The R-55E is a 3-way high-performance tower speaker. The beautiful curves of the R-55E and its sleek, elegant stature present a sophisticated addition to your home. Three 6½-inch aluminum woofers provide robust yet crisp low-end output for both music and movies, while the dual 5¼-inch aluminum mid-woofers accompanied by a 1-inch aluminized nano-silk dome tweeter deliver highly accurate life-like mid and high frequencies. This combination results in jaw-dropping performance at this price level that must be experienced to be believed. The R-55E ships with outrigger feet to enhance the look, stability and performance of this beautiful tower speaker. Available in standard phantom black, a satin finish designed for dark theater rooms where reflections are not ideal, and it also resists scratches, scrapes, and smudges. A gorgeous high-gloss black finish is also available which looks particularly amazing on this model will add high-end panache without the high-end price.

"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!!"
