Refurbished - R80 *

Product Details

  • 2-way active AMT design provides articulate high-frequency response and wide stereo imaging
  • Custom-designed, 6.8-inch, AMT ribbon tweeter responds to the subtlest waveforms and the highest frequencies
  • 8-inch LF drivers provide transparent mid- and low-frequency reproduction for clean sound and punchy bass
  • Biamped 150W RMS (LF = 100W, HF = 50W), Class D power amplifier with switching power supply
  • Acoustic Space settings (Linear, -1.5 dB, -3 dB, -6 dB) compensate for room placement
  • Balanced XLR and ¼-inch TRS plus unbalanced RCA inputs provide flexibility for seamless integration into any environment
  • RF interference, output current limiting, over temperature, turn-on/off transient, and subsonic filter protection
  • Energy Conservation Mode (with enable/disable) lowers standby power to <0.5W
  • External mains fuse
  • Power: 100-120V, 60 Hz or 220-240V, 50 Hz

The R80’s custom 6.8-inch Air Motion Transformer (AMT) ribbon tweeter responds to the subtlest waveforms and the highest frequencies, resulting in a greater sense of “air” and “space” that is characteristic of audiophile recordings. Custom coated, woven, 8-inch woven composite LF drivers produce a more dynamic output than conventional designs, thanks to the rigid cone’s ability to maintain a more constant dispersion pattern across its frequency response range. The result is transparent sound with narrow vertical dispersion, which reduces undesirable reflections, and broad horizontal dispersion for a wide sweet spot. Driven by a 150W Class D amplifier, the biamped R80 delivers an open, clear, and less fatiguing listening experience. Acoustic Space controls help compensate for room anomalies, and an onboard highpass filter to easily to add a subwoofer, making the R80 an ideal choice for any professional listening environment.

Gearslutz R80 review

“What’s most impressive about the R80, is the accuracy of the sounds it reproduces as well as the wide stereo image that's projected when playing back a mix.”

Synth Guru, Gearslutz, December 2016

Audiofanzine R80 review

“The transitions between low, mid, and high frequencies were seamless, and everything sounded very natural. The high-end was clear and detailed without being harsh.”

Mike Levine, Audiofanzine, November 2015
