Report By Steven R. Rochlin


RBH Sound Marani, OPPO, Clarus, And Denon


  RBH Sound debuted their 45th Anniversary SVTRS Limited Edition speaker system ($44,996) at the 2020 Florida Audio Expo in Tampa. As one of only twenty systems to be produced by RBH Sound, they developed this system for those seeking RBH's reference-grade loudspeaker system with DSP. RBH 6α six channel amplifier and Marani's flagship LPP-480F linear phase DSP speaker management processor includes delivery, setup, and on-site calibration by a member of RBH's staff. Being a modular tower system, there are three modules per channel. One SV-831R centrally located between two SV-1212NR subwoofers. Each module has the same teardrop profile and, fully assembled, reach a towering 92" in height. 




The SV-831R has three 8" proprietary aluminum cone woofers and an Aurum Cantus AMT tweeter. Each SV-1212NR subwoofer uses dual proprietary 12" long-throw aluminum cone subwoofers. RBH employs steel plates to secure each module to the one below to ensure a very solid connection. The system is designed to work seamlessly with the Marani processor.



To drive the system, RBH's 6α amplifier includes six channels of Class D amplification: two channels at 250 Watts (AMT tweeters), two channels at 500 Watts (8" woofers) and two channels at 1500 Watts (12" woofers). For the demonstration system here at the FLAX 2020, RBH used their 8α amplifier that included two extra channels (one at 250 Watts and the other at 500 Watts) for a matching SV-821CR center channel.




Also within the system was an OPPO universal disc player, Clarus Concerto, and Denon digital unit with USB drive to handle digital audio files.



Also at FLAX 2020 was RBH Sound's PM-8 powered monitors ($1950 each), which is built on the principle that powered studio monitors should be adaptable for the size of the studio, and for near or far field use too. At the heart of the PM-8 are RBH's Signature Series drivers: for bass and midrange, an 8" aluminum cone mid/woofer (also used within the SVTR towers) and AMT (Air Motion Transformer) tweeter.

My listening notes say “Big, and very cohesive, sound. Excellent phase / time alignment too! Wonderful soundscaping for such large speakers, which is a hard trick to pull off.” If you desire large, and accurate, speakers without crossing the $50k threshold, then RBH Sound's 45th Anniversary SVTRS Limited Edition speaker system may be the ones for you!
