"I received my Impression Elite speakers today, R55E’s and R515E, I was totally blown away! First let me say how awesome RBH service is, it’s a pleasure doing Business with RBH. Shipped out the order the day I placed my order in 4 days I had my Impression Elite speakers. Opened up all 3 boxes everything was there, double box well packaged not a scratch or fingerprint on any of the speakers. When I removed the covering off of the speakers I was awestruck just how beautiful the speakers are! I installed the outriggers place them in my setup. I fired up my system, Yamaha 7790 AVR paired with an Emotiva XPA- 5 1st gen. My setup is in a 5.1, Polk Audio PSW 505 alone with surrounds, Onkyo 6 disc CD 390. I started out with Gordon Lightfoot, was totally blown away by a huge sound stage! Very smooth low end with Authority! The mid range, clean very detail, highs are the best I have ever heard! I than cranked up the volume about to reference level, again clean very detailed imaging, background details in music was very noticeable bass output tight accurate sounding! The Gloss Black enhances the aluminum drivers to the point of outright sexy looking speakers!! These Impression Elites just scream high Quality, High definition sound! The build of these Elites are outstanding! Solid! Clean! With a soundstage to die for! Best sounding Tweeter I have ever heard! I can’t thank “Audio Pharmacist” enough, I highly recommend this dealer. Believe me I done a ton of research since July of this year to October when I finally placed my order, and nothing comes close to RBH Impression Elites, without spent 2K more! I know I tried to find some other speaker manufacturers that came up to the build, with aluminum drivers used, high Quality crossover and the High quality finish that the Elites have, nothing comes close! I would like to thank RBH for their outstanding service and “Brian” for making sure my order got to me fast! RBH has a customer for life!!" — C. Walker

"There was a time when “Made in America” meant you were getting a first class, well designed, quality product. Not so much anymore if you can even FIND a US made product. But RBH speakers are the exception. They are designed and made in Utah with obvious care, exceptional engineering at a very competitive price. Some years ago now, I made a leap from my historical Bose 901’s, to a small theater system made by RBH: Best entertainment system decision I ever made Even tho the new rig was small, it produced, and has continued to produce, big, well balanced sound … I then added a couple RBH towers in Macassar Ebony – and they are exquisite, classy and produce the best sound I ever imagined. Recently after 12 years (tho still satisfied with my MM-4’s) I purchased a few 515’s in gloss black to replace my surround, rear and center speakers (I felt it was time and I wanted to add a little more class to my theater/living room). Got ‘em in 3 days all the way from Utah!! The sound from the 515’s is magnificent; the speakers beautiful. I’m hearing things I never realized were in my movie soundtracks or on my CD’s. All this and I spent much less than my local stores were charging (I did quite a bit of local and online research with both my ears and my pocket book). And, not the least of the process was the service I received from RBH in my purchase and selection … it was superb – as if my sales and service representative was in my living room planning the upgrade/update of my system, including his recommendation, ironically, that I keep my original subwoofer and just add a second one in. Bravo to RBH! I will be sharing my new theater sound/upgraded system (and beautiful 515’s) with all my friends and co-workers. Now, back to my living room/theater!" —Jim A., Mililani, Hawaii
