We have partnered up with our friends from Russell K. to bring you an exciting competition for a chance to win a pair of RED 50 loudspeakers worth £1,750.
Our most recent review from the Russell K. stable was of the RED 120 Se by Steve Dickinson in hi-fi+ issue #209 where he wrote, “Compared to the regular RED 120, the Se edition comes with upgraded tweeters and reworked crossovers. The -Se variant crosses over at a relatively low 1800Hz (The RED 120 crosses over at 2200Hz) because this is a better match, and there’s an additional small capacitor in parallel which gives the crossover a faster rise time.”
He went on to say, “The difference is most noticeable on large scale orchestral music, which trade a little of the sheer size for a lot of the purpose and musicianship.
The RED 120 Se’s show you how the composer creates and maintains tension and the way the conductor achieves that through the performance; other speakers which go deeper have been known to gloss over this sort of thing, concentrating instead on giving you an impressive hit of bass, somewhat divorced from its musical context.”
He concluded by saying, “These modestly-sized speakers have redefined what I expect from this size of cabinet, and driver complement. That £6,000 asking price doesn’t feel like a stretch at all.”
What is the crossover point for the Russell K. RED 120 Se?
