Bottom Line:   
This speaker is the best you can get for this budget. The speaker is EOL but if you can still find it, get a pair without thinking too long! If you want to get to the optimum, you have to install the control unit that comes with the speakers. This electronic masterpiece gives you a flat transmission curve, ultra-deep bass and super transparent highs. Two controls let you adapt the bass and treble to your room characteristic. I had to modify my amplifier to get this unit active in all surround modes, but the effort paid more than off. Full recommendation, at least worth 5 times the cost.

Bottom Line:   
its a real bargain. used first with marantz pm 7000, then proton ap 2000 pre and musical fidelity ma50-x monos (just 50 watts class a)and nad 541i cd.
Clear, fine and airy sound, natural.
sold my control-box, it makes no fun with cables and so on, bass was a bit deeper or controlled? if you use a good amp, there is no real need I think.
very well made and good sounding

Bottom Line:   
Ok now, down to the last writing from me. I have two other reviews below.

Canton RC-L 1998, 2000 Euro

Arcam 9 Int.
Arcam 10 P (Bi-amp)
Arcam 9 Alpha CD
Nordost Cable Blue Heaven Interconnect
Nordost Gold MK II Speaker cable

Pro-Ject RPM 6
Goldring 1042
Audioquest Coral Interconnect

First of all I´ld like to mention that this speaker is now only to be found in second hand.

As time and music has aged in my mind and my RC-L. The sound have become more smooth and less pin point. So my system sounds more involving in all spectra than before. Having my interrest for clarity and definition I have not yet found a system near this price tag sounding half as good as my do.

Was listening to Tracy Chapman the other day. And still, after almost five years of ownership I was surpriced that it still reveals new and undiscovered information to me. If you all lived in Sweden you would get a chance to listen to this set.

Bottom Line:   
Since 30 years i owned a lot of very good speakers but the overall quality of the RC-L is outstanding for that price. They produce a very clear and natural sound with a deep and strong bass. I recommend the speakers for all kind of music. If you have a chance to get them (They are out of production) you should do it now.

At this time for shure the best at this price. Very clear sound with excellent bass. I use it for classical music in a large room and it sounds like a concert hall.
