A wide-open soundstage and amazing sonic purity-that's what Klipsch speakers are known for. Their signature Tractrix® technology results in very little distortion from an exceptionally efficient design. Each speaker incorporates a 1" horn-loaded tweeter that delivers magnificent high-frequency detail. New and Improved Now in its fifth generation, Reference II speakers have even more content and superior sound quality for you to enjoy. You'll find re-engineered drivers throughout combined with a new crossover system that will capture your complete attention and excite your emotions. Improved cosmetics, including black metallic finished baffles, cerametallic woofers, new logos and feet, redefine the look of "big sound" throughout the line. Four Laws of the Klipsch Universe Beginning in 1946, company founder, Paul W. Klipsch believed four principles to be the foundation for great sound. Together, these four design principles-high efficiency with low distortion, controlled directivity, flat frequency response, and wide dynamic range-have and always will be the foundation for our stunningly powerful and precise sound. Fills medium-sized rooms with outstanding sound reproduction Accurate, non-fatiguing sound provides hours of listening pleasure Enhanced 1" titanium horn-loaded tweeter, 6.5" high-output woofer

These speakers remind me of the time I was a freshman in high school, and I found out I needed to get contacts to correct my vision. I remember barely being able to read the board, and having a hard time being able to read and distinguish letters from each other. Then I got fitted with contacts, and I remember putting them on for the first time and literally having a headache. The clarity of the image I was seeing was almost too vivid. It was a new world, and this is exactly the same feeling I have after buying these speakers. The clarity of the sonic image being produced is "bright" at first because often we're not used to hearing such wonderful differentiation between instruments and vocals. Much like my contacts, these grew to become the normal, and I would never again choose to return to the poor vision, or sound, that my old speakers brought me.
Once you have these speakers for a few days, you too will fall in love with them. My records and CD's have a new layer of sound and complexity that I haven't heard for the price. Pair these with a nice subwoofer and you're set.
As background, am listening to ALAC files ripped from CD, run through an AudioQuest Dragonfly Red DAC, and then into a modest SET/Class A tube amp that is feeding the RBs. The amp is a 2.0 system, so no subwoofer is involved. With the cables included, and taxes excluded, all of these audio elements sum up to $900. Frankly, I love this modest system just as much as my old $8000 system!
Am endlessly amazed at how lively, airy, silky smooth, crystal clear, and invigorating the RBs sound. Whether playing jazz, opera, techno, trance, rock, country, R&B, new age, classical, or any other type of music (obviously, I appreciate a diverse range of music) through these speakers, am forever thrilled with how lush and real the musical instruments and voices sound! For better or for worse, this awesome little system also makes it easy to hear the restricted dynamic range of poor recordings while enabling excellent recordings to sound so amazing that it will have you simmering in delight!
Midrange and treble are in perfect proportion to one another, with not even a hint of brightness. Am also a bass head, and was originally planning on introducing a sub into this setup, but am so satisfied with the deep and rich (but not boomy) bass that the RB fluidly creates that a sub would add little value.
Understood that the way a speaker sounds is dependent on the audio elements feeding it, and your system will differ from mine, but I’m EXTREMELY pleased with the RB-61ii. Without spending thousands more, am not sure how you could own a more satisfying speaker. The RB-61ii is a true winner!
