response for the graphs were done with a signal generator, not recorded music...
although I agree live music may have harmonics ~20 khz, I'm sure a FFT (fast fourier transform) would show <1% of the total energy at that freq
2nd, 3rd an 4th order harmonics greatly diminished in magnitude...

just ordered the RS6's, can't wait for them to arrive...
