Samson Technologies Rubicon 8A
What characteristics have motivated your choice?
- The presence of the ribbon tweeter (acclaimed in other opinions)
- Woofer 8 "(HS50M I had before and it makes a big difference on the desktop) and I wanted good bass
- The bass port on the front, a real plus!

jack inputs, XLR and RCA, but happiness.

For what purpose?
Home studio recording, mixing, mastering


After my HS50M is the day and night, I rediscovered that I was listening to CDs with the old.
stereo is really superb and the bass is very good.
I listen and mix of rock, metal, world music etc. brief music that requires a good record and a neutral rendering.


I've since today only. I was impressed not only my favorite CDs and I immediately put on a mix waiting and I must say it is rather surprising.

I had a great promo on thomann, 250 euros the pair is 50% off, I jumped after reading reviews

I tested it before the the yamaha HS50M from home who have displeased by their lack of final low. they were still good pregnant!
I would do this choice without any hesitation (especially at this price)

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 ...


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".


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.
