I'm still enjoying the speakers very much. I replaced my LCR ribbon tweeter bookshelf speakers with RSL CG25's for a number of reasons. I'd "blown" the ribbons by driving the speakers too hard and I wanted new speakers that were more aesthetically pleasing. Most importantly, I chose RSL due to the amazing technical advice and support that I received when installing Dolby Atmos speakers last year. I'm very happy with them I would describe them as "airy" with a definite "punch" when compared to my previous set up. The CG25 as a center channel is excellent for dialogue and I've found myself re-watching several movies again and it's a whole new experience. I would highly recommend RSL and the CG25's. Their genuine desire to ensure that the consumer is well informed and happy is priceless.

I've had this system about two months and it seems to get better everyday, The support at RSL is really great. I've been an audiophile for more than 60 years, have owned more than 50 loudspeaker systems and heard nearly every make and many models up to 130k a pair. I just donated my umpteenth floor standing model to one of several large local universities - worth more than 3k per pair. Yes, they were state of the art and sounded marvelous. But not as good as the CG25s. I'm listening from one corner of a 14ft square. The room is 17x26 ft with one sidewall open to another open area. One CG25 is in a corner - the other nearest the open area. I have them facing inward enough to reduce reflection from sidewalls. These speakers have amazing horizontal dispersion so sidewall reflections audibly reduce definition. Now, how do they sound. Clear, open - no metallic diaphragm character - the absence of which is a pleasant and noticeable surprise. Although all the treble is there -clear and open. Instrumental timbre and detail are better than anything I've ever heard - the detail of the old JBL and Altec systems without the horn sound. I can hear ambouchere on horns and wind instruments when full orchestra is playing. Bass is incredibly clear. The music is just "there". Most noticeable is the absence of "the box" in the start and decay of transients. These speakers are clear all the way down to inaudibility. At the lowest volume, everything is as clear and open as at listening volume. They sound like holographic or dipolar speakers without the rear wall reflection. In short, they have no character of their own. They don't sound like speakers. I've finally found speakers I can live with without compromise. As for the subwoofer, I had a guest visit by the band director of a highly respected local university who couldn't believe the music he was hearing from his Copeland favorites. If you're thinking of new speakers, these do what RSL says they will - no hype. How refreshing that is...

I decided to give the new RSL CG5 series speakers a try after not being completely satisfied with my current setup. When I first chose my setup, I figured it was important to listen to as many speakers as possible to really understand how one set stacks up against another. So in the last year and a half I had visited all of my local high-end audio shops and listened to over 20 pairs of speakers in total. Once you get away from the Home Theatre-in-a-box offerings from big box stores and into proper speakers, there are a lot of good options. I tested bookshelf speakers from $500-$1500/pr CDN from companies like Paradigm, B&W, Totem, Monitor Audio, Revel, Focal, Sonus Faber, Martin Logan, RBH, Dynaudio, DALI, Elac, Bryston and more. All have great offerings and I really didn't hear a "bad" sounding speaker, just each with a different presentation of it's own. In the end I narrowed it down to my top 3 favorites and made arrangements with my dealers to take them all home (NOT easy) so I could compare and make a final choice. I chose ATC SCM7 V3's and matching center channel because they gave me a great level of detail/resolution, sounded natural and realistic, and had nice snap/attack/dynamics. After almost a year of ownership, I still enjoyed the ATC's but was left feeling that sometimes there were still not quite right, and always seemed to still sound like a speaker doing it's own impression or "take" on whatever was played through it. I was completely confident that the ATC's were still the best choice out of everything I heard at my local shops, but still wanted a bit more. After nearly two dozen emails back and forth with owner Joe Rodgers, I had a package from them in my house in a week... and I'm in Canada! With a good 50+ hours break-in, I have found they are very strong speakers and stand out above many other speakers in dynamics, openness, non-fatiguing treble, and free-from-the-cabinet, 3 dimensional sound. There is fine texture and detail in voices and instruments that many other speaker in the price range just basically gloss over. Each and every part of the music is given it's own space. Bass presence is very good and the speaker certainly sounds full, and a lot bigger that it looks. The sound presentation every review on here talks about is spot on. It must be due in large part to the Compression Guide getting rid of the cabinet's effect. I don't know how other companies have not stolen or tried their own take on this CG technology. The naturalness and realism are excellent, they don't draw too sharp or soft an image and the tweeter has no sibilance issues and is very un-fatiguing. Build quality is fantastic, and their customer service is just as impressive and simply the best, most helpful and respectful I have experienced from any retailer anywhere. If you live in the U.S. there is absolutely ZERO reason not to give these speakers a try. With free shipping both ways, and nicely discounted rates for international buyers, you don't have much to loose. I think the 30 day in home trial shows a lot of respect for the customer as well, and I wish it would be possible to get local shops to do this. Anyways, I could go on but the rest is up to you to try for yourself. I think about the price I paid for the RSL's, and they very easily compete with and outperform speakers in this price range and a fair bit above it too! Thomas
