The pricing on the RBH website should be coming soon. The free-standing RBH speakers and subs will be sold both online and by local dealers.

For truly full-range towers that will not require additional subwoofers in your room, I would recommend the RBH SX-8300. MSRP is $5K, but as with all Brick & Mortar companies, you tend to get 20-30%...

First, the SX-8300 has an MSRP of $2,500 EACH or $5,000 per PAIR.
The SX-8300/R has an MSRP of $2,950 EACH or $5,900 per PAIR.

But that's MSRP.

You can get big discounts on all big B&M...

The MC-6C bookshelf speaker has a FR of 60Hz-20kHz +/- 3dB, so the 150Hz XO seems kind of high. Apply Audyssey again (make sure totally quiet room). If it still sets XO to 150Hz, then just keep it...

Everyone needs to find their own best-fit system.

To some people, that may just be bookshelf speakers & subwoofers. And they are happy for life.

Some may take...

Sorry. I don't know much about the older RBH generations.

I can only make an educated guess and say any differences may not be very significant in terms of sound quality.

You're probably right.

I read where they said the SV towers could be " bi-amp or bi-wire".

But it didn't actually say "active".

They probably meant "active", but I would like to get a...

MC-6C are $900/PR MSRP, so 2 PR is $1800.

I don't know about the MC-414C, but the MC-414 is $319 each MSRP.

Not sure about the TS-10AP sub, but probably $500 MSRP.

So probably total MSRP...

Yeah, that is too bad.

My 61" RBH SX-T2 towers also have the feet, not the outriggers.

But it's too bad for guys who want the option of the outriggers.
