Samson Technologies Rubicon 8A : Benou (Macrocosme)'s user review

5

Value For Money : Excellent
UNESCORecords Connectors (jack, XLR, RCA), rglage gain + tweeter, but in front rear.
they have a good mouth but psent their weight!
I wanted to see what they had in the womb and if they kept the hard and I cram a pair (live coverage).
beware there is no protection ...

SOUNDS

I already test Alesis, Fostex, tannoy, prodipe ...
in this price range, the R8a Plutt are neutral, no bluff.

stereo image when it is unbelievable for the price. I'm not one to be caught by the hype but it looks like the ribbon tweeters are there for something!
Listen to prodigy diesel power and the voice over is "in your face" is like being in the cab facing the singer.
Another example is defined very clearly the reverberation of the play on the snare drum in the album Blood Sugar Sex Magik Red Hot.
there that listen to Aenima tool and work placement stereo instrumentals takes on a different scale!

I t really bluff (even if some albums sound very "flat" on these speakers). When I mix a song sounds good on it was all over then and this is the most!

cons by speaker placement is critical because they may give the impression of being rather weak in the bass so bad seats. they descend low enough, and fortunately there was no effect at all "bass boost".

OVERALL OPINION

Super quality price ratio!
may be a bit fragile and not built on top but that price should not be deprived!
pity that Samson has stopped production. if you find a pair that trane store throw an ear.
