Hi-Fi Choice Magazine's RX1 Review

The Silver RX1 comes out on top in Hi-Fi Choice Magazine's Standmount Loudspeakers Group Test, scoring 5/5 stars with the following conclusion:

“It has the strengths of the super-svelte Dynaudio with most of the joie de vivre of the Q Acoustics. Everything you play through it sounds vital and engaging, subtle and detailed, polished and poised. It simply didn’t sound anything like a budget box.”

I am a professional musician and play the bass. I am always listening to the bass lines in any song and can clearly define a bass guitar tone, especially from the funk era. I have owned a couple of hi-end systems and sat in recording studios. I know how peace/instrument/vocals should sound. I bought these RX1 as a backup bedroom system, which i dont regret. At first the bass was nowhere, a bit to light,treble a bit harsh, bit colouration in the high-hats. After playing for a month, this speakers totally changed (4hours each day). No colouration in the bass and trebbles.. and the vocals superb. it doesnt drop that low, but instruments come to life on these.. I must say that I am totally impressed..i doubted it at first, but now I am sold..I even hear how radio stations mess up the sound (sorry engineers)

I have been a professional musician for over 50 yrs as a Bass & Tuba player and have owned many systems and listened to studio reference speakers under numerous applications and for the price of these speakers. I own the RX1's as I haven't heard any that come close to the uncolored performance of these little beauties.
