    It appears that RBH Sound has changed their sales model. Looks like the majority of their products are now available for direct purchase, except for the Status Acoustic line and a few other items.

    Have yet to hear their speakers. Love their EP3 and H2 in-ear phones.

    I consider them one of the best speaker manufacturers in the business. No nonsense, good build quality, well engineered. Their subs are way under-rated too.

    Not a brand that a I have a lot of experience with, outside of demos at shows.

    Wise to go consumer-direct. as long as they can handle the customer service side, it's a no-brainer

    RBH has been around awhile, nothing but good has been said about them. Kinda in the background, I am gonna have to keep an eye (ear) out for an audition.

    I don't think you'd be disappointed in an audition. I have not heard any of the new Impression or Signature SV series but the older SE, MC and Status Acoustic series were very good to outstanding.

    I'd love an opportunity to hear the RBH-55E. https://rbhsound.com/r55e.php At $1,875 - 2 grand (depending on finish) they'd put me in a good position to spend a little extra on processor/amp or surrounds. From what I've been reading they're well build and sound great at that price point.

    Yeah I think they are a bargain for what they are. I haven’t heard them but my friend James Larson measured them for Audioholics and was impressed with their performance.

    In fact looking at their response, the only issue I see is a presence bump at 2khz. The fact that it remains so consistent at all angles suggests good behavior and easy to eq out if you don’t like it. They also have very wide and uniform dispersion out to 10khz.

    Like Mathew was saying I've heard nothing but great things about these speakers I have a friend on audioholics that used to own orion's salks b&W can't remember what model but the very high end ones and a couple more very very nice speakers and he ended up selling all of them after going with RBH
