RFM 1 Standmount Monitor
The RFM-1 is a luxury compact speaker
that will compare with the best for overall quality with the
exception of low frequency extension, still it goes down to 40hz.
The electrical characteristics of the speaker make it only mildly
challenging to low powered 50w - 75w vacuum tube amplifiers, yet the
high power handling of the premium drive units make the RFM-1 the
ideal choice for high powered power amplifiers in the 50w -150 w
Using the most advanced Danish made Scanspeak drive units in a
simple two way configuration means that it is able to focus music in
the most beautiful way. Its crossover has been developed to
eliminate the time-domain distortions that are related to
interactions between high- and low-pass filters, sometime referred
to as crossover jitter. The results are improved dynamic speed on
percussive musical instruments
A lot of attention has been paid to cabinet solidity, leading to low
levels of coloration and resonance. The RFM-1's are sonically
explicit and musically expressive, with excellent drama and scale.
Acoustic suspension bass loading is used. Compared to sometimes
"bloated" bass from bass reflex designs this speaker has a tight and
tuneful bass. An immediate reduction of "boxiness" results in a
high transparency and very low coloration.
